Optical Connector

A demountable device for attaching a cabled or uncabled optical Fiber to another, or to an Active Device such as a transmitter. Note 1: A Connector is distinguished by the fact that it may be disconnected and reconnected, as opposed to a splice, which permanently joins two fibers. Note 2: Optical connectors are sometimes erroneously referred to as "couplers." Such usage is incorrect and is to be avoided.
