The system is made up of an optical fibre transmitter and an optical fibre receiver.
The optical fibre transmitter converts the electrical signals of an encoder into optical fibre signals. A simple glass fibre allows reliable transmission up to distances of 1500 m.
The receiver module converts the optical signals back into electrical signals.
The modules are available in various level and power supply voltage variants.
