Optical connector types FC, SC, ST, mainly to distinguish the shape of parts.

FC: threaded connection, rotation lock;
SC: Axial pluggable rectangular shell structure, bayonet locking;
ST: spring keyed bayonet structure, bayonet rotation lock.

PC, UPC, APC according to the shape of the end face grinding distinguish.

PC: flat;
UPC: spherical;
