Abstract

Optical connectors are used both indoors and outdoors. To confirm the durability of optical connectors employing PC connection in actual outdoor environments, since 1997 we have been performing a reliability test on an SC connector installed in a high temperature and high humidity location. We confirmed that SC connectors with optimized ferrule end dimensions, which are designed to provide physical contact connection with long-term reliability, have maintained good levels of optical performance in an actual outdoor environment for 10 years.
