Abstract : The patent concerns a connector for coupling fiber optic cables having a terminal with a bore surface into which the bared ends of the fibers are compressed and secured. The terminal is housed in an outer coupling ferrule which is adapted to be detachably connected to a mating ferrule of a splice connector or to a terminal board or the like. Resilient means are longitudinally positioned between the respective terminal and its ferrule to bias the terminal in a face-to-face relationship to an adjoining cable end. An aligning means is provided to axially position the two cable ends to ensure maximum light transmission.
