Glass fiber-optic cables

Description

The fiber-optic cable is used for transmitting signals with the help of electromagnetic waves in the optical frequency range. Fiber-optic cables are recommended as an alternative to copper cables wherever there is severe electromagnetic interference, the equipotential bonding is to be saved, in open-air systems or where no electromagnetic radiation is wanted.

To construct optical network structures, glass fiber optic cables are used for longer paths, while plastic fiber optic cables are used for shorter paths. These plastic cables use light-conducting plastics such as polymer optic fiber (POF) or polymer cladded fiber (PCF).

Features

  • Rugged design for industrial applications indoors and outdoors.

  • High immunity to noise thanks to insensitivity to electro-magnetic fields

  • Tap-proof due to lack of radiation from the cable

  • Silicon-free, therefore suitable for use in the automotive industry (e.g. in paintshops)

  • Electrical isolation of PROFINET/Ethernet devices

  • Protection of the transmission route against electromagnetic interference

  • Certified for various applications, e.g for the American and Canadian market (UL listing such as OFN/OFNG for fiber-optic cables or CM/CMG for copper cables)

  • PROFINET-compatible

  • RoHS conformity

  • Free from varnish-moistening substances


Benefits

  • Simple laying with pre-assembled cables, without grounding problems and very light fiber-optic cables.

  • Various approvals
