Title
(EN) FIBER OPTIC CABLE EXTERNAL SHIELD CONNECTOR
(FR) CONNECTEUR DE PROTECTION EXTERNE DE CÂBLE À FIBRE OPTIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A fiber optic external shield connector for grounding a fiber optic cable. The external shield connector is irreversibly mounted to the fiber optic cable using traditional tools. Prongs on the inside of the shield connector puncture the outer non-conductive sheath of the fiber optic cable. The external shield connector is compatible with fiber optics cables having different diameters. The prongs are arranged to complement the geometry of the fiber optic cables for the specific application. The prongs contact an inner conductive sheath of the cable and connect the conductive sheath electrically to an outside ground. This engagement does not expose the internal portions of the fiber optic cable to outside elements such as moisture.

L'invention concerne un connecteur de protection externe de fibre optique destiné à mettre à la terre un câble à fibre optique. Le connecteur de protection externe est monté de façon irréversible sur le câble à fibre optique à l'aide d'outils conventionnels. Des ergots situés sur l'intérieur du connecteur de protection perforent la gaine extérieure non conductrice du câble à fibre optique. Le connecteur de protection externe est compatible avec des câbles à fibres optiques de différents diamètres. Les ergots sont disposés de façon à compléter la géométrie des câbles à fibres optiques pour l'application particulière considérée. Les ergots entrent en contact avec une gaine intérieure conductrice du câble et relient la gaine conductrice électriquement à une terre extérieure. Cette interaction n'expose pas les parties internes du câble à fibre optique à des éléments extérieurs comme l'humidité.
