Press Releases

PI (Physik Instrumente), a provider of precision alignment and motion-control equipment for photonics, nanotechnology and semiconductor applications, is offering a high-precision automated fibre alignment system with a controller and software.

The company says the new H-206 alignment system can align fibres, collimators, fibre bundles and arrays quickly and efficiently.

Anritsu has launched its new Fibre Visualizer tool. 

The company says that, as a function on the MT9083 series of optical time-domain reflectometers (OTDR),  the Fibre Visualizer provides a new level of insight into optical fibre cables, connections and splices.

This enables installers to more quickly and reliably check the quality of an optical fibre installation, using automated processing on the test equipment rather than requiring expert analysis of an image or trace.

Ametek, a provider of underwater cable and connector solutions for military and commercial applications, has developed the technology to produce a glass-sealed fibre optic 'feedthru' (FOFT) for extreme high-pressure, high-temperature applications.

Fujikura Europe (FEL) has introduced a family of Focis Pro automatic fibre inspection solutions.

Aimed at providing network personnel with an automated solution for analysis and documentation of fibre connector cleanliness and integrity, the Focis Pro completely eliminates the subjective aspect of fibre inspection.

The Light Brigade, AFL’s training division, is introducing an industry-specific fibre training course to address the use of fibre optics in the pro A/V and broadcast industries. Fiber Optics for Pro A/V is aimed at those who design, install, maintain and troubleshoot fibre optic systems and spans.

The ability to measure multiple sensing points over large intricate surfaces can be a difficult task. Traditionally engineers have used electrical strain gauges to monitor many points over a structure such as an aircraft wing or large composite component. However applying many individual gauges is both time consuming and adds significant weight to the structure in the form of cabling. Fiber optic sensing techniques make this task easier by combining many sensors on a single fiber.
