What are the characteristics for fiber optic connectors ?

Recommended Posts

I read an electronic magazine in which there is a report on what are the characteristics for fiber optic connectors. After reading, I became interested in fiber optic connectors. So I searched some related materials and information about this topic from google. Today I come to this forum to turn to you to discuss my understandings are appropriate.




Here are my personal understandings:

Optical fiber connector, commonly known as the union, commonly known as fiber optic connector, is used to connect two optical fibers or optical cable to form a continuous optical path can be reused passive devices, has been widely used in optical fiber transmission lines, fiber patch panels And fiber test equipment, instrumentation, is currently the largest number of optical passive devices.

The main purpose of fiber optic connectors is to achieve fiber connections. Widely used in optical fiber communication system in the optical fiber connector, its many types, different structures. However, the basic structure of various types of fiber optic connectors is consistent, that is, the vast majority of fiber optic connectors generally use high-precision components (by two pins and a coupling tube composed of three parts) Alignment of the fiber.

This method is to penetrate and fixed the fiber in the pin, and the pin surface after polishing, in the coupling tube to achieve alignment. The outer part of the pin is made of metal or nonmetal material. The butt end of the pin must be ground and the other end usually uses a bend limiting member to support the fiber or fiber optic cable to release the stress. Coupling pipe is generally made of ceramic, or bronze and other materials made of two semi-synthetic, fastened cylindrical components made of multi-metal or plastic with a flange, in order to facilitate the installation of the connector fixed. In order to precisely align the optical fiber, the pin and the coupling pipe processing accuracy requirements are high.

Ps: Excuse me if I was wrong in words or expressions as I am a green hand in the field of fiber optic connectors. I need continual learnings.

What is your idea ? Do you agree with my ideas ? Any of your ideas would be highly appreciated.

May someone would like to help ?

thanks in advance
