A Versatile Fiber-Optic Transmitter and Receiver for Plastic Fiber 890201
Plastic optical fiber provides an excellent transmission medium for short distance communication. Several industrial, computer, medical and automotive applications utilize low-cost, plastic fiber-optic components. In addition to low cost, these components also provide electrical noise immunity, high-voltage insulation and light weight. Some of these low-cost, plastic fiber-optic components can be mounted horizontal or vertical. The versatility of these components is presented in this paper.
