AMS Technologies offers a wide range of mating sleeves and adapters available from stock. These components allow reliable connection of optical fiber cables terminated with FC/PC, FC/APC, ST/PC, SC/PC, SC/APC, LC/PC, LC/APC or SMA905 optical fiber connectors.
The mating sleeves and adapters available from our inventory provide female connectors of the same connector type on both sides, but we also offer hybrid solutions for mating different connector types as well as that connect female to male connectors with a short length of fiber within the device.
Within our portfolio of mating sleeves and adapters available from stock you can filter by adapter type (FC/APC, FC/PC, LC/APC, LC/PC, etc.), sleeve material, colour (of plastic adapters), shape (D-shape, DD-shape, oval, round or square adapters) or single mode (SM), polarization maintaining (PM) or multi mode (MM) application to select the right mating sleeve or adapter for your application.
In addition to mating sleeves and adapters for single connectors, the AMS Technologies portfolio also includes duplex and even quad types as well as adapters for connecting bare fibers on one end with fiber connectors on the other end. Bulkhead receptacles can be used to connect fiber patch cables to an opening in order to project light from an optical fiber into free space.
AMS Technologies carries a broad range of optical fiber patch cables, bundles and assemblies that can be ordered form stock or custom made to your requirements using single mode (SM), multi mode (MM) or polarization maintaining (PM) optical fibers.
We provide a broad portfolio of for single mode (SM), multi mode (MM) and polarization maintaining (PM) optical fibers. These connector kits are completed with a range of fiber connector parts as well as a large array of cleaning tools.
AMS Technologies can also offer an end-to-end solution for the assembly and test of optical connectors that is exactly tailored to your requirements. In our broad portfolio you can find tools for stripping and cleaving your fibers, gluing and curing the fiber into the connector, polishing, and finally testing your connector with microscopes, interferometers as well as handheld and automated test equipment measuring return loss.
Choose from our assembly and test equipment portfolio that ranges from manual tools for small batches to fully automated systems for high-volume manufacturing environments.
Mating sleeves or adapters are two-sided, mostly female fiber optic connectors that couple two (mostly male) fiber connectors together, with fiber optic alignment as the highest priority. Mating sleeves ensure a firm, uninterrupted physical contact between two optical fiber cables with connectors and provide reliable and robust centering of the two fiber cores (single mode (SM), multi mode (MM) or polarisation maintaining (PM)) to each other. Depending on the connector type, the fiber ends are brought into contact or the mating sleeve provides a defined air gap between them.
Most mating sleeves or adapters allow the connection of two connectors of the same type, but hybrid mating sleeves are suitable for accommodating different connector types on the two sides. This also allows transitions to be made between optical fibers of different types, such as SM, MM or PM fibers.
In addition to simplex single versions, versions with duplex or quad structures are also available.
