Cabling technology for the construction of optical networks

08.11.2010
A new cabling system for the construction of optical networks is extending the product range of the Siemens Industry Automation Division.

The fiber optic lucent connector (FO LC) cabling system consists of single-mode and multi-mode cables as well as LCs and supplements the Simatic Net portfolio.


The multi-mode cables, consisting of two glass fibers, can span distances of up to four kilometers. Single-mode cables, on the other hand, consist of four fibers, enabling two device connections to be established in one cable.

They achieve ranges of up to 26 kilometers. The new cabling system also comprises special duplex connectors for the parallel use of both multi-mode and single-mode cables.

The LC format is characterized by a compact design and is widely used for the plug-in connections of fiber-optic cables (FOC). The LC format is supported, among others, by numerous Scalance components, such as the Industrial Ethernet Switches X308-2M, XR-300 and X-300EEC. The Simatic Net cables feature a robust, industry-standard 900-micrometer core construction.

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
