Title
(EN) FIBER OPTIC ASSEMBLY AND METHOD INCLUDING PIN SECTION(S) FOR RETAINING FIBER OPTIC CONNECTOR
(FR) ENSEMBLE FIBRE OPTIQUE ET PROCÉDÉ COMPRENANT UNE SECTION BROCHE (S) POUR RETENIR UN CONNECTEUR DE FIBRE OPTIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
Fiber optic assemblies and related fabrication methods include a retaining member having at least one pin section that is configured to extend through an opening defined in at least one side wall of a body structure, to permit the at least one pin section to cooperate with at least one feature of a fiber optic connector received in a cavity of the body structure to thereby retain the fiber optic connector in the cavity. Exemplary body structures include dust caps, adapters, patch panels, fiber optic modules, and the like.
(FR)
Des ensembles de fibres optiques et des procédés de fabrication associés comprennent un élément de retenue ayant au moins une section de broche qui est configurée pour s'étendre à travers une ouverture définie dans au moins une paroi latérale d'une structure de corps, pour permettre au moins une section de broche de coopérer avec au moins une caractéristique d'un connecteur de fibre optique reçu dans une cavité de la structure de corps pour ainsi retenir le connecteur de fibre optique dans la cavité. Des exemples de structures de corps comprennent des capuchons anti-poussière, des adaptateurs, des panneaux de raccordement, des modules de fibre optique, et similaire.
