Latest tech and products for data links over Plastic Optic Fibre

Firecomms will be showcasing its latest range of fibre connector solutions at this year’s PCIM show in Nuremberg. In response to the rising demands for higher EMI immunity particularly in electrical drive design, Firecomms have improved the product offerings right throughout their product portfolio. The RedLink family offers the standard 1, 5, 10 and 50MBd parts in the new dual voltage 3.3V and 5V options in horizontal, vertical and newly introduced 30° tilted housing.

The designer can optimise their design by selecting a RedLink Transmitter with integrated driver IC and with either inverting or non-inverting logic options for both the Transmitter and the Receiver.

For Command and Control applications Firecomms will present at PCIM 2018 its roadmap for its OptoLock and LC transceiver solution operating at the DC – 50MBd data-rate. The simplicity of termination, cutting with a simple blade followed by direct insertion into the OptoLock is suitable to achieve a cost effective and compact connector-less board design while maintaining a high EMI/EMC immunity.  The metal shield of the OptoLock and the conductive body of the LC provide additional EMI shielding, which is not currently available in existing low speed transceivers on the market.

For applications requiring robust plug retention andendurance against vibrations and mechanical shock the DC – 50MBd LC transceiver represents a suitable solution; it can operate from 5V or 3.3V DC power supply rails within an industrial temperature range. Both the OptoLock and the LC transceivers include a Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) function to monitor the link health status.

With the expansion of their POF Cable offering both on standard and customised simplex or duplex solutions which include a variety of plugs, in-line connectors and accessories, Firecomms are positioning themselves to be a One Stop Shop supplier for any POF requirement in the Industrial Market.

Come meet Firecomms at booth 9-242 to see the Firecomms’ solutions for the command and control world.
