Abstract
(EN)
An optical connection identification assembly (201, 202) includes first and second connectors for conveying optical signals within and away from the optical connection identification assembly, first and second optical filters (224A, 224B) configured for conveying optical signals to and from the respective first and second connectors (110, 150) and between each other, and first and second photodiodes (226 A, 226B). The first photodiode is configured for receiving optical signals from the first optical filter to confirm the optical connection identification assembly is receiving optical signals. The second photodiode is configured for receiving optical signals from the second optical filter to confirm the optical connection identification assembly is receiving optical signals. The first and the second connectors are on opposite sides of each of the first and the second optical filters and each of the first and the second photodiodes. Multiple optical connection identification assemblies are used in a system to prepare a connectivity map of a fiber optic system.

Un ensemble d'identification de connexion optique (201, 202) comprend des premier et second connecteurs pour transporter des signaux optiques à l'intérieur de l'ensemble d'identification de connexion optique et les faire sortir de celui-ci, des premier et second filtres optiques (224A, 224B) configurés pour transporter des signaux optiques vers et depuis les premier et second connecteurs (110, 150) respectifs et entre eux, et des première et seconde photodiodes (226A, 226B). La première photodiode est configurée pour recevoir des signaux optiques provenant du premier filtre optique pour confirmer que l'ensemble d'identification de connexion optique reçoit des signaux optiques. La seconde photodiode est configurée pour recevoir des signaux optiques provenant du second filtre optique pour confirmer que l'ensemble d'identification de connexion optique reçoit des signaux optiques. Les premier et second connecteurs se trouvent sur des côtés opposés de chacun des premier et second filtres optiques et de chacune des première et seconde photodiodes. De multiples ensembles d'identification de connexion optique sont utilisés dans un système pour préparer une carte de connectivité d'un système à fibre optique.
