Abstract available in
This article is a combined pluggable optical transceiver and latch-release sleeve, used for optical communication, and including an optical transmitter and an optical receiver that are integrally formed. The combined pluggable optical transceiver and latch-release sleeve has a latch mechanism that is plugged to a network apparatus to serve as a retainer when this article is installed on the network apparatus. The latch mechanism connected to a latch-release sleeve can be released by pulling the latch-release sleeve to the forward direction, so that this article can be detached from the network apparatus. Respective corners of the latch-release sleeve are formed to have a round shape, so that the latch-release sleeve can be easily hold along omni-direction, namely, vertical and horizontal directions. Upper and lower surfaces of the latch-release sleeve that are often held by a user are provided with plural grooves with a constant pitch to prevent the user's fingers from being slipped. Further, a height of the latch-release sleeve is slowly increased from a main body side to a front side thereof, such that a holding force can be easily transmitted to the latch mechanism. Still further, the latch-release sleeve is provided with a stopper for limiting a front position thereof with respect to an optical transceiver housing, to avoid an application of an excessive force being to the latch mechanism.
