(FR) ENSEMBLES MULTIPORT COMPRENANT DES ÉLÉMENTS DE MONTAGE OU DES BOUCHONS ANTI-POUSSIÈRE
Abstract
(EN)
Multiport assemblies comprising one or more optical ports for receiving an external optical fiber connector for making an optical connection along with useful mounting features for securing the multiport assembly are disclosed. The multiport assembly comprises a mounting member having an aperture and a standoff that is coupled to a shell. The standoff extends outward from a lower surface of the shell to allow easy mounting to irregular surfaces. In another embodiment, the multiport assembly may comprise a second mounting member with an aperture and standoff that is received in a rear shell aperture to inhibit damage to the multiport assembly if a fastener is over-tightened during mounting. In further embodiments, the multiport assembly may comprise a dust plug having a locking feature and a keying port that is received in an optical port for inhibiting dirt, dust or debris from entering when the optical port is not in use.

L'invention concerne des ensembles multiport comprenant un ou plusieurs ports optiques pour recevoir un connecteur de fibre optique externe pour réaliser une connexion optique avec des caractéristiques de montage utiles pour fixer l'ensemble multiport. L'ensemble multiport comprend un élément de montage ayant une ouverture et une entretoise étant couplée à une coque. L'entretoise s'étend vers l'extérieur à partir d'une surface inférieure de la coque pour permettre un montage facile sur des surfaces irrégulières. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, l'ensemble multiport peut comprendre un second élément de montage ayant une ouverture et une entretoise étant reçue dans une ouverture de coque arrière pour empêcher un endommagement de l'ensemble multiport si un élément de fixation est surtendu pendant le montage. Dans d'autres modes de réalisation, l'ensemble multiport peut comprendre un bouchon anti-poussière ayant un élément de verrouillage et un orifice pour connecteur étant reçu dans un orifice optique pour empêcher la saleté, la poussière ou les débris de pénétrer lorsque le port optique n'est pas utilisé.
