  • Publication number: 20020186934
    Abstract: a complete termination system is disclosed which utilizes a connector body which is also utilizable for conductive contacts, since force is provided by a female force pin assembly acting within the connector body. The female force pin assembly, after being inserted first and locked into place, accepts force insertion of a male member and acts to back a specialized terminus body rearward out of a sleeve against the force of a spring and as the male terminus body moves to a locked position. The locked position maintains the female force pin assembly into continued guided alignment force contact with he tip of the male terminus body to insure that the interruption of the continuity of the fiber is (1) aligned, and (2) as close together as possible. As a multi point termination, a multi pin connector system is illustrated.
