The SC UPC to FC UPC fiber optic patch cord is used in the fiber optic network connection if the SC to FC interface is required. It comprises of a patch cable that has one end with the SC UPC fiber optic connector and the other end with the FC UPC fiber optic connector. As both of the SC and FC fiber optic connectors come in UPC (Ultra Physical Contact) surface polish finish, insertion loss will be minimized. The patch cord will come in different lengths and optical fiber types to suit different networking needs.
