Title:
FIBER OPTIC CONNECTOR AND METHOD OF ASSEMBLING THE SAME
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2015/121791
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
The present invention discloses a fiber optic connector comprising a housing, a spring (500), a ferrule assembly (100, 200) and a crimping seat (300). Before being inserted into the housing, the ferrule assembly is pre-assembled into the crimping seat in a manner of being movable relative to the crimping seat. The spring is pre- assembled into the housing before the ferrule assembly is inserted into the housing. After the pre-assembled ferrule assembly and crimping seat are inserted into the housing, the crimping seat is snap- fitted in the housing, and the spring pushes the ferrule assembly, so that the ferrule assembly is capable of being moved against the spring relative to the crimping seat. Before inserted into a housing of the fiber optic connector, some components may be pre-assembled together to form an integral assembly having a size less than that of a housing of the fiber optic connector. Accordingly, the integral assembly may be smoothly pulled through a small long pipe. After pulled through the pipe, the integral assembly may be easily and quickly inserted into the housing as a whole at one time.
