Die Erfindung betrifft eine Verteilereinrichtung für ankommen de und abgehende Lichtwellenleiter. The invention relates to a distributor device for de arrive and outgoing optical fibers.

Bekannte Verteilereinrichtungen für Lichtwellenleiter erfordern umfangreiche und platzaufwendige Konstruktionen. Known distribution devices for optical fibers require extensive and elaborate space constructions. So müssen die ankommenden und abgehenden Lichtwellenleiterkabel mit Lichtwel lenleiter-Endstücken, welche werksseitig mit Steckern versehen sind, aufwendig an Ort und Stelle verschweißt werden. So must the incoming and outgoing fiber optic cable with Lichtwel lenleiter-end pieces, which are factory-fitted with plugs, are elaborately welded in place. Dies er fordert nicht nur einen hohen Arbeitsaufwand bei der Montage, sondern erfordert aufgrund der großen Anzahl von Spleißkassetten für die einzelnen Fusionsspleiße einen enormen Platzbedarf. This he not only calls for a large amount of work in the assembly, but requires due to the large number of splice trays for each fusion splices an enormous amount of space.

Aufgabe der vorliegenden Erfindung ist es, eine Verteilerein richtung der eingangs genannten Art anzugeben, die am Montageort einfach aufzubauen ist und dabei nur einen geringen Platzbedarf benötigt. Object of the present invention is to provide a manifold clean direction of the aforementioned type which is easy to assemble at the assembly while taking up only a small footprint.

Diese Aufgabe wird bei einer Verteilereinrichtung für ankommen de und abgehende Lichtwellenleiter dadurch gelöst, daß die an kommenden und abgehenden Lichtwellenleiterkabel in Steckerkas setten enden, daß die Steckerkassetten an ihren Frontseiten mit Durchführungskupplungen versehen sind, und daß die Enden der ein zelnen Fasern der Lichtwellenleitekabel jeweils mit einem Licht wellenleiterstecker verbunden sind, wobei dieser Lichtwellenlei terstecker derart aufgebaut ist, daß in seinem Steckergehäuse ein Fingerspleiß fest angeordnet ist, dessen eine Anschlußseite aus dem Steckergehäuse herausragt und dessen andere innere An schlußseite über eine Lichtwellenleiterfaser mit dem Steckkon takt des Lichtwellenleitersteckers fest verbunden ist. This object will arrive at a distribution device for de and thereby dissolved outgoing optical waveguide, that the ends of cassettes to incoming and outgoing optical fiber cable in Steckerkas that the plug cartridges are provided at their front sides with implementing couplings, and that the ends of a individual fibers of the optical waveguide cable in each case with a light are fiber connector, wherein this Lichtwellenlei is terstecker constructed such that a Fingerspleiß, protrudes its one connection side of the connector housing in its connector housing fixedly arranged and the other inner at final page via an optical waveguide fiber having the Steckkon clock of the optical fiber connector is fixedly connected.

Da man mit einem Lichtwellenleiter-Fingerspleiß Lichtwellenlei ter ohne Werkzeug und Fremdenergie einfach und zeitsparend ver binden kann, müssen bei der erfindungsgemäßen Verteilereinrich tung die ankommenden und abgehenden Kabel lediglich mit den freien Anschlußseiten der Fingerspleiße verbunden werden. Since you can bind ver easily and quickly without tools and foreign energy with a fiber optic Fingerspleiß Lichtwellenlei ter must in the inventive Distribute Clean Rich, the incoming and outgoing cables tung only be connected to the free connection of the fingers splices. Auf diese Weise ist ein einfacher Anschluß der Lichtwellenleiterka bel möglich. In this way, a simple connection of the Lichtwellenleiterka is bel possible.

Weiterhin benötigt die Verteilereinrichtung gemäß der vorlie genden Erfindung einen geringen Platzbedarf, da die eigentli chen Spleißkassetten wegfallen. Furthermore, the distributor device requires a small space requirement in accordance with the vorlie constricting invention, since the eigentli chen splice omitted. Durch die Aufteilung der er findungsgemäßen Verteilereinrichtung auf mehrere Steckerkasset ten ist ein dem Leitungsbedarf entsprechender Aufbau möglich. th through the division of he inventive distribution device to multiple Steckerkasset a corresponding need the line structure is possible.

