Plastic optical fiber (POF) and communication application

Plastic optical fiber (POF) and communication application

  After the FOT Blog post “”Plastic optical fiber (POF) and FTTH application” published, people would like to know much more detail regarding to this strong plastic optical fiber. So FOT team is sharing another post regarding to this fiber optical product , in a more wide area: communication application.

  • Light in weight, excellent flexibility, vibration resistance; 
  • Anti-electromagnetic interface, stable and reliable signal transmission;
  • Low-loss optical window in the light-visible area;
  • Ability to transmit visible light bur not ultraviolet, or infrared, no conductivity or heat transfer; 
  • Smooth surface, good flexibility, bendable shape;
  • 2-3 times more bright than end-light optical fiber ;
  • Ability to transmit visible night but not ultraviolet,or infrared, no conductivity or heat transfer;
