Optical Voice Link, Simplex
Assembled, ready-to-use, battery-powered device for demonstrating audio communications with fiber optics

This Industrial Fiber Optics kit 'favorite' may have earned more high grades and scholastic honors for student science projects than any other. For students and experimenters alike, the Optical Voice Link is the ideal introduction for an electronics hobbyist first learning about the marvels, mysteries and science of light transmission through optical fiber. There is something fascinating, indeed, about hearing your own voice, after it has been converted into light and then coupled into, through, and out of an optical fiber.

NOTE: This project comes fully assembled. No prior fiber optics experience, special tools, or training are needed.

The Optical Voice Link is suitable for science projects; home projects for the hobbyist; short audio fiber optic curricula for schools; inexpensive classroom demonstrations; hands-on industrial training; and voice transmission in critical electrical isolation applications.
