Diamond SA’s unique method for identifying sections of optical fiber by integrating a series of Fiber Bragg gratings.
POF is the ideal medium for data transmission in the EMI-heavy environments of medical scanners.
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.
In addition to high-speed data links that are unaffected by electromagnetic fields, fiber optics are an important component of various medical sensors and instruments. Image: Andy G / Flickr (source) (CC BY-SA 2.0)
