LC compatible fiber optic connector solutions
Based on various ferrule technologies, as well as, mechanical and optical interfaces, the Diamond F-3000® connector is a widely used and appreciated solution. The product family includes a complete range of connectors, adapters and network accessories, such as attenuators, hybrid adapters, transition adapters, terminations and reflectors.
The F-3000® is a fiber optic "small form factor" connector utilizing a 1.25 mm ferrule. The Diamond F-3000® family is designed according to the international IEC 61 754-28 standard and is LC standard compatible.

The difference is in the detail
The protective cap feature of the Diamond F-3000® connector opens and closes automatically when the patch cable is mated and de-mated. It not only protects the contact surface from scratches and debris, but also protects the User from any emitted laser beam light.
By using Diamond's two-component ferrule, in conjunction with our proprietary Active Core Alignment technology (ACA), performance is significantly improved in terms of insertion loss (IL) (typically < 0.1 dB; max. 0.15 dB for the single-mode "Low IL" version) and return loss RL (< 85 dB for the APC single-mode version).
In addition, the Diamond two-component ferrule offers the possibility to assemble special optical fibers with non-standard diameters (from 80 μm to 280 μm) or to use the Diamond Multi-Fiber technology (several fibers in a single ferrule).
