Applications

 

Firecomms fiber optical transceiver products with Plastic Optical or Plastic Clad Fiber (POF/PCS) links offer many advantages in a range of applications, from industrial automation to transportation and home networking:

  • EMI/RFI immunity ideal for industrial, harsh, noisy environments
  • Galvanic isolation between transmitter and receiver
  • Visible spectrum operation enables eye-safe, fast troubleshooting
  • Low power consumption, transmitters capable of operation at 3-4mA
  • Durable, flexible and lightweight
  • Resilient to bending and vibrations
  • High reliability for extended machine uptime
  • Industrial temperature in range of -40 to +85°C
  • Reduced maintenance cycle time provides up to a 20-year lifecycle on transceivers and cables
  • Simplified field installation for easy termination of large core optical fibers in custom distances
