The design of a demountable connector system for data transmission in fibres presents conventional connector manufacturers with some unique problems. This is due to the extreme accuracy of alignment, both in a lateral and angular axis, which is needed for a low loss connection. All the design work and the various styles which the connector manufacturers have come up with can be reduced to three basic types which aim to overcome this problem and this paper discuss their various advantages and disadvantages:
