Title: FIBER OPTIC CONNECTOR ADAPTER WITH SHUTTER HAVING SELECTIVE WAVELENGTH TRANSPARENCY
Abstract:
An optical fiber adapter for supporting a non-collimated laser light source transmitting a laser light with a first signal wavelength. The optical fiber adapter includes an infrared signal transmitter for transmitting an infrared signal, and an infrared signal receiver for receiving the infrared signal. The infrared signal includes a second signal wavelength. The optical fiber adapter also includes a movable shutter door intersecting the infrared signal in a shutter closed position. The shutter door includes a material that is adapted to pass the infrared signal therethrough when in the shutter closed position. The shutter door includes a material that is adapted to block the first signal wavelength therethrough when in the shutter closed position. The shutter door is positioned distally from the non-collimated laser light source a distance by which the laser light attenuates to not transmit through the shutter door in the shutter closed position. The shutter is movable to a shutter open position to not block the laser light source transmitting the laser light with the first signal wavelength.
