POF cutter ULTIMODE POF-2T (for Plastic Optical Fibers).
- designed to cut POF
- high precision cuts
POF cutter ULTIMODE POF-2T (for Plastic Optical Fibers) is used to precisely cut the fibers to length as needed. Due to the POF network solution, the double holes in the cutter allow simultaneous cutting of duplex cables. Additionally, it is possible to separate the two fibers and strip the jacket.
- cutting POF simplex cables with external diameters of 0.75, 1.0, 1.3, 1.5, 2.0, 2.2 mm,
- cutting POF duplex cables with external diameters of 1.5x3.0 mm and 2.2x4.4 mm,
- separating duplex cables with external diameters of 1.5x3.0 mm and 2.2x4.4 mm,
- stripping jackets from cables with external diameters of 1.5 mm and 2.2 mm (1 mm core diameter).
The decisive advantage of POF cables is their small size. The external diameter of one fiber is only 2.2 mm, which makes it easy to hide it behind skirting boards and pull through conduits. Plastic optical fibers can be installed by anyone - the installation is simpler and quicker than in the case of coaxial or twisted pair cables. All optical fibers are immune to electromagnetic interference and pulses.
POF networks are ideal for home, SOHO, and business applications.
Simple and quick installation
ULTIMODE Home System
ULTIMODE Home System is a solution to create optical home networks (FITH - Fiber In The Home). Simple and safe installation of ULTIMODE POF equipment allows anyone to install and expand their optical networks.
The main features of the ULTIMODE home system
- Electromagnetic neutrality and immunity to interference
POF cables, similarly to all optical fibers, are completely immune to electromagnetic interference and pulses, crosstalk etc. Looking the other way, they do not generate any interference. The electromagnetic neutrality allows for running the POF cables in common conduits, together with electric or telecommunications cabling.
- Immunity to power and lighting surges
As isolators, optical fibers do not carry any power or lightning surges, in opposite to the copper wiring. So, there is no need for any additional protection against lightning surges. It is especially important in the case of outdoor installations (overhead links between buildings, to IP intercoms etc).
- Small size and resistance to mechanical damage
The decisive advantage of POF cables is their small size. The external diameter of one fiber is only 2.2 mm, which makes it easy to hide it behind skirting boards and pull through conduits. The core of the fiber is made of PMMA ("acrylic glass"), which provides high strength, resistance to UV and visible light transparency. The cable jacket is made of PE (polyethylene), which is suitable for outdoor applications.
- Ease of installation
The speed and ease of installation is provided by OptoLock connectors. The user should only cut the POF cable(s) to length as needed (with a dedicated POF cutter), and simply insert the fibers to the ports. It eliminates the need to pay for specialized services, which is necessary in the case of optical glass fibers.
