  • Publication number: 20210132298
    Abstract: A dust cap includes a cap body and a pair of opposing latches. The cap body is adapted to cover a connectorized end of a fiber optic connector and cable assembly when the connectorized end is inserted through an opening of an interior of the cap body. The cap body further includes an opposing pair of resilient walls. The pair of opposing latches each include latching features that extend outside of the interior of the cap body. The pair of opposing latches each further include a mounting portion mounted to a respective one of the opposing pair of resilient walls. The dust cap may further include a pulling interface. The pulling interface may be adapted to attach to a pulling member and may be positioned at a tapered nose of the cap body. The dust cap may thereby be a cable pulling cap and may pull a fiber optic connector and cable assembly through conduits and other narrow passages.

  • Publication number: 20210124136
    Abstract: A light source unit generates an optical signal out of a bend-insensitive (“BI”) optical fiber that is compliant with a desired encircled flux (“EF”). The unit includes a light source to generate an optical light signal and a conventional multimode optical fiber coupled to receive the optical light signal from the light source at a first end. A modal conditioner is arranged to condition the optical light signal propagating along different modes of the conventional multimode fiber. A first bend-insensitive (BI) multimode optical fiber has an input end, the input end of the first BI multimode optical fiber being coupled at a second end of the conventional multimode optical fiber to receive the conditioned optical light signal from the conventional multimode fiber. The output from the first BI multimode optical fiber outputs an optical signal having the desired EF.
