The optitap connector is a reusable passive device used to connect two optical fibers or cables to form a continuous optical path. It has been widely used in optical fiber transmission lines, optical fiber distribution frames, and optical fiber testing instruments and meters. It is currently the most used Optical passive devices.
The main purpose of optitap connector is to realize optical fiber connection. Optitap connectors, which have been widely used in optical fiber communication systems, have many types and different structures. However, when we look closely, the basic structure of various types of optitop connectors is the same, that is, most optitop connectors generally use high-precision components (composed of two pins and a coupling tube) to achieve fiber optics. Align the connection.
In this method, the optical fiber is inserted into the optitap connector and fixed in the pin, and the surface of the pin is polished to achieve alignment in the coupling tube. The outer components of the pins are made of metal or non-metal materials. The butt end of the pin must be polished, and the other end usually uses a bend limiting member to support the optical fiber or optical fiber cable to relieve stress. Coupling pipes are generally made of two-half synthetic, fastened cylindrical members made of ceramic, bronze or other materials, and are often equipped with metal or plastic flanges to facilitate the installation and fixation of the optitop connector. In order to align the optical fiber as accurately as possible, the processing accuracy of the pin and the coupling tube is very high.
