Transmission Fiber Cable

IRflex’s mid-infrared transmission cable made from its nonlinear mid-infrared fiber has uses in many military and commercial markets for illumination, detection and bio-chemical sensing. Our mid-infrared transmission cable can be produced for use in long lengths with low attenuation, in order to permit the transmission of laser beams with the greatest power to a remote location.

The standard fiber cable assembling is offered with stanless steel ferrules, FC/UPC, FC/APC, SMA905 connectors, PVDF, PVC or stainless steel jackets.  Otehr different cable assembling configurations are offered upon requests.
