Laser connector assembly with high power handling


Fiberguide Industries, Stirling, NJ, a supplier of optical fibers for industrial laser beam delivery, has introduced a new high-power keyed connector to deliver "unprecedented" power handling up to 750 W for laser cutting, drilling, marking, and welding.

The FD-80 connector assembly is constructed from all-silica optical fibers with core sizes from 100-1500 μm. An epoxy-free cantilevered nose design isolates fibers from the connector, allowing safe dissipation of thermal energy without burning the surrounding material. The connectors have a laser polished fiber face to promote better power transmission and reduce risk of damage to the end face.

The connectors are available with anti-reflective coating and various sheathing options to best fit environmental conditions. Optional integrated mode stripping removes stray cladding power for systems requiring enhanced performance.