Eine zweckmäßige Ausgestaltung der erfindungsgemäßen Vertei lereinrichtung ist dadurch gekennzeichnet, daß die einzelnen Steckkassetten als geschlossene Gehäuse mit einer verriegelbaren Schublade ausgebildet sind. An expedient embodiment of the distri lereinrichtung the invention is characterized in that the individual plug-in cartridges are designed as a closed housing having a lockable drawer. Auf diese Weise wird ein mißbräuch licher Zugriff auf die Spleißstellen verhindert, da per Schlüs sel eine definierte Zugangsberechtigung des entsprechenden Per sonals ermöglicht wird. In this way a mißbräuch Licher access to the splice is prevented because a defined access authorization of the respective per sonals will allow per Keyring sel.

Eine andere zweckmäßige Ausgestaltung der Verteilereinrichtung gemäß der vorliegenden Erfindung besteht darin, daß innerhalb der Steckerkassetten Ablagevorrichtungen für die einzelnen Licht wellenleiter-Fasern vorgesehen sind. Another expedient embodiment of the distribution device according to the present invention is that waveguide fibers are provided within the connector cassette storage devices for each light. So sind auch nachträglich Belegungsänderungen der ankommenden und abgehenden Lichtwellen leiter möglich. So even subsequently changes in occupancy of the incoming and outgoing light waves are possible ladder.

Im folgenden wird die Erfindung anhand eines in der Zeichnung dargestellten Ausführungsbeispiels näher beschrieben. In the following the invention by way of illustrated in the drawings embodiment will be described in detail.

Es zeigen Show it

Fig. 1 einen senkrechten Längsschnitt durch eine Steckerkas sette einer Verteilereinrichtung gemäß der Erfindung, und Fig. 1 is a vertical longitudinal section through a Steckerkas sette of a distribution device according to the invention, and

Fig. 2 einen waagrechten Längsschnitt durch eine Steckerkas sette gemäß Fig. 1. Fig. 2 shows a horizontal longitudinal section through a Steckerkas sette of FIG. 1.

In der Zeichnung ist lediglich eine einzige Steckerkassette 1 einer Verteilereinrichtung gemäß der vorliegenden Erfindung ge zeigt. In the drawing, only a single connector cassette 1 a distribution device according to the present invention is ge shows. Die eigentliche Verteilereinrichtung kann jedoch aus be liebig vielen Steckerkassetten 1 bestehen, die entweder überein ander oder nebeneinander angeordnet sind. The actual distribution device can arbitrarily made many plug cassettes 1 arranged either match the other or side by side from be.

Die ankommenden und abgehenden Lichtwellenleiterkabel 2 werden auf der Rückseite der Steckerkassetten 1 durch Durchführungen 13 und über Zugentlastungen 12 ins Innere der Steckerkassetten ge führt. The incoming and outgoing optical fiber cable 2 are transferred to the back of the plug cassette 1 by passages 13 and strain relief 12 into the interior of the plug cassette ge. Dabei ist die Größe der Steckerkassetten ua abhängig von der Faseranzahl je Lichtwellenleiterkabel. The size of the plug cassette is also dependent on the number of fibers per fiber optic cable. Die einzelnen Lichtwellenleiterfasern 4 der Lichtwellenleiterkabel 2 werden in einer bestimmten Länge innerhalb der Ablagevorrichtung 10 abge legt, nach dem das Ende der Lichtwellenleiterfaser 4 mit dem Lichtwellenleiterstecker 5 verbunden worden ist. The individual optical fibers 4 of the optical fiber cable 2 are inserted abge in a certain length within the storage device 10, after the end of the optical fiber 4 has been connected to the optical waveguide plug. 5

