Fiber Optics for Potentially Damaging Environments
Single fiber assemblies are available with two choices of chemical resistant, non-magnetic sheathing to fit customers’ needs. For general purpose use, Fiberguide’s furcation tubing is comprised of a Kevlar reinforced PVC sleeve over a polypropylene tube. Furcation tubing is non-conductive and protects fibers with a liquid-tight seal.
For more specialized applications, Fiberguide offers stainless steel monocoil sheathing. The monocoil is vacuum compatible and resistant to tight bending, crushing, cutting, kinking, and high temperatures.
Both standard cable designs are rated for use at ambient temperatures. Single fiber assemblies are available with core sizes ranging from 50 to 1,000 µ and wavelengths from deep UV (DUV) to UV-VIS and VIS-IR. Assemblies are also available upon request with ST and FC connectors, numerical apertures of 0.12 and 0.26, and continuous lengths up to 50 meters.
