In recent years there has been a meteoric rise in the use of plastic fiber optic cables, e.g. for data transmission on short to medium-length transmission paths. The reason for this is that plastic fiber optic cables can be connected to the relevant transmission components at low cost and using simple tools.
This book offers an introduction to the physical principles of the new technology and describes the materials and manufacturing process of plastic fibers as well as the construction of plastic fiber optic cables. It describes various types of cable, as well as transmitting and receiving components in the transmission path and provides useful tips on the processing and installation of plastic fiber optic cable. Reference is also made to important national and international standards.
This book is intended for anyone involved in the development, planning or installation of plastic fiber optic cable systems. The fundamental structure of the book also makes it suitable for university lecturers and students.
