【0017】光コネクタの結合に際しては図4(A)に示すように、突出したガイドピン13の先端部を従来と同様の光ファイバ軸方向に貫通するガイドピン穴18を有する光コネクタ17の当該ガイドピン穴18に挿入することで結合し、多芯光ファイバの光結合を行うようにしている。 [0017] As upon binding of an optical connector is shown in FIG. 4 (A), the optical connector 17 having the guide pin holes 18 extending through the distal end of the projecting guide pins 13 in a conventional manner of the optical fiber axis direction attached by inserting the guide pin holes 18, and to perform the optical coupling of the multi-core optical fiber.

【0018】また、光コネクタの着脱に際してはガイドピン13のくびれ部13aはクランパ15によって把持されているので、光コネクタのみが外れ、ガイドピン1 Further, since the attaching and detaching of the optical connector is constricted portion 13a of the guide pin 13 is gripped by the clamper 15, only the optical connector is disengaged, the guide pin 1
3の脱落がない。 No 3 of falling off.

【0019】一方、フェルール前端面11aの清拭を行う際には、ピン引抜治具19を用いてガイドピン13を着脱してから行うようにすればよい。 Meanwhile, when performing the wiping of the ferrule front end face 11a is a pin extraction tool 19 may be performed after detaching the guide pin 13 with. 尚、ピン把持力は100gf〜1000gfとするのが好ましい。 The pin holding force is preferably a 100Gf~1000gf.

【0020】本実施例に用いたクランパ15は、係止片16cが弾性変形自在とするうよう合成樹脂等としていると共に、ガイドピン13のくびれ部13aの径を小としていることにより、クランパ15の挿入穴16aの穴径と穴ピッチを高精度にしなくてもガイドピン13に応力を受けずに済んでいる。 The clamper 15 used in this embodiment, by engaging piece 16c along with trying as synthetic resin or the like and elastically deformable, and a small diameter of the constricted portion 13a of the guide pin 13, the clamper 15 without the hole diameter and hole pitch of the insertion hole 16a with high accuracy it has been finished without being stress on the guide pin 13.

【0021】次に他のクランパの一例を図5を用いて説明する。 [0021] will be described with reference to FIG. 5 an example of another clamper. 同図に示すようにクランパ25は一対の相対向するクリップ部25a,25bを2ケ所設けており、その材質を金属性としている。 Clamper 25 as shown in the figure clip portion 25a opposed pair of phases, are provided two positions to 25b, is the material as the metallic. そしてクリップ部25a, And the clip portion 25a,
25bの間に形成されるスリット部26にガイドピン1 Guide the slit 26 formed between 25b pin 1
3の係止部であるくびれ部13aを挿入し、把持固定するようにしている。 3 Insert the constricted portion 13a is engaging portion, so as to grip fixed. ピンの着脱は前述と同様にピン引抜治具を用いればよい。 Removable pins may be used in the same way as described above the pin extraction jig.

【0022】このクランパはスリット部26によりガイドピン13の先端部を挿入するためのガイドピン穴の形成を略すると共にその穴ピッチの精度を不用にしている。 [0022] The clamper is the unnecessary precision of the hole pitch with abbreviated formation of the guide pin hole for inserting the tip of the guide pin 13 by the slits 26.

【0023】本発明に係る光コネクタは従来と同様、他の光コネクタの結合を図6に示したクリップ7を用いて保持してもよいし、又、例えばプッシュオン型のハウジング内に本部材を組込むようにしてもよい。 The optical connector according to the present invention similar to the prior art, may be held with a clip 7 showing a combination of another optical connector in Fig. 6, also for example a push-on type present member within the housing of the it may be incorporate.

【0024】 [0024]

【発明の効果】以上、実施例と共に説明したように本発明に係る光コネクタはその着脱に際し、光コネクタ同士の位置決めを行うガイドピンの脱落がないので、着脱回数が頻繁な箇所、例えば光コネクタ測定及び光コネクタ切替装置などに用いて好適である。 Effect of the Invention above, when the optical connector is attached and detached according to the present invention as described with examples, since there is no falling off of the guide pins for positioning between the optical connector, detachable times frequent places, for example, an optical connector it is suitable for use in such measurements and optical connector switching device. また、多芯光コネクタで高所及び暗所における作業時にガイドピンの紛失を避けることができる。 Further, in the multi-core optical connectors can not lost the guide pins when working in high places and dark.
