  • Patent number: 6789954
    Abstract: A pull-proof optical fiber connector for use with robust optical fiber has a housing and a ferrule bearing barrel member therein having a first outside diameter over a front portion thereof and a second, lesser outside diameter rearward portion, and a bore extending therethrough forming an optical fiber passage. The barrel member and, hence, the ferrule are rearwardly movable under axially pulling stress, and a stop member prevents further rearward movement prior to any disengagement of the ferrule with an associated ferrule or other apparatus. In one embodiment of the invention, the stop member is a fiber retention member having a front face and a bore extending therethrough of lesser diameter than the outside diameter of the second portion, thereby halting rearward movement when the end of the second portion butts against the front face of the cable retention member.

  • Patent number: 6744939
    Abstract: An apparatus for tuning PM optical fiber connections has a first assembly including a light source which is connected to a first coupling stage having a rotatable polarizer, and a second assembly having a second coupling stage and a rotatable polarization analyzer for directing light transmitted through a terminated PM jumper cable coupled between the first and second coupling stages to a power meter. The output of the power meter is applied to a processing unit which, in turn, controls a rotation arrangement for the polarizing and analyzer. Crosstalk of this jumper is determined by ascertaining the angular positions of the maximum and minima outputs of the rotating analyzer, and the terminating connectors of the jumper are turned to the maximum value by aligning with a connector key.

  • Patent number: 6705765
    Abstract: A connector plug for an optical fiber polarization maintaining connector has a front housing portion from which extends a cantilevered latching arm having a cross-sectional shape of a truncated wedge, and a rear housing portion. A barrel assembly having a flange thereon and a ferrule extending therefrom is housed within said first and second portions and is incrementally rotatable with respect to the first portion of the housing and hence to the latching arm. In a first embodiment the flange is seated in the front portion and prevented from turning with respect thereto. In a second embodiment the rear housing portion is an extender cap having resilient clamping arms which grip the flange. The extender cap is incrementally rotatable with respect to the first portion of the housing and, hence, the ferrule is incrementally rotatable with respect to the latching arm.

  • Patent number: 6619856
    Abstract: An adapter for receiving a connector plug terminating an optical fiber has a body member having at least one opening therein having sidewalls for receiving the plug. The opening has a longitudinally extending channel for receiving the latching arm of the connector plug, the side walls of the channel being angled inwardly to create a channel cross-section in the shape of a truncated wedge. In one of the sidewalls of the plug, preferably an outer side wall, is a cantilevered spring member biased inwardly toward the interim of the adapter for maintaining pressure upon the side of a connector plug when inserted therein. The exterior of the adapter body member has a flange thereon for bearing against a panel member or the like, and a metallic member straddles the body member and ahs cantilever leaf springs forming locking members for bearing against the opposite side of the panel from the flange.

  • Patent number: 5212752
    Abstract: An optical connector (20) includes a ferrule assembly (22) which is adapted to be received in a plug frame (70). The ferrule assembly is held in the plug frame by a cable retention assembly (40) which is adapted to be secured to said plug frame. A leading end of the plug frame is symmetrical in an end cross-section which is normal to a longitudinal axis of the connector. After the ferrule assembly has been assembled to the plug frame, the direction of any eccentricity of the plug passageway or of an optical fiber terminated by the ferrule assembly is determined. Then the plug frame is assembled to a housing of a grip (90) such that the direction of eccentricity is aligned with a key (92) of the grip. The plug frame is capable of being assembled to the grip notwithstanding the rotational orientation of the plug frame with respect to the grip.

  • Patent number: 4900124
    Abstract: A biconic optical fiber connector (20) comprising two plugs (24--24) each having truncated conically shaped end portions (30--30) for terminating optical fibers to be connected and a sleeve (66) in which the plug eng portions are received is provided with an attenuator (70) which results in low reflected power. The attenuator comprises a plate-like element which is disposed between the plug end portions. Advantageously, the plugs are seated in the sleeve and the thickness and mounting of the attenuator cooperate to cause the plug ends to engage the attenuator when the plugs are seated in the sleeve cavities. Also, the attenuator is supported within the sleeve so that it is capable of slight movement in a direction parallel to a longitudinal axis (91) of the sleeve to self-adjust, if necessary, as the plug end portions are inserted and become seated in the sleeve.
