Firecomms’ industrial transceivers are suitable for a range of industrial, consumer, harsh and noisy environments and applications.

Firecomms_TransceiverFirecomms’ technology is used and respected in many market segments including power and energy, industrial, transportation, automotive, medical, gaming, military, aeronautical and the consumer market. Their products are lightweight, durable and flexible, resilient to bending and vibrations yet offer visible spectrum operation, allowing eye-safe, fast troubleshooting. With low power consumption, their products offer reduced maintenance cycle times and best in class lifecycle on transceivers and cables.

 
  • Consumer and home networks:
    Firecomms’ fibre optic solutions are ideal for high-bandwidth triple play networks that require Ethernet data to be transmitted across the home network. Together with Plastic Optical Fibre (POF), Firecomms’ fibre optic transceivers enable quicker, more flexible and cost-effective installations, a unique advantage for home builders, installers, content providers, and consumers alike.

 
  • Cable assemblies:
    Firecomms have a wide range of fibre optic cable, connectors and assembly products, offering flexibility to choose exactly the right cable solution fitting to meet the installation requirements. Cables and components are available individually, or as one of Firecomms’ standard length pre-finished cable assemblies. In special cases there is the facility to customise POF or PCS cable assemblies to order.

 
  • Medical imaging:
    Firecomms’ fibre optic solutions deliver on the unique demands of the medical imaging industry, ensuring that the integrity of the processed data not be compromised by the unique operating conditions found in medical imaging applications. Firecomms have developed light sources and communications ICs with the deep understanding of the requirements of medical imaging applications. Their light sources use Resonant Cavity LED (RCLED) technology to ensure the strongest output at the lowest currents while preserving stability after decades of operation. Firecomms’ robust receiver topologies guarantee error-free reception in high EMI fields.

 
  • Industrial automation:
    In industrial automation and networking applications the factory environment can be viewed in three layers – the device network, the control network and the corporate network. Each layer operates in an environment where significant challenges must be overcome to ensure a reliable communication system. In the face of unwanted interference from ground loops and electromagnetic interference (EMI), equipment designers frequently take advantage of fibre optic connectivity to preserve and protect the equipment and communication links.

 
  • Renewable energy:
    Firecomms’ fibre optic solutions deliver on the harsh demands of the wind and solar power industry, ensuring that the integrity of processed data not be compromised by rugged environments and extreme climates. Firecomms have developed light sources and communications ICs with the deep understanding of the stresses and strains placed on renewable energy applications. Firecomms’ light sources use Resonant Cavity LED (RCLED) technology to ensure the strongest optical output at the lowest currents while preserving stability after decades of operation.

 
  • Smart grid automation:
    Firecomms’ fibre optic solutions deliver on the communication needs in the modern smart grid environment, meeting the needs of both utility managers and equipment designers. As utility managers employ the latest techniques to measure and optimise grid load factors to economically manage electricity demand and supply, equipment designers must ensure that the reliability of control and protection information within the modern transmission and substation network not be compromised by the harsh environment in which these applications operate.

 
  • Electric and diesel trains:
    Firecomms’ fibre optic solutions deliver on the harsh demands of the electric and diesel train industry, ensuring the integrity of control; signalling and passenger data is not compromised by the harsh environment in which these applications operate. Firecomms have developed light sources and communications ICs with the deep understanding of the stresses and strains placed on equipment in electric and diesel trains.
