Product Details

3M ST, SC and LC Hot Melt Fibre Optic Connectors

Hot Melt ST, SC and LC fibre optic connectors have pre-loaded adhesive within pre-radiused PC zirconia ceramic ferrules, allowing faster installation than standard connectors that need adhesive preparation and injection. The adhesive of these Hot Melt ST and SC fibre optic connectors is resettable, allowing greater scope for adjustments during assembly.

Hot Melt ST and SC fibre optic connectors only require one stage of polishing using a polishing puck for both connector types (stock number 267-8122) and one grade of polishing film (stock number 267-8144). A polishing pad is also available (see stock number 267-8138) and a SC Hot Melt connector cooling stand (stock number 267-8087) for retaining assembled SC Hot Melt connectors immediately after curing. These Hot Melt fibre optic connectors accept multi-mode 125 micron fibre cables with sheath diameters to 3mm and, once installed, provide a low loss, mechanically stable assembly.

The SC Hot Melt connector requires a crimp tool stock no. 267-8100 to terminate the body via a crimp ring to cable.


Hot Melt ST Connectors have a loss repeatability of 0.2dB, 1000 matings,>while Hot Melt SC Connectors have >0.2dB, 200 matings.
