Brief description of fiber optic connectors

Update:19 Jan 2019

When installing any fiber optic system, it is necessary to consider connecting the fiber or fiber optic cable to each other in a low-loss manner to achieve the connection of the optical link. The connection of the fiber link can be divided into two types: permanent and active. Permanent joints are mostly achieved by fusion bonding, bonding or fixed connectors; active connections are typically implemented using movable connectors. This article will give a brief introduction to the active connector.

A fiber optic patch connector, commonly known as a fiber optic connector, is commonly referred to as a fiber optic connector. It is a reusable passive device used to connect two fibers or cables to form a continuous optical path. It has been widely used in optical fiber transmission lines and fiber distribution frames. And optical fiber test instruments and meters are the most used optical passive components.
