Polymer Optical Fibre for Industrial & other Fibre Optic Systems

Easier to handle than standard 1 km plus reels for fibre optic systems with shorter links

OMC, the pioneer in optoelectronics design & manufacture, has launched new “Handy Packs” of its most popular sizes of high-quality polymer optical fibre for industrial and other fibre optic systems.  The handy pack spools are 100 metre length reels of optical fibre, ideal for projects that require shorter datalinks.

Usually polymer optical fibre is supplied as standard on larger reels of one kilometre or more.  The OMC Handy Pack spools are far smaller, lighter and easier for customers to handle and store than large standard reels. In addition, they are lower cost, an important factor at times when customers may wish to hold stocks of different sizes and types of polymer fibre but are finding it challenging to predict forward orders and requirements from their own customers.  OMC produces the small handy pack spools in house and can supply them with four different variations of polymer optical fibre:  1mm core simplex single core with polyethylene or PVC jacket, and unjacketed bare simplex fibre in1mm, 2mm or 3mm core sizes.  Duplex fibre with polyethelyne jacket is available on 50 metre spools.

OMC Handy Pack spools are available now to order from OMC’s purpose-built facility in the UK.
