(FR) CONNECTEURS OPTIQUES À FACTEUR DE FORME ULTRA-PETIT AVEC CHANGEMENT DE POLARITÉ ET PROCÉDÉ D'UTILISATION
Abstract
(EN)
An optical connector holding two or more LC-type optical ferrules is provided. The optical connector includes an outer housing, ferrules, a cable boot and one or more polarity keys. The keys are configured to change connector polarity from a first to a second polarity. A corresponding adapter with one or more slots within an adapter wall on opposing sides sized and shaped to accept a single or dual keyed polarity changeable connector.

La présente invention concerne un connecteur optique comprenant au moins deux ferrules optiques de type LC. Le connecteur optique comprend un boîtier externe, des ferrules, un manchon de câble et une ou plusieurs clés de polarisation. Les clés sont configurées pour changer la polarité du connecteur d'une première à une seconde polarité. L'invention comprend un adaptateur correspondant avec une ou plusieurs fentes à l'intérieur d'une paroi d'adaptateur sur des côtés opposés, dimensionnées et formées pour accepter un connecteur à polarité modifiable à clé simple ou double.
