General structure of fiber optic connectors

Update:30 Nov 2018

The main purpose of fiber optic connectors is to achieve fiber optic connections. Fiber connectors have been widely used in fiber-optic communication systems, and their types and structures are various. However, the basic structure of various types of fiber optic connectors is consistent, that is, most fiber optic connectors are generally made of high-precision components (composed of two pins and one coupling tube). Alignment of the fiber.

In this method, the fiber is inserted into and fixed in the pin, and the surface of the pin is polished to achieve alignment in the coupling tube. The outer components of the pins are made of metal or non-metal materials. The butt end of the pin must be ground and the other end typically uses a bend limiting member to support the fiber or fiber optic cable to relieve stress. The coupling tube is generally made of two semi-synthetic, fastened cylindrical members made of ceramic, or bronze, and is equipped with a metal or plastic flange to facilitate the mounting and fixing of the connector. In order to align the fiber as precisely as possible, the processing precision of the pin and the coupling tube is very high.
