Abstract: front page image
(EN) An optical fiber connection apparatus (10) includes a pair of mating connector halves (12, 14) each accomodating at least one optical fiber (17). A plug half (12) is insertable into a receptacle half (14) to provide optical connection between the fibers therein. The receptacle portion (14) includes a moveable cover (50) supported thereon. The cover (50) is moveable from a first position covering the receptacle (14) and thereby protecting the fiber therein to a second position opening the receptacle (14) to allow for insertion of the plug (12). The cover (50) is also moveable to lock the plug (12) into the receptacle (14).
(FR) Un appareil de connexion de fibres optiques (10) comporte une paire de moitiés de connecteurs (12, 14) s'appariant et contenant chacune au moins une fibre optique (17). Une moitié fiche (12) peut être insérée dans une moitié prise (14) afin d'y établir une connexion optique entre les fibres. La partie de prise (14) comporte un couvercle mobile (50) porté par celle-ci. Le couvercle (50) peut passer d'une première position recouvrant la prise (14) et protégeant de la sorte la fibre à une seconde position ouvrant la prise (14) afin de permettre l'insertion de la fiche (12). Le couvercle (50) peut également bouger afin de verrouiller la fiche (12) dans la prise (14).
