Self cleaning fiber optic connector using a gel filled shutter

TE Connectivity
A shutter filled with a silicone gel provides eye protection and protection against outside plant influences (dust, weathering) in the VECTOR connector system. Mixture DOE's were performed to find the most appropriate gel material. Optimal formulations were dispensed in the shutter cap and installed plugs were subjected to dust testing, high temperature/high humidity and high power testing. The effect on the optical losses after mating was evaluated by optical measurements.
