For any application-oriented sensor solution, a suitable fiber-optic cable must be chosen. At SICK, the broad range of fiber-optic cables made from plastic and glass fibers permits optimal automation solutions. This applies in particular to tasks for which the fiber-optic cable requires application-specific adaption, where flexible cable installation is crucial, where high temperatures prevail, or a particular material compatibility is important. While the fibers of plastic fiber-optic cables are characterized, among other things, by the smallest of bend radii and maximum flexibility, and can also be shortened to any length, the glass fiber-optic cables are more chemically resistant and suitable for a higher temperature range. The wide variety of end sleeve options or individual special sleeves enable virtually any installation possibility. Depending on the application, the fiber-optic cable's protective cladding can be made from plastic, metal, or Teflon for exposure to aggressive chemicals.
