High-Temperature Plastic Optical Fibres (POFs) for -55°C to +105°C


Communication links based on plastic optical fibres can be pushed to their limit in high-temperature environments.  This is because, in addition to affecting the other components, the transmission of the fibres is reduced at high temperatures.  Our partner Toray has helped remedy this situation by introducing a high-temperature POF onto the market that can withstand a temperature range of -55°C to +105°C.


This fibre is available in a cabled version with a fibre diameter of 500µm or 1000µm.  A PA or PE jacket serves as protection.  Customers may choose between two different outer diameters: 1.5mm or 2.2mm. The numerical aperture is 0.58.


This fibre was developed for industrial and automotive applications.
