Abstract

A small plastic molded single-mode ten-fiber connector has been developed for high-count optical subscriber cables. The connector ferrule alignment mechanism is designed with a sufficient factor of safety to allow rough handling during connection. The ferrules are precisely aligned by alignment pins and guide sleeve. The fabricated connector, which has a cross section of just 4 mm multiplied by 6 mm, exhibited an average loss of 0. 4 dB and reconnection time of less than 0. 5 min. Connection loss does not change after over 1000 reconnections.
