Remember the 1990s and how long it took to transmit data from one device or platform to another? You can’t run a business that way today – and with our fiber optic products, you don’t have to. No other form of commercially available data transmission even comes close.
Fiber optic ribbons
Fiber optic ribbons are a form of fiber optic products dedicated to tight installation space requirement networks. As the name implies, fiber optic ribbons are optical fibers intertwined into a flat strip. They are manufactured by laying flat up to 24 individual optical fibers that are then bonded to each other, and held in place with a special water tight tape material. Since only coated optical fibers are used in this process, additional space in the network is freed up. The design of the fiber optic ribbon cables also renders fiber optics fusion splicing much easier, saving both time and money.
Fiber optic splicing
Fiber optic splicing is how you join fiber optics strands together. Fiber optics splicing is what you do when the fiber optics product is not sufficiently long for the required run or to restore fiber optic products and cables if they are accidentally broken. Fiber optic splicing is widely deployed in telecommunications, LAN (Local Area Network) and networking projects and can be performed in either fusion splices or mechanical splices. Fusion fiber optic splicing is the permanent welding together of two fiber optics products via electric arcs. Mechanical fiber optic splicing is a more quick and easy way to join fiber optics products together with connectors joining the fibers.
Fiber optics sights
Fiber optics work by transmitting light along their length, a property that is ideal for more applications than communications and data transmission. Fiber optics sights for handguns use this property in a somewhat different way. Fiber optics products are almost perfectly reflective, which means they pick up ambient light and transmit it along the length of the cable. Since the front sight is very conspicuous with a fiber optic sight, indexing the front sight is made almost ridiculously easy. Hence, many handguns come stocked with them or have a aftermarket fiber optic front sight affixed to them.
