Implementation of self-cleaning intelligence in fiber-optics connectivity by electrospinning of polymeric micro-fibers

TE Connectivity
Self-cleaning intelligence is implemented into the VECTOR connectivity system without impacting the total system's footprint. A membrane of polymeric fibers with a controlled diameter and density is deposited into the adaptor by electrospinning. The optical fiber is cleaned by puncturing the membrane. Material blends have been compared and additives that improve dust capture are evaluated. Endurance to outside plant conditions is assessed. Performance is evaluated by insertion loss measurements.
