As the name suggests, optitap connector is a device that connects one optical fiber with another optical fiber. It is a connecting device that can be repeatedly plugged and inserted between optical fibers, so it is also widely known as optical fiber active connector. The following connector manufacturers will introduce its function.
According to the structure of its connector, optitap connector is divided into many types of optical fiber connectors, such as FC, SC, ST, LC and other types of connectors. However, the same is true. The core components of various types of fiber optic connectors are the same, and high-precision components, namely, two pins and a coupling tube, are used to achieve fiber alignment and connection.
The emergence of various types of optitap connectors solves the problem of optical fiber connection under different conditions. In order to adapt to various environments, the performance characteristics of optical fiber connectors become very important. For example, the optical performance, interchangeability, repeatability, and its tensile strength and temperature adaptability of fiber optic connectors have specific requirements. Among them, the optical performance is very important, and the connector manufacturer tells it to determine the transmission power of the optical fiber. Since the optical fiber connector is a passive device, it is a kind of general device, which requires that the optical fiber connector can be used in any combination and reused, that is, the interchangeability and repeatability of the optical fiber connector are better. In addition, there are requirements in the industry: the tensile strength of the optical fiber connector is not less than 90N, and the normal operating temperature range of the optical fiber connector is between -40°C and 70°C.
After understanding the composition and main performance of the optitap connector, it is not difficult for us to think of the role of the optical fiber connector: the optical fiber connector realizes the low-loss connection between the optical fiber and the relationship or between the optical fiber and the cable, and it serves the optical fiber connection to the signal. The resulting impact enables our communication transmissions to be efficiently transmitted in different environments. And different models of fiber optic connectors meet our needs in different fiber optic connection situations.
