    Because POF is made of insulating materials, it can provide electrically isolated data links in environments and applications where electrical isolation is critical. Image: NAVFAC / Flickr (source) (CC BY 2.0)

    One of the big advantages to polymer optical fiber is in the isolation it can give you in any design.  Engineers go to great lengths for galvanic isolations solutions. POF eliminates any pathway for common-mode noise and in most cases this is a very ec …

    POF brings several key advantages over copper and glass to every application that it is used in. Image: verkeorg / Flickr (source) (CC BY-SA 2.0)

    When a plastic optical fiber undergoes a physical change, such as bending, the light passing through it undergoes changes that are detectable, allowing it to be used as a sensor.

    In wind and solar power generation, the building blocks of power conversion and transmission are extremely similar, even though actual power generation depends on the power source itself. Spread across the wind and solar power generation platforms are …

    With polymer optical fiber, you now can look at security in a complete different way! When large solar panels are installed in a field each one of these solar panels are bolted onto a rail, but can easily be uninstalled and stolen! Using a simple POF c …
