Poli-MOD

AFL is introducing the Poli-MOD, a pig-tailed optical interconnect patch and splice module designed for network growth.

Accommodating up to 24 fibre interconnections in an industry-standard, single-slot LGX 118 footprint, the Poli-MOD module uses a snap-in splice sleeve cradle that securely manages both single and ribbon fibre arrangements. This customised cradle provides a means for the installer to secure splice sleeves prior to routing fibre within the module, reducing installation time and minimising the risk for damaging fibre.

FLS-2800 Benchtop ITLA Tunable Laser Source

Exfo has unveiled the FLS-2800 Benchtop ITLA Tunable Laser Source, a high-power, continuous wave (CW) laser unit with narrow linewidth and high-resolution tunability. Developed jointly with Coherent Solutions, it is currently available exclusively from Exfo.

Fibre-optic transceivers

Harting has developed a range of fibre-optic transceivers suitable for industrial applications by integrating electro-optical converters in small-form factor (SFF and SFP) packages with PushPull connector technology.

The company says the new devices have been developed in response to increasing demands for high-reliability optical communication devices that will withstand the harsh environmental conditions and vibration encountered in industrial applications, while offering simple handling and installation.

LaserCleave

OpTek Systems has launched the second generation of its bench-top tool for termination of optical interconnects. The company says the LaserCleave is a compact, production-ready platform designed to maximise productivity in optical connector manufacturing.

Central to the LaserCleave-1500 technology’s core value is the elimination of mechanical scribing, which is prone to fibre chips and hackle, and the reduction of mechanical polishing steps that are used in the traditional finishing of connectors.

RMT Boman series

New from Ridgemount Technologies is the RMT Boman series, which offers breakout manifolds of various sizes to accommodate different cable constructions and different fan-out tubes. They are ideal for pre-connection of both indoor and outdoor cables, the company says.

They have been designed to ensure that a consistent product is manufactured with a simple assembly tooling; fibre failures due to twist and tension are prevented, and performance is safeguarded. Applications include CATV and broadcast, data centre SANs, LAN ethernet networks and telecom networks.

H-206 alignment system

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.

All Grating Fiber

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.
