Plastic Fiber Optics

Plastic-Fibers_onWhite

Plastic fibers are typically used for more general purpose applications where they can tolerate extreme bending and be cut to length to fit in limited space setups.

  • Plastic fibers bend easily to fit precisely where you want them.
  • High-flex models withstand repeated flexing and bending.
  • Special jackets withstand corrosion, impact and abrasion.
  • Coiled versions are available for applications requiring articulated or reciprocating motion.
  • Fibers are available in individual or bifurcated styles for opposed or diffuse sensing.
  • Diameters include 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1.0 and 1.5 mm.
