【0018】 [0018]
図1および図2に示すように、光通信用パッケージは、シェルフ(図示せず)と、メイン基板(プリント基板)1と、可動基板(可動部)2と、光コネクタ5とを備える。 As shown in FIGS. 1 and 2, the optical communications package includes a shelf (not shown), and 1 main board (printed circuit board), a movable substrate (movable part) 2, an optical connector 5.
【0019】 [0019]
メイン基板1は、シェルフに収容され、コネクタ9で装置(シェルフ)と接続される。 The main substrate 1 is accommodated in the shelf and is connected to the device (shelf) in the connector 9. また、メイン基板1は、前方に前面パネル3を有する。 The main board 1 has a front panel 3 forward.
【0020】 [0020]
可動基板2は、メイン基板1と隣り合う位置に設置され、図1に示す例ではメイン基板1と同等の大きさを有する。 Movable substrate 2 is installed at a position adjacent to the main substrate 1, having a comparable size and the main substrate 1 in the example shown in FIG. この可動基板2は、レール8を介してメイン基板1と接続され、メイン基板1に対してスライド可動にシェルフに収容される。 The movable substrate 2 is connected to the main substrate 1 via the rail 8, it is accommodated in the shelf on the slide movable relative to the main substrate 1.
【0021】 [0021]
上記可動基板2も、前面パネル4を有する。 The movable substrate 2 also has a front panel 4. 前面パネル4は、図1に示す例では、メイン基板1と可動基板2とをともにシェルフに収納した状態においてメイン基板1の前面パネル3と並んだ位置にあり、可動基板2から側方に立ち上がる壁部で構成され、光ファイバ7を導出するための開口を有する。 Front panel 4, in the example shown in FIG. 1, in a position aligned with the front panel 3 of the main substrate 1 in a state where the housing and the main substrate 1 and the movable substrate 2 together in the shelf, rises laterally from the movable substrate 2 It consists of the wall portion has an opening for leading the optical fiber 7.
【0022】 [0022]
上記の前面パネル4は、光コネクタ5と対向するように設けられ、光コネクタ5からの光がシェルフから外部へ放出されるのを遮る遮蔽部として機能する。 Front panel 4 above is provided so as to face the optical connector 5, the light from the optical connector 5 serves as a shielding part for blocking from being released from the shelf to the outside. したがって、前面パネル4の側方への突出高さは、図1に示す例では左右方向における光コネクタ5の積層高さ以上であることが好ましい。 Accordingly, the protruding height of the side of the front panel 4 is preferably in the example shown in FIG. 1 is at least stack height of the optical connector 5 in the lateral direction.
【0023】 [0023]
なお、光コネクタ5からの光がシェルフから外部へ放出されるのを抑制することができるものであれば、前面パネル4をはじめとする遮蔽部の形状や高さや数は任意に設定可能である。 Incidentally, as long as it can be light from the optical connector 5 is prevented from being released from the shelf to the outside, the shape and the height and number of shielding portions including the front panel 4 can be arbitrarily set .
【0024】 [0024]
光コネクタ5は、可動基板2に複数取付けられ、この光コネクタ5に外部からの光コネクタ6が接続される。 The optical connector 5 is attached plurality of movable substrate 2, an optical connector 6 from the outside to the optical connector 5 is connected. 図1に示す例では、光コネクタ5は、可動基板2の側面から立ち上がる壁部に2列に取り付けられ、上下方向に多数配列されている。 In the example shown in FIG. 1, the optical connector 5 is mounted in two rows on the wall portions raised from the side surface of the movable substrate 2 are arrayed in the vertical direction.
【0025】 [0025]
可動基板2は図2に示すように前後方向に摺動可能であるので、光コネクタ5は、可動基板2の可動方向に対し垂直方向に並ぶように配列されることとなる。 Since the movable substrate 2 is slidable in the longitudinal direction as shown in FIG. 2, the optical connector 5, so that the relative moving direction of the movable substrate 2 is arranged so as to be aligned in the vertical direction. それにより、多くの光コネクタ5を可動基板2に設置することができる。 Thereby, it is possible to install a number of optical connector 5 on the movable substrate 2.
【0026】 [0026]
上記の構造を有する光通信用パッケージにおいて光コネクタ6を光コネクタ5に対し挿抜する際には、まず図2に示すように可動基板2を前方に引き出す。 When inserting and removing an optical connector 6 to the optical connector 5 in the optical communications package having the above structure, first draw forward the movable substrate 2 as shown in FIG. そしてこの状態で、光ファイバ7と接続される光コネクタ6を光コネクタ5に対し挿抜する。 In this state, the insertion of the optical connector 6 connected to the optical fiber 7 to the optical connector 5. このとき、光コネクタ5から放出される光は前面パネル4で遮蔽され、この光は前面パネル4より外に出てくることはない。 At this time, the light emitted from the optical connector 5 is shielded by the front panel 4, the light does not come out to the outside from the front panel 4.
【0027】 [0027]
また、可動基板2のスライド方向と異なる直角方向(たとえば図1の上下方向や左右方向)に光コネクタ5を並べることにより、少ないスライド量でも多くの光コネクタ6を挿抜することができる。 Further, by arranging the optical connector 5 in the sliding direction different from perpendicular direction of the movable substrate 2 (e.g. vertical or horizontal direction in FIG. 1), it can be inserted and removed many optical connectors 6 even with a small sliding amount. したがって、活線状態で多くの光コネクタ6を挿抜することが可能となる。 Therefore, it is possible to insert and remove a number of optical connectors 6 live circuit.
