Single Fiber Assemblies survive damaging environments.

Press Release Summary:

Single fiber assemblies with core sizes from 50-1,000 microns offer choice of chemical-resistant, non-magnetic sheathing options. For general-purpose use, non-conductive furcation tubing protects fibers with liquid-tight seal and consists of Kevlar reinforced PVC sleeve over polypropylene tube. To accommodate more specialized applications, stainless steel monocoil sheathing is vacuum-compatible as well as resistant to tight bending, crushing, cutting, kinking, and elevated temperatures.

New Line of Single Fiber Assemblies from Fiberguide Industries

Selection of protective sheathing and fiber optic core sizes to fit customers' needs

Stirling, N.J. - Allowing the use of fiber optics in potentially damaging environments, Fiberguide Industries introduces its new standard line of single fiber assemblies. Fiberguide's assemblies have proven effective in a number of scientific and industrial applications ranging from light measurement, process monitoring and control, to UV-VIS spectroscopy, chromatography and fluorescence.

Single fiber assemblies are available with two choices of chemical resistant, non-magnetic sheathing to fit customers' needs. For general purpose use, Fiberguide's furcation tubing is comprised of a Kevlar reinforced PVC sleeve over a polypropylene tube. Furcation tubing is non-conductive and protects fibers with a liquid-tight seal.

For more specialized applications, Fiberguide offers stainless steel monocoil sheathing. The monocoil is vacuum compatible and resistant to tight bending, crushing, cutting, kinking and high temperatures.

Both standard cable designs are rated for use at ambient temperatures. Single fiber assemblies are available with core sizes ranging from 50µ to 1000µ and wavelengths from deep UV (DUV) to UV-VIS and VIS-IR. Assemblies are also available upon request with ST and FC connectors, numerical apertures of 0.12 and 0.26, and continuous lengths up to 50 meters.
