    Plastic optical fiber systems can be configured for a wide variety of measurement applications and environments. Applications include temperature, pressure, flex, strain, rotation, movement, and chemical composition.  Most fiber optic sensor configurat …

    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.

    Benefits of Firecomms Fiber Optics for Consumer Network Applications Firecomms fiber optic solutions are ideal solutions for high-bandwidth triple play networks that require Ethernet data to be transmitted across the home network. Together with Plastic …
