Mobius Photonics has developed the Meight connector, a detachable optical fibre connector designed for precision power applications, such as pump light delivery and fibre coupling in commercial and industrial lasers. Meight connectors accommodate up to a few hundred watts of power via multimode fibres with core diameters from 50 microns to 1mm.
Meight connectors are keyed for consistent, repeatable coupling. A large-thread hex nut guides and fastens the connector in place to ensure a secure, reliable mechanical connection. Meight connectors can be used to fibre couple through a sealed bulkhead and are capable of being de-coupled without breaking the bulkhead seal. Bulkhead interfaces are available to connect Meight to Meight, Meight to SMA, as well as launch between Meight and free space.
