Serial Real-time Communications System (SERCOS) is an international standard for high-speed motion control networking.
Plastic optical fiber is able to withstand extreme ranges of operating temperatures.
Electrical-to-optical converter for Fast Ethernet networks using 4B5B coding schemes. Part FF-FB1M2SFPRA.
When a plastic optical fiber undergoes a physical change, such as bending, the light passing through it undergoes changes that are detectable, allowing it to be used as a sensor.
FiberFin fully supports the Broadcom Versatile Link family of connectors and compatible POF accessories.
FiberFin produces SMA cable assemblies to SERCOS specifications using OEM connectors and Mitsubishi Eska® GHCP or GHTT plastic optical fiber.
Industrial networks have taken advantage of the properties of plastic optical fiber for decades, using IEEE 1394, Ethernet/IP, and other networking standards.
