Abstract : An in-line fiber optic connector has a pair of ferruled components having ferrules enclosing optical fibers. The optical fibers are connected by placing the faces of said ferrules in abutment with each other inside a split tube. Threaded components that abut the ferruled components bring the faces of the ferrules together by being threaded to each other. This enables the compression between the faces of the ferrules to be closely controlled.
