97% coupling efficiency at high power
across rotary joint
Rotational coupling to spool and unspool high power fiber optic cable
Conventional fiber optic slip rings operate at low powers on the order of magnitude of a single watt.
The Optical Slip Ring (OSR) extends the standard industry capabilities to high power to allow for spool-deployment of the fiber optic cable.
Additional technical requirements include high efficiency (less than 3 percent loss) and thermally-compensated optics that maintain alignment throughout the operating range of laser powers.
To enable integration and operation in a field environment, the OSR is designed for mounting in spool hubs and all-weather conditions including temperature, humidity, and shock
