The optical fiber connector is a device that can be detached (movable) between the optical fiber and the optical fiber. The optical fiber connector precisely connects the two end faces of the optical fiber so that the optical energy output by the optical fiber can be coupled to the receiving optical fiber to the maximum extent, And minimizes the impact on the system due to its intervening optical links, which is a fundamental requirement for fiber optic connectors. To some extent, fiber optic connectors also affect the reliability and performance of optical transmission systems. Fiber optic connectors according to the different transmission media can be divided into common single-mode silicon-based fiber optic connector, multi-mode connector, as well as other plastic media such as the transmission medium for fiber optic connectors; According to the connector structure can be divided into: FC , SC, ST, LC, D4, DIN, MU, MT and so on. Among them, the ST connector is usually used for wiring equipment, such as fiber patch panels, fiber optic modules, etc .; and SC and MT connectors are usually used for network equipment. According to the fiber end shape is divided into FC, PC (including SPC or UPC) and APC; according to the number of optical fiber core there are single-core and multi-core (such as MT-RJ) points. Fiber optic connectors are widely used and varied.
Fiber optic adapters are widely used today, has been widely used! In fact, in general, we rarely see directly in life, but if you are using fiber optic home, then it will be closely related! Let's take a look at some of the important performance of fiber optic adapter it!
Flame retardant Flame retardant material is the burning point, a good adapter material is not easy to burn under the fire, which is an excellent flame retardant level.
2 heat distortion temperature. Plastic will deform under heat pressure, especially in the wild. Therefore, the adapter heat distortion temperature is also an important indicator.
3. Operating temperature -40 ~ 75. This is a normal adapter working range. If the adapter is out of effect in the cold temperatures will have a great impact, it is generally working at this temperature can work properly.
Insertion loss. Generally require loss less than 0.2DB, if the loss will affect the high light transmission, then your network speed will be very card.
5 board number. Continuously run between plug need continuous interspersed, usually require more than 500 to be qualified, low or less impact on the latter part of a larger, lower life expectancy.
6. Stable quality. Many adapters in the production process will appear color, which is not sure in the production process, as well as some minor problems, such as shell fracture, thickness and so on! Have to grasp!
