Small plastic molded singlemode ten-fiber connector has been developed for high-count optical subscriber cables. The connector ferrule alignment mechanism is designed with a sufficient factor of safety which allows rough handling during connection operation. The ferrules are precisely aligned by alignment pins and guide sleeve. The fabricated ten-fiber connector, which has a small section of 4 x 6 mm, exhibited an average loss of 0.4 dB and reconnection time of less than 0.5 min. Connection loss does not change after over 1000 times of reconnection.
