Title (EN) A CONNECTING DEVICE FOR INTERCONNECTION OF OPTICAL FIBRES
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE RACCORDEMENT POUR L'INTERCONNEXION DE FIBRES OPTIQUES
Abstract:
(EN) Connection device for connecting the end portions of axially opposite to each other situated optical fibres (30) and comprising insertion (12) and receiving means (11) designed for cooperation with at least a centering means (37) for radial and axial centering of the end portions of the optical fibres relatively each other. The centering means (37) is constituted by a sleeve (38) being closed in cross section provided with internal guiding elements (39) in the form of centering shanks extending in the longitudinal direction and external guiding elements (40) in the form of ridge formed portions (40) likewise extending in the longitudinal direction of the sleeve connected to the centering shanks and designed to allow the centering shanks to radially spring in a direction towards and from the centre axis of the sleeve.
(FR) Dispositif de raccordement pour raccorder les parties terminales de fibres optiques axialement opposées les unes aux autres (30). Ledit dispositif comprend des moyens d'insertion (12) et de logement (11) pouvant coopérer avec au moins un moyen de centrage (37) permettant le centrage radial et axial desdites parties terminales des fibres optiques les unes par rapport aux autres. Le moyen de centrage (37) consiste en une gaine (38) fermée transversalement et dotée d'éléments de guidage internes (39) sous forme de tiges de centrage s'étendant dans le sens longitudinal et d'éléments de guidage externes (40) sous forme de parties d'arête (40) s'étendant également dans le sens longitudinal de la gaine et reliés aux tiges de centrage. Lesdites parties d'arête sont conçues de manière à permettre auxdites tiges de centrage de ressortir radialement dans un sens menant vers et depuis l'axe central de la gaine.
