Analog RedLink® fiber optic receiver, vertical orientation
The Firecomms Analogue Receiver is based on a highly reliable photodiode which generates a current proportional to the fiber coupled incident light. It is encapsulated in a clear plastic over-mold which forms a lens suitable for coupling to 1mm Plastic Optic Fiber(POF). The receiver is housed in a blue plastic housing which is UL rated flame retardant (UL 94 V-0). The housing is compatible with the Versatile Link style fiber plug, and is ideal for use with POF. The receiver operates over the industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C supporting many industrial applications where reliable command, control and sensing response is required in electrically harsh environments.
The receiver can be used as a simple light sensing device or as part of a communications link by combining the output with an external transimpedance amplifier.
