New Fiber to Fiber Coupler with Power Handling Capability of 12 kW (CW)(PresseBox) (Santa Clara, Calif., )
The FFC is an eye-safe, stand-alone, water-cooled photonic component that handles laser power levels of 12 kW. A range of options enables coupling between fibers of different core diameters, as well as commonly used connector interfaces (QB, QD and Q5).
The FFC incorporates DGUV-certified safety electronics, and is an extension of the feeding fiber interlock circuit. It also includes integrated sensors, monitored and controlled by CANopen communication, whose threshold values can be set to enable or disable the interlock circuitry.
The FFC is ideal for high power industrial applications of fiber lasers, including Coherent HighLight FL series products.
