Resumen:
Una empresa polaca que suministra productos a fabricantes de equipos militares ha desarrollado conectores de haz expandido para sistemas de fibra óptica. Entre sus ventajas cabe destacar la alta resistencia a la suciedad, polvo y arena, impermeabilidad, ausencia de contacto mecánico entre las partes ópticas y ausencia de riesgo de impacto mecánico. El mayor diámetro del haz de luz permite que el sistema sea menos sensible a las partículas y elementos del haz de transmisión. La empresa busca socios industriales interesados en continuar con el desarrollo y centros de investigación y empresas para probar nuevas aplicaciones o adaptar la tecnología a necesidades específicas.

Tittle:
Fiber optic systems - Expanded beam connectors
Summary:
A Polish medium size company has developed a expanded beam connectors for fiber optic systems. Advantages: high resistance to dirt, dust and sand, water tight, no mechanical contact between optical parts, no risk of mechanical impact. The company is looking for industrial partners interested in further development and in research institutes and companies for testing new applications or for adaptation to specific needs.
Description:
A Polish medium size company direct supplier to the army and the military equipment producers has developed a expanded beam connectors for fiber optic systems. The expanded beam connectors transmit the light beam out of the polished fibre head into the lens which expand the standard, small diameter beam into the much larger, parallel beam with the diameter of 0.4 - 1.2 mm.

After being transmitted through the air, the expanded beam reaches another lens of the other part of the connector, that focuses the expanded beam into the standard, small diameter beam. There are some types of expanded beam connectors that uses glass flat windows to protect the lenses and keep the transmission line clean. Advantages: high resistance to dirt, dust and sand, water tight, easy cleaning, no mechanical contact between optical parts, no risk of mechanical impact, long life-cycle (large number of mating cycles), hermaphroditic features. The company is looking for industrial partners interested in further development and in research institutes and companies for testing of new applications and thanks to design department (disposal of highly skilled team of engineers, specializing at electronics and mechanics) also to adaptation to specific partners needs.


Advantages and Innovations:

Thanks to the specific design of the connector, it is possible to reach the following features:
a) No physical contact between the optical parts, whch makes the connector extremely durable against the dust, dirt and sand which can get inside the connector.
b) Larger diameter of the light beam makes the whole system less sensitive to the particles and element within the transmission beam (the same particles which at the normal diameter (50 or 62.5 µm) could stop or dramatically attenuate the signal, have no impact on the beam of the diameted up to 1.2mm.
c) Higher tolerance to the distance between the polished heads of the fibres, so critica parameter in the physical contact connectors. Expanded beam connectors are able to carry transmission even if not fully tight and locked.
