Fibre Optic Rotary Joint Model 215/292

Model 215

The FO215 is an ultra-compact, two pass, multimode fiber optic rotary joint (FORJ). It is passive and bidirectional, and allows the transfer of optical signals on two separate optical fibers across rotational interfaces.

The FO215 can be combined with our electrical and fluid slip rings, giving a single, compact package for optical signals, electrical power and fluid transfer.

The FORJ can be assembled with pigtail lengths tailored to the customer’s application. Housing, mounting flange and drive features can also be customized to meet the customer’s requirements.

Features

  • Provides rotary coupling for two multimode fibers
  • Passive bidirectional device
  • Can be combined with our electrical slips and fluid unions
  • Connectorized version allows for easy fiber cable replacement
  • Customized mounting flanges available
  • Optional fluid-filled version for deep submergence to 10,000 psi (69,000 kPa)
  • Can be integrated into existing slip ring designs
  • Stainless steel housing (aluminum for connectorized version)
  • Rugged design (MIL-STD-167-1 ship vibration, - MIL-STD-810E functional shock (40 g))

Applications

  • Winches and cable reels for remotely operated vehicles
  • Remote I / O in industrial machinery
  • Video surveillance systems
  • Material handling systems
  • Sensor platforms
  • Robots
  • Turrets


Model 292

The Model 292 is an ultra-compact, two pass, multimode fiber optic rotary joint (FORJ). It is passive and bidirectional, and allows the transfer of optical signals on two separate optical fibers across rotational interfaces.

The Model 292 can be combined with our electrical and fluid slip rings, giving a single, compact package for optical signals, electrical power and fluid transfer.

The FORJ can be assembled with pigtail lengths tailored to the customer’s application. Housing, mounting flange and drive features can also be customized to meet the customer’s requirements. The Model 292 can also be installed with one or both ends having a 90° cable exit, providing even more flexibility when installing the unit into existing slip ring assemblies or installations with little clearance space.

Features

  • Provides rotary coupling for two multimode fibers
  • Passive and bidirectional
  • Can be combined with various electrical slip rings and fluid unions
  • Smaller and more compact than the standard FO215 with improved back reflection performance
  • Customized mounting flanges available
  • Optional 90 degree cable exits at either end of the FORJ
  • Optional fluid-filled version for deep submergence to 10,000 psi (69,000 kPa)
  • Can be integrated into existing slip ring designs
  • Stainless steel housing
  • Rugged design
    • MIL-STD-167-1 ship vibration
    • MIL-STD-810 functional shock (40 g)

Benefits

  • Can be integrated into existing slip ring designs
  • Passive bidirectional optical transmission
  • Can be combined with our electrical slips and fluid unions
  • Long life

Applications

  • Winches and cable reels for remotely operated vehicles
  • Remote I / O in industrial machinery
  • Video surveillance systems
  • Material handling systems
  • Sensor platforms
  • Robots
  • Turrets
