POF and PCF Fiber-Optic Cables
For optical network structures, but short distances
For configuring optical networks, glass fiber-optic cables are used for long distances, while plastic fiber-optic cables made from light-conducting plastics (POF) or plastic-coated glass fibers (PCF) are used for short distances.
Simple fiber-optic cabling directly at the machine is implemented using the SC RJ connection system for Polymer Optic Fiber and Polymer Cladded Fiber.
In order to ensure high availability, the cables are monitored during commissioning and runtime for any attenuation resulting from material aging.
