Glass Fiber Optic Cables

Glass Fiber Optic Cables

Glass fiber optic cables transmit light through a cable containing a bundle of tiny glass fibers. The cable can curve back and forth through equipment to the target and still transmit light with very little signal loss. Glass fiber optic cables are available in fixed lengths in a variety of sensing tip configurations. A number of lens attachments are available to allow for extended sensing ranges. Bifurcated cables are used for diffuse reflective sensing while single fiber optic cables are used for through beam operation.
