LC Pro-Slide Push Pull

LC Pro-Slide Push Pull Uniboot Connector is the easiest in the industry to disengage from an LC adapter, high-density mounted panel. By moving the sliding mechanism backward, the push-pull uniboot depresses the latch, facilitating ultra-smooth and easy removal. This enables the highest density panel possible, as well as allowing a smaller panel size.



  • Sliding mechanism allows for ultra-smooth, easy removal
  • Enables highest density panel/smallest panel size possible
  • Choose from 2.0mm/3.0mm as well as short-length boot versions
  • SM/MM/APC optional
  • Flammability rating: UL94V-0
  • TIA/EIA IEC and Telcordia GR326 core standard compliance
  • Meets with RoHS and REACH

LC Uniboot Connectors

LC connectors

LC Connectors and adapters are widely adopted in today’s LAN and data center cabling to meet the growing demand for small form factor, and to achieve high density fiber connectivity. Sanwa’s LC products utilize 1.25mm diameter optical ferrules, in contrast to the SC Series, which use 2.5mm diameter ferrules. As a result, the LC Series offer high density packaging and high optical performance.

As the most compact of their kind in the industry, Sanwa’s LC Uniboot Connectors are available in single, multimode, and APC Applications. The extended longer latch on top of the connector body makes it easier to disengage from the adapter, even in high density packaging. In addition, Sanwa’s LC Uniboot Connectors utilize stainless stop-ring and crimp-ring structures to provide stronger retention force between connector and cable.

FTTH Conference 2019

FTTH Conference 2019 in Amsterdam, was a great success thanks to visitors like you! The FTTH Council Europe is an industry organization with a mission to accelerate the availability of fiber based, ultra high speed access networks to consumers and businesses. The Council promotes this technology because it will deliver a flow of new services that enhance the quality of life, contribute to a better environment and increase economic competitiveness. 

During the conference, we were amazed by the number of visitors to our booth and the amount of interests you all have shown us! We were thrilled to showcase our Lightwave Innovation award winning FTTH Solution/Application consists of SC Auto Shutter ConnectorAdapter, and Optical Wall Plate to bring professional- grade optical cable connections to any space. The SC Auto Shutter Adapter offers the highest level of dust and laser protection, and the Connector with laser protection prevents fiber end surface contamination. The Optical Wall Plate offers two designs: standard size and slim with splicing and without to complete a reliable FTTH subscriber end connection.
