Optical coupling for connecting fiber optic cables
Currently, fiber-optic communication lineshave received the widest distribution, but they can not be carried out without such details as an optical coupler. With its help the connection of cable sections is carried out. It must perform a protective function to protect the welding site from environmental influences. In addition, the responsibility of this element is to protect the cable from ruptures and other loads on the line.
Today the optical coupler must meet the highThe requirements, which can differ a great variety. It all depends on the individual characteristics of certain types of couplings, but still it is possible to identify the basic requirements. First of all, the design of the product should be reliable and rational, while the simplicity of installing optical fibers is fundamental. Also, in no case should there be difficulties in the process of maintenance and operation.
Another version is an optical dead end coupler.Its features include a well-organized internal device, the ability to remove fibers without disconnecting the basic trunk cable, as well as the originality of the sealing. Many products are equipped with a body made of special plastic, helping to protect them from sudden temperature changes, aggressive environmental influences and excessive moisture. Usually a mechanical clamp is used, which helps to fix two parts. Quality sealing can be achieved by means of a rubber ring placed around the perimeter.
