  • Publication number: 20190285808
    Abstract: Optical fiber connectors and adapters are disclosed. A connector assembly includes a sleeve seal positioned near a proximal end of the connector, the seal fits over an alignment sleeve contained within an adapter. The connector may include a heat shrinkable tubing covering a distal end of the connector to prevent ingress of moisture and debris. The sleeve seal is compressed by a proximal face of a connector plug frame. The sleeve seal contains a plural of sealing or mating surfaces to prevent the ingress of moisture through the adapter opening into the plug frame housing a ferrule. The adapter further comprises a washer-seal that is placed between an adapter flange face and a module face plate that secures the adapter with connectors therein to a rack of adapters.

  • Publication number: 20190235178
    Abstract: An optical connector holding one or more LC-type optical ferrules is provided. The optical connector includes an outer housing, pin keep, and two pins. One pin acts as a push/pull mechanism to release the connector from the adapter. The pin keep has two side clips with one of two side clips having an alignment key on a top surface. The alignment key engages a corresponding surface in the adapter housing to aid in polarity setting of the connector with the adapter. The adapter has a panel mounting clip that contains one or more latches that engage and retain the connector in the adapter housing. The panel clips and surfaces of the connector are constructed to reduce the overall size of the connector and adapter. The adapter has a plural of internal ribs forming one or more channels.

  • Patent number: 8041178
    Abstract: A loop back connector and methods for testing lines in a fiber optic network are disclosed. The loop back connector includes a ferrule having an interface side constructed for optical connection to a multifiber optical cable. The loop back connector also includes first and second optical loop back paths, each having first and second terminal ends positioned at the interface side. The terminal ends of each loop back path are adapted to be aligned to fibers in the multifiber optical cable. The method includes injecting a signal on a first optical path at a first location, looping back the signal at a second location onto a second optical path, and receiving the signal on the second optical path at the first location.
