Fiber optic connector
ST-DRY(TM) fiber optic connecting devices are designed to protect fiber terminations from wet environments which can degrade optical fiber. The connectors are fabricated from corrosion and chemical resistant materials. Ferrules and alignment sleeves are made of precision-machined zirconia, while the connector and coupling adapter bodies are made of either nickel-plated brass or 300 series stainless steel.
