Optical waveguide connector

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #7648285.

An optical waveguide connecter includes a socket part having a first waveguide contact placed in a channel of the socket part, and a plug part with a second waveguide contact placed in a channel of the plug part. The plug part channel is sealed with a piston displaceable counter to the force of a spring. The socket part has a pivotable cap for sealing an interface surface of the first waveguide contact. The plug part has a path for receiving the piston, with a section of the path being inclined to the axis of the second waveguide contact. During a plugging process, the cap displaced the spring-loaded piston, frees the first waveguide contact of socket part, frees the second waveguide contact in the plug part channel and is guided through the path.
