Fibre Optic Rotary Joint Model 285(sm) / 286(mm)

The FO285 (single-channel singlemode) and the FO286 (single-channel multimode) are passive and bidirectional, and allow the transfer of optical signals across rotational interfaces. Both models also offer other benefits of fiber optics, including low spark hazard.

With a body diameter of only 9.5 mm and lengths of 26 mm and 19 mm for the FO285 and FO286 respectively, both units are ideally suited to applications where size and weight are critical issues.

Both models can be combined with our electrical and / or fluid slip rings, providing a single, compact package for optical signals, electrical power and fluid transfer.
