Product Details Supplier Info More products

Laser Components partner Firecomms focuses on fibre-optic transceivers via plastic optical fibre (POF) and offers the Optolock transceiver for consumer electronics applications and more.

The Optolock is designed for instant termination of bare POF.

This is said to speed up and simplify the connection of devices in communication networks.

A number of Optolock transceivers are available to meet specific operating standards, one of these being the Fast Ethernet FOT operating within the IEEE 802.3u Fast Ethernet data communications standard, providing 250Mbps/100Mbps Ethernet communication link over 50/100m POF, supporting IPTV and other infotainment.

The result is seamless electrical-optical-electrical conversion with the advantage of isolation from electromagnetic interference.

Analogue Optolock transceivers are available typically used for sensor applications.

The RCLED, TX/RX pair, 665nm VCSELs, POF lengths and evaluation kits are also available.
