BWN-OptiTap-SC Corning OptiTap SC Hardened Adapter


Corning OptiTap SC Hardened Adapter is purpose-built to connect seamlessly with a standard SC connector within the adapter. It’s versatile, as the Corning OptiTap SC Hardened Adapter can be plugged into any standard SC adapter to establish a low-loss optical connection. This adapter is constructed based on the standard SC single-mode ferrule and spring assembly, all packed into a compact and rugged housing.

The design of the Corning OptiTap Adapter incorporates a dual-locking mechanism, featuring a push-pull detent engagement and a twist-lock secure retention. The optitap scapc adapter is also equipped with a keying feature, ensuring it can only be fully seated in the adapter in one orientation, thereby guaranteeing the proper alignment and mating of 8-degree APC ferrules.
