The application of optical fibers in various fields


Optical Fibers uses in Medical industry


Because of the extremely thin and flexible nature, it is used in various instruments to view internal body parts by inserting into hollow spaces in the body. It is used as lasers during surgeries, endoscopy, microscopy and biomedical research.


Optical Fibers used in Communication


In the communication system, telecommunication has major uses of optical fiber cables for transmitting and receiving purposes. It is used in various networking fields and even increases the speed and accuracy of the transmission data. Compared to copper wires, fiber optics cables are lighter, more flexible and carry more data. In practical application, there are many accessories about optical fiber, such as optical fiber adapters and fiber connectors.


Optical Fibers used in Defense Purpose


Fiber optics are used for data transmission in high-level data security fields of military and aerospace applications. These are used in wirings in aircraft, hydrophones for SONARs and Seismics applications.


Optical Fibers are used in Industries


These fibers are used for imaging in hard to reach places such as they are used for safety measures and lighting purposes in automobiles both in the interior and exterior. They transmit information in lightning speed and are used in airbags and traction control. They are also used for research and testing purposes in industries.


Optical Fibers used for Broadcasting


These cables are used to transmit high definition television signals which have greater bandwidth and speed. Optical Fiber is cheaper compared to the same quantity of copper wires. Broadcasting companies use optical fibers for wiring HDTV, CATV, video-on-demand and many applications.


Optical Fiber used in Lightening and Decorations


By now, we got a fair idea of what is an optical fiber and it also gives an attractive, economical and easy way to illuminate the area and that is why it is widely used in decorations and Christmas trees.


Optical Fibers used in Mechanical Inspections


On-site inspection engineers use optical fibers to detect damages and faults which are at hard to reach places. Even plumbers use optical fibers for inspection of pipes.


Currently, more and more companies are replacing their old copper-wire-based systems with new fiber-optic-based systems to improve speed, capacity and clarity. MELONTEL is one of the leading communication equipment manufacturers in China, which provides professional solution by producing LC Fast Fiber Connectors, Fiber Patch Cord, Fiber Patch Panel, Distribution Box, keystone jack, fiber optic lights, etc.
