Fischer Connectors (booth 3807) will highlight its rugged fibre-optic interconnects, a pre-cabled product designed for maximum link performance. The FiberOptic Series connectors are easy use, clean and maintain even in harsh environments, making them ideal for many demanding applications like energy, sensing, medical devices, defence and security, broadcast, telecom and transportation.
Fiber optic is the ideal solution to carry large amounts of data over long distances; however, fiber optics can also be used to gather information about the environment. This white paper presents the technical basics behind sensing over fiber technologies, its main applications and the cabling solutions involved. We will discuss the key factors that will help you define the best solution for your cabling needs, in order to have the most reliable and easy-to-maintain system that reduces your maintenance operations.
