200/230 PolyClad Optical Fibre

Polymicro Technologies, a subsidiary of Molex, has successfully developed an optical fibre comprising a low -OH synthetic fused silica core, PolyClad hard polymer clad and ETFE buffer/jacket. Featuring high tensile strength and minimal bend radius for high reliability, Polymicro’s 200/230 PolyClad Optical Fibre accommodates short-to-medium distance data communications in factory automation and process control applications and withstands harsh temperature, chemical and radiation environments.
