The LC and SC adapters from Alliance Fiber Optic Products guard against dust and prevent accidental exposure to laser light.

Alliance Fiber Optic Products (AFOP) recently released a new series of LC and SC fiber-optic adapters with external or internal shutters. The adapters are fully intermateable with standard LC and SC licensed products, AFOP explains, and are intended to offer stability and reliability in a number of applications and environmental conditions.

The external shutters include both built-in and snap-on designs to guard against dust and prevent accidental exposure to laser optical power. The internal shutters are fully automatic, AFOP says, “will not damage the ferrule tip, and provide necessary eye safety from potentially harmful light without any manual intervention.”

The fiber-optic adapters are available in LC duplex/quad and SC simplex/duplex options.
