Industrial Fiber Optics’ low-cost, medium frequency POF fiber optic devices


Industrial Fiber Optics produces a wide variety of low-cost, medium frequency fiber optic devices for use with plastic fiber cable. Each device consists of a PBT housing and cinch nut with an internal active element such as an LED or photodetector. The PBT housing holds the active element and optimizes the physical connection between the optical fiber and the active component. The cinch nut holds the fiber in place without requiring the expense and labor of a fiber connection or termination.

These devices are designed for use with industry-common 1.0mm or 1000µm core plastic optical fiber. The actual construction of a typical fiber cable is a PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) core, thin fluorinated polymer cladding layer and an additional layer called the jacket, which results in an overall diameter of 2.2mm. Jacket material varies with application with polyethylene the most common.

LED's and Photodetectors
Industrial Fiber Optics' devices are unique because they require no fiber connection or polishing procedure on the fiber end. No connection means reduced cost as a user. To prepare a fiber, simply use a sharp knife or razor blade to cut the fiber squarely.
