FCI Fiber Optics products

FCI has launched FCI Fiber Optics, a product line of fiber-optic couplers, splitters, taps, wavelength division multiplexers, cable assemblies and adaptors, all based on the Canstar technology. This line may be used in a variety of military, aerospace and commercial applications including industrial, data and communications optical devices.

The FCI Fiber Optics line includes several types of couplers for various design specifications including one-in, many-out couplers as well as one-in, two-out couplers available as even-split or ratio-split. Even-split couplers include traditional splitters, y-junction couplers and 50:50 couplers, while ratio-split couplers include access and tap couplers. Attenuators, or one-in, one-out couplers for attenuating all wavelengths are also included in the product line.

Couplers are available in multimode and single-mode styles. Multimode couplers enable users to transmit data through the optical fiber via multiple modes simultaneously. These multimode couplers operate over 600-1600nm and in visible light from 400-700nm. Several fiber widths are available including 50/125/250?m for telecom standards, 62.5/125/250?m for datacom standards, 100/140/171?m for military and aerospace and 200/240/500?m for sensors as well as medical and industrial applications.

Single-mode couplers are available for specific wavelengths of 850-, 980-, 1300-, 1310- or 1550nm in a single- or dual-window design. The SMF-28 couplers are designed for wavelengths greater than 1250nm (9/125/250), and the Flexcor couplers are for wavelengths less than 1250nm.

Samples are available for delivery with production lead times from stock to 12 weeks.
