Fischer Connectors
fibreoptic series connectivity solution

Fischer Connectors expands its robust FiberOptic series with a new single-fibre optic connectivity solution (FO1). This miniature, lightweight, rugged connectivity solution is easy to use and ensures premium optical performance even in harsh environments.

The FO1 connector is available either in pre-configured reels or integrated into custom assemblies for applications in instrumentation, sensing, defence and broadcasting, to name only a few of the various fields suitable for this new product.

The new connector fulfills the growing market need for higher data transmission rates over long distances, while reducing space and guaranteeing performance by means of rugged miniature solutions.

It integrates fully into the existing Fischer FiberOptic Series, well-known for its robust and faultless optical performances in any conditions, combined with easy use, cleaning and maintenance even in the field.

FO1 key features:

  • IP68 mated and IP67 unmated
  • UPC and SM APC polishing
  • Easy cleaning even in the field
  • Fully integrated into the existing Fischer FiberOptic Series
  • High optical performances for high precision and data transmission rates
  • Ultra-rugged fibre optic solution, ideal for harsh / extreme environments
  • Easy mating thanks to push-pull locking system
  • Size: 13mm

On the occasion of the launch of its new single fibre-optic connector (FO1) within its Fischer FiberOptic series, Fischer Connectors published a new white paper.

Entitled 'Fibre-optic sensing' and authored by Jacques Miéville, Engineering Project Leader at Fischer Connectors, the white paper provides an overview of the technical basics behind sensing over fibre technologies, its main applications and the cabling solutions involved.

The main purpose of this white paper is to discuss the key factors that will help you define the best solution for your cabling needs, in order to have the most reliable and easy-to-maintain system that reduces your maintenance operations.
