Title (EN) COMPOUND OPTICAL COUPLER AND SUPPORT MECHANISM
(FR) COUPLEUR OPTIQUE COMPOSÉ ET MÉCANISME SUPPORT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A support mechanism for protecting an object is described. The support system includes at least one support or friction ring for providing dynamic protection to the object. One embodiment includes a support ring having corrugated bumps. Another embodiment includes multiple support rings axialty separated by spacers. In another embodiment a support mechanism is provided having at least one friction ring in combination with O-rings. A Compound optical coupler is also described, which has a self-wetting clear optical coupling gel and an elastomeric load ring.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un mécanisme support protégeant un objet. Le système support comporte au moins une bague support ou de frottement assurant une protection dynamique des objets. Dans une exécution, la bague support présente des renflements ondulés. Dans une autre exécution plusieurs anneaux supports sont séparés par des espaceurs. Une autre exécution comporte un mécanisme support présentant une bague de friction combinée à des joints toriques. L'invention porte également sur un coupleur optique composé comprenant un gel de couplage optique clair d'humidification et une bague de charge en élastomère.
