Specialty Optical Fibers and Cables
Termination Kits, Test Sets and Connectors
HCS® 200 µm Optical Fiber and Cable HCS® 200 µm Optical Fiber and Cable
HCS High OH 0.37 NA fibers are for coupling to LED and laser sources, these larger core diameter fibers connect more efficiently and less expensively than single-mode or graded-index fibers. HCS Low OH 0.37 NA fibers are ideally suited for use with both 650 and 850 nm active devices. HCS Low OH High NA fiber captures more input power with very low bend-induced attenuation, high coupling efficiency. These fibers are compatible with crimp and cleave termination.
