FibreFab offers a new twist on connector polarity

FibreFab has developed the QuickFlip LC connector, a new and intuitive method of rapidly changing connector polarity in fibre-optic networks.

As modern fibre-optic networks become increasingly complex, there is a need to easily change the polarity of duplex fibre channels in the field. Perhaps there has been a mistake in design or a need to connect the fibre to a particular piece of equipment that requires the opposite polarity.
