Lightel Offers Fiber Optic U-Turn for Sensing and Routing Applications



RENTON, Wash., March 22, 2019 — Lightel Offers Fiber Optic “U-Turn” for Sensing and Routing Applications

Lightel offers a fiber optic device which enables the user to perform a 180° turn in a 4mm diameter package for both single mode and multimode fiber. The unit has negligible insertion loss and its wavelength sensitivity is only dependent upon the fiber used. This compact device is ideal for fiber re-routing in complex optical systems where space and input/output location is critical. The device also has use in fiber optic sensor systems where the space required for the fiber return is restricted.
