The FO228, a single-channel multimode fiber optic rotary joint (FORJ), is passive and bidirectional, and maintain the benefits of fiber optics (such as high bandwidth and EMI immunity) in systems with a rotational interface.
This cost-efficient FORJ model is designed for applications having moderate demands for optical performance and life. Due to its lens-less design, it can operate at any wavelength supported by the fiber used in the assembly.
The FORJ can be combined with our electrical and fluid slip rings, giving a single, compact package for optical signals, electrical power and fluid transfer.
Provides rotary coupling for a multimode fiber link
Can be combined with our electrical slips and fluid unions
Alternative drive coupling and mounting arrangements are available (consult factory for specification details)
Connectorized interfaces, for easy fiber cable replacement
50/125 or 62.5/125 (consult factory for other sizes)
Typical < 2.5 dB, Maximum <4.0 dB
Typical < 0.5 dB, Maximum <1.0 dB
Wavelength is fiber dependent. 850/1300/1550 nm available
To 100 rpm. Higher rotation speeds should be discussed with the factory.
