Plug and Play for optical data transmission

The joining of glass fibres – the so-called splicing – requires a lot of experience and fine motor skills. And once the fibres are connected they can only be separated again by cutting. Pluggable connections are therefore better suited for the variable connection of terminal devices in industrial plants. For this purpose there are splice boxes with sockets, so-called pigtails, into which the optical fibres can be inserted...
