On top of it, Omron provide customised fiber solutions based
on your demand and specification, made in Germany.
Variation of fiber optics
Flexible fiber models are indicated by an "R" at the end of the model number.
Flexible fiber contains multiple cores. These cores are all surrounded by cladding, giving a minimum bending radius of 1 mm. The
fiber can be bent at right angles without affecting the light intensity. Handle it just like any other cable.
Conventional fiber uses just one core and one cladding section. Bending the fiber may break it or reduce the light intensity.
Flexible fiber contains multiple independent cores all surrounded by cladding. The fiber can be bent without breaking or reducing the light intensity.
Fiber for robot application
Individual cores in one bundle, Surrounded by cladding, Strong against repeatable bending.
Bending radius 4 mm
The accuracy of coaxial fibers is very high, due to the special orientation of transmitter- and receiver fibers.
With the special lens unit, the spot beam can be reduced to
min. 0,1 mm.
