PMMA Plastic Light Optical Fiber for Lighting and Decoation Bare
Plastic Optical Fiber (POF) is a unique member of the optical fiber
family. POF is made of Poly Methyl Methacrylate (PMMA), with a
large core diameter (~1 mm) and high numerical aperture (NA 0.3 –
The following figure shows a comparison of a typical POF geometry
compared to another well known optical fiber, the Multi Mode Glass
Optical Fiber (MM-GOF). It is easy to appreciate the huge core
diameter (20x) as well as the relativelly thin clad of POF compared
Advantages of POF
Thanks to its huge core diameter, POF is immune to misalignments
and strong vibrations, and can be installed in rugged industrial
and automotive environments without any loss of communication
POF is ideally suited for deployment either by a professional
installer or a do-it-yourself installer using basic tools, such as
a pair of scissors or a cutter, and inexpensive plastic connectors.
An optical transmission media, POF is completely immune to
electrical noise. For example, existing copper wire installations
will not interfere with data passing through POF lines, so POF can
be installed anywhere next to electrical cabling.
POF and its connectors and optoelectronics are low cost consumer
parts that enable installers to save on cable costs and
installation, as well as testing and maintenance time.
Widely used in over 20 million cars for infotainment networks, POF
is part of the automotive standard, Media Oriented Systems
Transport for high-speed data transmission in car networks.
Plastic Optic Fiber Cable for Communication
Communication plastic optical fiber application
- Application in FTTH (fiber to home)
Fit in to glass optical fiber networking, taking good effect in the
terminal of broadband networking. Plastic optical fiber can resolve
optimum solution of “the last hundred meters”.
- Application in consumer electronics
The patch cords of plastic optical fiber are used in transmission
for digital audio, wideband transmission with high speed, high
fidelity, low attenuation, and the POF cable could reduce the
electromagnetic interference to zero
- Application in automobile intelligence
POF is used for navigator instrument, automobile communication,
delight video system, and television, DVD player, audio, lamps,
switching connecting line.
- Application in industry control and monitor system
Plastic optical fiber can be used in line control of power station
in strong magnetic field, connecting different equipments, being
the communication linkage of sensors. The movement of target
detection, networking forward and monitor vision information.
- Application in military communication
Plastic optical fiber cable have been widely used in transition
network of action zone, military chain of command, the mount device
of chariot, fighting plane, warship, and can not be replaced in the
future electric combat.
The characteristic of plastic optical fiber for data transmission
- Low cost for maintenance, saving cooper resource, energy-saving
and environment protection.
- Immune to electromagnetic wave radiation, no noise effect, good
capacity of resisting disturbance.
- Low weight, flexible, high resist flutter and determinate
- High bandwidth, high speed, good performance.
- High privacy protection, reliable safety.
- Optimum bandwidth, high speed, good performance.
