1.What is Waterproof Fiber Optic Connectors

Waterproof fiber optic connectors consist of two main components:

  • Flanges
  • End connectors.

Line-end connectors consist of a housing that houses the fiber and a connector that connects the fiber.

The wire end connector includes a pluggable inner shell. Both the optical fiber and the connector are cylindrical, and the outer shell is also cylindrical to connect to the inner shell.

The inner housing is placed within the outer housing, and the optical fibers and connectors are positioned within the outer housing.

  • The inner shell: composed of a main body and a waterproof tail clip installed at the rear end of the main body.
  • The waterproof end clip: made of elastic material through which the optical fiber passes.

The front end of the main body of the inner shell press against the first protruding part to ensure tight connection and waterproof. The end of the body of the inner casing against the first bump on.

3. What is IP Rating of Connector

 Ingress Protection (IP) is a standard that defines how well a device can protect from solid items and liquids.

The first number in an IP rating denotes the level of protection against solids (such as dust, dirt and dampness), while the second number denotes the level of protection against liquids.

The table below outlines the solid and liquid protective capabilities of each IP level.
