Fibre Optic Rotary Joint Model 310
The FO310 is a sealed single-channel fiber optic rotary joint (FORJ) which is factory configured to transfer optical signals over either singlemode or multimode fiber. The FO310 supports both analog and digital optical signals, and is especially suited for sensitive single-pass optical sensing applications where optical insertion loss and back reflection must be minimized.
The FO310 FORJ has a stainless steel housing and is environmentally sealed to an ingress protection rating of IP67. It can be combined with Moog electrical and / or fluid slip rings, providing a single, complete package for optical signals, electrical power, and fluid transfer over a rotating interface.
This FORJ is assembled with either bulkhead connectors or fiber pigtails and connectors to suit the application. Housing, mounting flange, and drive features can be customized to meet specific customer requirements.
