OMC offers complete package of polymer fibre cables, components and assemblies

17 MAY 2012

OMC can now deliver a full range of polymer fibre optic components and assemblies to ensure cost-effective, secure and interference-free data transmission. Ideally applicable in factories, machinery and other industrial applications over distances ranging from a metre to 50 metres, polymer fibre has not found the wide acceptance it might have done due to limited availability of high quality, versatile connectors and a general lack of expertise in assembling the connectors onto polymer fibre. OMC addresses both these challenges with its own extensive component range, a thorough understanding of polymer fibre and a long-established excellence in producing complete data link assemblies. The emphasis with polymer fibre has all too often been to lower the cost of a system rather than exploit the technology’s major benefits of versatility, ruggedness and reliability. To address this, OMC’s connector range includes, in addition to well-designed, low-cost plastic moulded devices, a wide range of industry standard connector types such as SMA and ST, produced in rugged all-metal housings capable of providing reliable and consistent performance in industrial and even harsh or hazardous environments. OMC’s optical transmitter and receiver modules are actively alignedto achieve optimal performance for any particular system, and the company can manufacture their entire transmitter and receiver range to customer-specific requirements, attaining launch powers and sensitivities within tightly-specified windows.
