The E2000 connector hold a single fiber in a ceramic ferrule. E2000’s have a moulded plastic body similar to the LC’s but are smaller. The E2000 also exhibits pull latching mechanism and integrates a protective cap over the ferrule, which acts as a dust shield and shield users from laser emission. The protective cap is loaded with an integrated spring to ensure proper closing of the cap. Like other small for factor connectors, the E-2000 connector is suited for high density application.
