  • Patent number: 9798089
    Abstract: Fiber optic connector assemblies and method for assembling the same are disclosed. In one embodiment, a fiber optic connector assembly includes an optical fiber having an inner glass region, a polymer layer surrounding the inner glass region, and a windowed portion, wherein the inner glass region is exposed at the windowed portion. The fiber optic connector assembly further includes a connector body having a demarcation region at a first end, wherein the optical fiber is disposed within the connector body such that at least a portion of the windowed portion is positioned in the demarcation region, and the optical fiber is adhered to the connector body at the windowed portion. In another embodiment, the demarcation region includes an opening in the outer jacket that exposes the at least a portion of the windowed portion of the plurality of optical fibers and the optical fibers are adhered to a portion of the cable.

  • Patent number: 9594225
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods for creating a demarcation of at least one optical fiber in a structure along with a fiber optic cable. The method may include the steps of providing at least one optical fiber having a covering, heating a portion of the covering, and deforming the covering about the at least one optical fiber at a first location to inhibit movement of the at least one optical fiber with respect to the covering. The method may be applied to one or more optical fibers within a covering such as bare loose fibers, ribbonized fibers, buffered fibers or the like.

  • Patent number: 9513449
    Abstract: An optical communication cable is provided. The optical communications cable includes a cable body having an outer surface, an inner surface and a channel defined by the inner surface. An optical transmission element is located in the channel. The cable includes an ink layer positioned on the outer surface of the cable body, and the ink layer is formed from charged ink droplets adhered to the outer surface of the cable body. The cable also includes a translucent layer coupled to the outer surface of the cable body over the ink layer such that the ink layer is located between the outer surface of the cable body and an inner surface of the translucent layer.

  • Patent number: 9423583
    Abstract: Methods of controlling the position of an optical fiber having a minimum bend radius within an optical fiber channel in a fiber optic cable having a small footprint are disclosed. The position of the optical fibers is controlled so that the fiber is not bent at a radius below its minimum bend radius.

  • Patent number: 9075211
    Abstract: A cable includes a channel with an aspect ratio that houses optical fibers therein. The cable includes first and second stranded conductors on opposing sides of the channel. The channel is arranged with respect to the stranded conductors so that the fibers assume low strain positions in the channel when the cable is bent.
