Title: FERRULE ASSEMBLY FOR A FIBER OPTIC CONNECTOR
Abstract:
A ferrule assembly for a fiber optic connector includes a ferrule having a first portion defining a front end face and a second portion defining a shoulder offset from the front end face in a longitudinal direction. The ferrule assembly also includes a pin retainer received over the first portion of the ferrule and at least one guide pin projecting from a first surface of the pin retainer. The pin retainer can be removed from the ferrule, rotated to a reverse orientation, and re-installed on the ferrule to switch the ferrule assembly from a male configuration to a female configuration.
