Title (EN) OPTICAL FIBER MANAGEMENT DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE GESTION DE FIBRES OPTIQUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN) An apparatus and method for managing one or more flexible lines such as optical fibers, wherein each fiber has two fixed ends. Optical fibers are arranged in a curved figure- eight pattern lying in three-dimensions on the exterior curved winding surface of a tubular shell. The configuration is guided by winding tracks on either exterior side of shell. The curvatures of the shell and winding tracks are such that the bend of the managed fibers is everywhere equal to or greater than the fiber minimum bend radius.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil et un procédé permettant de gérer une ou plusieurs lignes flexibles telles que des fibres optiques, chaque fibre possédant deux extrémités fixes. Des fibres optiques sont agencées selon une configuration en huit incurvé s'étendant en trois dimensions sur la surface d'enroulement incurvée extérieure d'une enveloppe tubulaire. La configuration est guidée par des pistes d'enroulement sur l'un ou l'autre côté extérieur de l'enveloppe. Les incurvations de l'enveloppe et des pistes d'enroulement sont telles que la courbure des fibres gérées est partout égale ou supérieure au rayon de courbure minimal des fibres.
