FIBER LENGTH CALCULATORS
Presently, we offer two different kinds of optical fiber optimized for your spectral region of interest. Each type can be jacketed as outlined above and terminated in SMA or FC style connectors. Cables and bare fiber are available in a variety of core diameters from 200 μm to 600 μm (contact us for alternatives). The type of cable you’ll choose depends on your application:
Provides the lowest possible amount of internal light attenuation. It is appropriate for visible or near infrared (VIS-NIR) spectroscopy. It is especially effective for applications that require increased sensitivity in the spectral region near 1385 nm or where very long cables are necessary (up to 300 m). This cable is effective over the spectral range from 400 nm to 2100 nm.
Intended for short laboratory-bench runs, is typically sold with the lab NIR-O analyzer. This more flexible NIR fiber can be supplied in PVC-coated steel monocoil jacket, steel armored BX jacket, or PVC-zip tubing.
