Mating sleeves provide an uninterrupted physical contact between two single-mode fiber cables SMC with core-centering.
Two connectors of type FC PC (0°-polish) or of type FC APC (8°-polish) can be connected.
There are hybrid mating sleeves for connecting two fiber cales with differing types of connectors.
We recommend to use these mating sleeves with core aligned single-mode fiber cables only.
In case of non-core centered fiber cables or for polarization-maintaining fiber cables we recommend to use fiber-to-fiber couplers with integrated opics.
The mating sleeves are not suitable for fiber cables with end caps.
