Plastic Optical Fiber Products

  XiOptics leads the industry in providing low optical loss solutions for plastic optical fiber (POF) connectivity in harsh environments.  We have full range of termini systems for POF media up to 1.0 mm core. Our products have been qualified to operate in the most demanding environments including flight certification for commercial aerospace.  Our unique endface solution provides a stress free optical core solution and constrains the interface with special stainless steel ferrule designs for low cost.  Our product benefits  include:

  • Body Materials: XiOptics uses only precision machined and passivated stainless steel for all components. This ensures compatibility with all connector platforms as well as providing users absolute surety of non-corrosive products.
  • Compression Springs: XiOptics uses only the finest pre-set and precision ground 17 series stainless steel springs. This ensures that our products perform the same after one or a thousand mating cycles.
  • Termination: our POF products allow for rapid and low cost termination using standard adhesive systems. These can be either UV or thermal cure. Our endface geometry ensures no long term loss degradation due to mating stresses. 

Our POF termini are available as size 16 contacts and are specifically designed to operate with a broad range of industry standard connector systems. Our products have passed rigorous FAA witnessed flight testing in both Mil-DTL-38999 connectors and ARINC 600 series connectors.  So if termination of plastic optical fiber in harsh environments for industrial, medical, aerospace or defense systems is a needed with optical losses of less than 1 db,  XiOptics can deliver.
