Lucent Technologies introduces FiberWire, a rugged, industrial optical fiber communications cable system designed to supersede copper wire and coaxial cable communications systems on the factory floor
Lucent Technologies, Specialty Fiber Technologiesnologies introduces FiberWire, a rugged, industrial optical fiber communications cable system designed to supersede copper wire and coaxial cable communications systems on the factory floor. It offers a variety of connector types to support industrial protocols like Profibus, Fieldbus, ControlNet and Interbus-S.
The FiberWire family provides ease of use with lower overall system cost than copper systems. Its bandwidth performance and intrinsic EMI/RFI immunity make it ideal for the harsh factory environment.
FiberWire withstands the harsh environments of industrial applications over the full industrial temperature range of –40°C to +85°C, while maintaining its superior distance and bandwidth performance of 10MHz at 1 km. With a 200 micron glass fiber optic core and patented polymer cladding technology, FiberWire also can be terminated and connected in less than three minutes. Lucent's "crimp and cleave" termination tool kits allow for close-quarter terminations in the plant and in the field without the adhesives, polishing disks, solvents, or clean-rom conditions previously associated with optical fiber terminations.
