Fiber optic connectors and adapters may be automatically secured and released via a management system. Such automation may inhibit accidental and/or unauthorized insertion of fiber optic connectors into adapter ports. The automation also may inhibit accidental and/or unauthorized removal of the fiber optic connectors from the adapter ports.

An intelligent connector is disclosed having a signal processing unit, a first port, and a second port. The signal processing unit communicates signals between a bus and a slave module. The first port is coupled between the bus and the signal processing unit, and is connected to a power supply line. The second port is coupled between the signal processing unit and the slave module, and is positioned to provide a power supply to the slave module.

An electric connector, comprising: a housing, an insulation body received in the housing, and a plurality of terminals held in a plurality of slots of the insulation body. The insulation body comprises a first half body and a second half body separate from the first half body The first half body and the second half body are configured to be detachably assembled together. Therefore, when connecting cables in field, the insulation body may be separated into the first half body and the second half body first. Then the cables may be connected to the terminals held in the first half body and the second half body. The first half body and the second half body may be assembled together after the cables are connected. Using such a detachable insulation body provides larger operation space, thus easing connecting the cables to the terminals in the field.

SuMMiT brings value to Europe by demonstration of large lightweight PV modules with record power output, lowest installation cost, lowest PV system cost and lowest carbon footprint in a secure way, i.e. certified performance, quality and durability, protected by patents and proprietary knowhow. SuMMiT combines and demonstrates three step-change innovations: 1. COSMOS PV module design, i.e. a large lightweight hybrid subassembly structure; 2.Highly efficient, long-lasting, top quality, single glass PV laminate; 3.Smart module power management. The demonstration is twofold. The manufacturability of the novel PV module concept will be demonstrated as well as simplicity of installation and utilization, applicability, performance and durability in 5 to 6 field demonstrations. The consortium brings together the required critical mass in polymer technology and polymer processing, encapsulant technology, smart electronics, world class high performance PV module technology and production capacity as well as one of the Europes leading turn-key PV system installation companies with subsidiaries all over the world.
