Fibre optic connector interfaces -- Part 13: Type FC-PC connector

Defines the standard interface dimensions for the type FC-PC family of connectors. The parent connector for type FC connector family is a single position plug connector set of plug/adapter configuration which is characterised by a 2,5 mm nominal ferrule diameter. It includes a thread coupling mechanism, which is spring loaded relative to the ferrule in the direction of the optical axis. The plug has a single male key which may be used to orient and limit the relative position between the connector and the component to which is mated. The optical alignment mechanism of the connectors is of a rigid bore sleeve or a resilient sleeve style.

Interfaces de connecteurs pour fibres optiques -- Partie 13: Connecteurs de type FC-PC

Définit les dimensions d'interfaces normalisées pour la famille des connecteurs du type FC-PC. Le connecteur à la base de la famille des connecteurs du type FC est un ensemble de fiches monovoies avec une configuration fiche/raccord qui est caractérisée par une ferrule d'un diamètre nominal de 2,5 mm. Il comporte un mécanisme de verrouillage fileté et une ferrule comprimée par un ressort dans la direction de l'axe optique. La fiche a une clavette mâle unique qui peut être utilisée pour orienter et limiter la position relative entre le connecteur et le composant avec lequel il est accouplé. Le mécanisme d'alignement optique des connecteurs est d'un modèle à manchon à trou rigide ou à manchon élastique.

The text of document 86B/2239/FDIS, future edition 2 of IEC 61754-13, prepared by SC 86B, Fibre optic
interconnecting devices and passive components, of IEC TC 86, Fibre optics, was submitted to the
IEC-CENELEC parallel vote and was approved by CENELEC as EN 61754-13 on 2006-02-01.
This European Standard supersedes EN 61754-13:1999.
Specific technical changes with respect to EN 61754-13:1999 involve simplification of the system of
connector structure and reduction of the number of grades of plug connector interface and pin gauge.
The following dates were fixed:
– latest date by which the EN has to be implemented
at national level by publication of an identical
national standard or by endorsement (dop) 2006-11-01
– latest date by which the national standards conflicting
with the EN have to be withdrawn (dow) 2009-02-01
Endorsement notice
The text of the International Standard IEC 61754-13:2006 was approved by CENELEC as a European
Standard without any modification.

Part 13: Type FC-PC connector

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising
all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote
international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To
this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,
Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC
Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested
in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-
governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely
with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by
agreement between the two organizations.
2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international
consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all
interested IEC National Committees.
3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National
Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC
Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any
misinterpretation by any end user.
4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications
transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence
between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in
the latter.
5) IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any
equipment declared to be in conformity with an IEC Publication.
6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.
7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and
members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or
other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and
expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC
8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is
indispensable for the correct application of this publication.
9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of
patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.
International Standard IEC 61754-13 has been prepared by subcommittee 86B: Fibre optic
interconnecting devices and passive components, of IEC technical committee 86: Fibre optics.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published
