We would like to show you our finished cable assemblies.
Unfortunately, these are subject to strict confidentiality agreements and are therefore not intended for the public.
Under the heading “References” you can get an idea of some of our business partners we have worked with so far.
Fiber optic cables have long been used as a transmission medium in industry.
As with electrical cables, the design and materials depend on the respective Intended use of the cables. Beside standard cables also customized cables can be delivered. We work together with leading cable manufacturers in Europe.

Technical advice on product selection
There are five main types of application areas:
1. Indoor installation
Indoor cables for moderate temperature ranges (industry standard) and without UV exposure
2. Outdoor installation
Outdoor cables for extended temperature range and UV exposure for open installation or in cable ducts/shafts
3. Outdoor installation
Outdoor cables for extended temperature ranges and UV-load for hanging from pole to pole (not available from POFNETZ)
4. Underground installation
Underground cable for direct laying in the ground
MIL-cable for extreme temperature ranges, tensile loads and transverse pressure
The following versions are usually used
Single strands → a fiber with additional protective jacket
Duplex cores → two fibers with connected protective sheath (only for POF: tearable)
Single cable → single core with strain relief (Kevlar) and outer sheath
Duplex cable (Figure 8) → two connected single cables (tearable)
Duplex cable (Figure 0) → two single cables with common outer sheath
Duplex cable round → two single wires with strain relief and outer sheath (POF)
Breakout cable → cable with two or more individual cables in a common outer sheath and additional strain relief. Copper wires can be combined.
Hollow core cable → cable with one or more tubes for up to 16 fibers and strain relief
Underground cables and outdoor cables are usually designed as hollow core cables and equipped with additional rodent protection. MIL-cables are mostly used as breakout cables because they are flexible enough for use on cable drums.
Breakout and duplex versions are usually used for indoor applications. For certain applications, cable designs have been defined by appropriate committees (such as SERCOS, DESINA, MOST, etc.).
Advantages of the LWL technology
Interference-free data transmission
No electromagnetic radiation (electro-smog)
Insensitive to electromagnetic radiation (electro-smog)
Reduced cable and fiber dimensions
High electric strength of the light guide
Can be combined with copper cables (→ Hybrid cables)
Higher bandwidths than with copper cables
Higher ranges than copper lines (lower line attenuation)
Reduced energy consumption
Additional advantages of the POF (Polymer Optical Fiber):
- High mechanical tensile strength
- High mechanical flexural strength (real bending resistant fibers)
- Bending cycles > 1 million are possible.
Low bending attenuation with multi-core fibers for bending radii up to 2mm
Simple assembly techniques with and without connectors
Can be used with visible red light (650nm) or green light (520nm) for visual control of the system function
