INDUSTRIAL FIBER OPTICS BEGINS MANUFACTURE OF PROFIBUS and Interbus-s FIBER OPTIC CABLES

Tempe, Arizona - Industrial Fiber Optics (IFO) is now manufacturing and marketing top-of-the-line PROFIBUS and Interbus-s fiber optic cables direct to end users as well as to distributors. The company has long been a primary supplier of custom fiber optic patch cords to industry, but previously didn't direct-market these products.

The marketing change will:

  • reduce the cost of PROFIBUS and Interbus-s fiber networks
  • provide customers with the options of custom fiber lengths to suit specific applications
  • allow second sourcing of critical components
  • reduce customers- lead time

IFO's standard product line of PROFIBUS and Interbus-s cables duplicates both standard-s requirements for either "inside-" or" outside-component enclosure" applications. Five different fiber cables options are available to meet all "outside" the enclosure and "inside" the enclosure requirements.

IFO makes all patch cords from Eska™ Premier fiber cable terminated on both ends with top quality TIA compliant ST™ Connect fiber optic connectors. Assembly processes and materials significantly exceed industry-standard specifications for cables. This includes using special epoxy to bond core/cladding to stainless steel ferrules, and adhesive-lined heat shrink to bond Kevlar« strength members/jacket to the fiber connector body. All cables include strain relief components on both ends to minimize stress.

The IF-643 series patch cord utilizes the rugged GHTT4001 fiber cable, a dual-jacket cable featuring PVC outer and PE inner jackets. This cable includes a layer of Kevlar« to enhance strength. The IF-642 series offers GHCP4001 cable. The IF-640 and the IF-641 are cables with the GH4001 and GHV4001 Eska™ fiber cable. The optical fiber core in all cables uses Eska™ Premier 980 Ám diameter PMMA core with a 10 Ám layer of cladding. Find detailed specifications for both fiber cables on the IFO web site. For general purpose, low cost cable there is also the IF-645 cable series using the Super Eska™ SH4001 fiber cable.

The complete product line offers cable lengths from .5 to 100 meter(s) in length, as well as options for custom lengths.
