Glass Fiber Optic Assemblies

Most glass fiber optic assemblies are very rugged and perform reliably in extreme temperatures, corrosive or vacuum chamber environments. Glass fiber optic assemblies can transmit both visible and infrared light, where plastic fiber optics can only transmit visible light. Glass fibers that are specially terminated may be used in plastic fiber amplifiers.

Advantages: 

  • Powerful and very rugged
  • Can carry infrared light to provide a longer range
  • Reliable in extreme temperatures and harsh environments
Step 1: Choose a Fiber Type

Fiber optics guide light from the amplifier to a sensing location, or from the sensing location back to the amplifier. Fibers are typically used becuase of space constraints, hostile environments, or lack of power at the sensing location.

Banner has the largest portfolio of fiber optic assemblies in the industry. We have over 1,000 different fibers to meet every space, environment, and sensing requirement.

High Temperature Fiber Optics

High temp fiber optics are used where the temperature is too hot for plastic fibers. Popular use in thermal process applications.

Specialty Fiber Optics
Specialty Fiber Optics

Fibers for liquid level detection, Ferrule, Probe, and side view sensing end tips, as well as custom fibers for specific applications.

Step 2: Choose a Fiber Optic Amplifier

The amplifier emits, receives, and converts the light energy into an electrical signal. Since the fiber amplifier is a separate unit from the fibers, it can be mounted and powered remotely.
