The optical fiber connector is a detachable (active) connection between the optical fiber and the optical fiber, which precisely interfaces the two end faces of the optical fiber so that the light energy output from the emitted optical fiber can be coupled to the receiving fiber to the maximum, And minimizes the impact on the system due to its involvement in optical links, which is a fundamental requirement for fiber optic connectors. To a certain extent, fiber optic connectors affect the reliability and performance of optical transmission systems.
When installing any fiber optic system, it is necessary to consider connecting the optical fiber or the cable to each other in a low-loss manner to realize the connection of the optical link. Fiber-optic link of the connection, but also can be divided into two kinds of permanent and active. Permanent connection, most of the use of welding, bonding or fixed connector to achieve; active connection, the general use of the activities of the connector to achieve. Many small and medium-sized LANs and networks are generally connected to the edge of the connection, and the permanent connection is generally done by the network company.
Fiber optic connector (referred to as fiber optic connector), commonly known as the union, is used to connect two optical fibers or fiber optic cable to form a continuous optical path can be reused passive devices, is the largest number of optical passive devices.
Fiber optic connector
Through the fiber optic connector, you can connect two optical fiber or cable and related equipment, it is widely used in fiber optic transmission lines, fiber optic patch panels, optical fiber test equipment and instruments. Although the fiber termination and jumper production is very difficult, but the optical fiber network connection can be easily completed. As long as the connected device (hub device and network card) has a fiber-optic connection interface, you can use a section of a good or purchased fiber soft jumper to connect, the connection method and twisted pair, network card and hub connection the same. However, unlike twisted pairs, fiber optic connectors have a variety of different types, and different types of connectors can not be directly connected.