Der Lichtwellenleiterstecker 5 besteht im wesentlichen aus dem Steckergehäuse 7 und dem Steckkontakt 8 . The optical waveguide plug 5 consists essentially of the connector housing 7 and the plug contact. 8 Mit dem Gehäuse 7 des Lichtwellenleitersteckers 5 ist ein Fingerspleiß 6 fest verbun den. With the housing 7 of the optical fiber connector 5 is a Fingerspleiß 6 is fixed-jointed. Mit einem Fingerspleiß kann man Lichtwellenleiter ohne Werkzeug und Fremdenergie einfach und zeitsparend montieren. With a Fingerspleiß can be mounted fiber optic easily and quickly without tools or external energy. Entsprechend dem Durchmesser der Fasern sind die Klemmstücke entsprechend abgestuft. Corresponding to the diameter of the fibers, the clamping pieces are graded accordingly. Im Gegensatz zu vielen anderen mecha nischen Verbindern erübrigt sich ein besonderes Präparieren der Faserenden. Unlike many other African mechanical connectors, a special preparation of the fiber ends is unnecessary. Es entfallen auch das Verkleben sowie das auf wendige Schleifen der Endflächen vollständig. It also eliminates the bonding and the fully manoeuvrable grinding the end faces. Die Faserenden werden mit einem Trenngerät auf Länge geschnitten und in den bereits werksseitig mit Immersion gefüllten Fingerspleiß ein geführt. The fiber ends are cut with a cutting device to length and performed in the factory-filled with an immersion Fingerspleiß. Nach dem Zuschieben der Klemmringe ergibt sich eine dauerhafte kraftschlüssige Verbindung der beiden Lichtwellenlei ter. After you slide the clamp rings a permanent positive connection of the two Lichtwellenlei results ter.

Bei dem hier dargestellten Lichtwellenleiterstecker 5 wird nun die innen liegende Anschlußseite des Fingerspleißes 6 mit einem Lichtwellenleiterende bestückt, wobei das andere Ende die ses Lichtwellenleiterendes mit dem Steckkontakt 8 bereits werks seitig fest verschweißt worden ist. In the illustrated optical fiber connector 5, the inner terminal side of the finger splice 6 is now equipped with an optical waveguide end, the other end of the ses optical fiber end has already been factory welded to each other firmly connected to the plug contact. 8 Aufgrund des integrierten Fingerspleißes 6 ist es also möglich den Lichtwellenleiterstek ker vor Ort ohne großen Aufwand leicht mit einem der ankommen den bzw abgehenden Lichtwellenleiterfasern zu verbinden. Due to the integrated finger splice 6, it is possible easily to connect the Lichtwellenleiterstek ker on site without much effort with one of the arriving or outgoing optical fibers.

In die Frontplatte der Steckerkassetten 1 sind Durchführungskupp lungen 3 eingelassen. In the front panel of the plug cassette 1 Durchführungskupp above rules 3 admitted. Diese Durchführungskupplungen 3 werden von innen mit den Lichtwellenleitersteckern 5 bestückt. These implementing couplings 3 are loaded from the inside with the light waveguide plugs. 5 Außerhalb der Steckerkassetten 1 werden die einzelnen Durchführungskupp lungen 3 mittels entsprechend aufgebauten Rangierleitungen - hier nicht dargestellt - entsprechend den Verteilungswünschen miteinander verbunden. Outside the connectors 1, the individual cartridges are Durchführungskupp lungs 3 by means of correspondingly constructed jumper lines - not shown here - connected to one another in accordance with the distribution requirements.

Um einen mißbräuchlichen Zugriff zu den einzelnen Spleißstellen zu verhindern, sind die einzelnen Steckerkassetten 1 als geschlos sene Gehäuse mit einer verriegelbaren Schublade 9 ausgebildet. In order to prevent fraudulent access to the individual splice sites, the individual plug cartridges 1 are formed as Totally enclosed housing having a lockable drawer. 9 Hierzu sind die Schubladen 9 mit in der Zeichnung angedeuteten Verriegelungen 11 versehen. To this end, the drawers are provided with indicated in the drawing locks 11. 9 Diese Verriegelungen 11 können mit tels eines passenden Schlüssels entriegelt werden. These locks 11 can be unlocked by means of a matching key.
