There are two general types of harnesses available - glass and PMMA, and these are further broken down into end lit or side emitting types.
Harnesses comprise one or more tails (or cables) of fiber optics which transmit the light from the illuminator over a distance.
The tails are joined together in a connector (the common end) which plugs into the illuminator, and are normally loose at the other end. Harnesses may be terminated with ferrules or other end fittings at the loose end depending on the type of fiber used.
Fiber optic harnesses are custom made to your specification or to the lengths required for your specific job.
End lit glass harnesses offer superior light transmission over distances up to around 10 metres.
Glass sideglow harnesses for decorative lighting and special effect use.
A range of sheathed and unsheathed PMMA harnesses in various diameters.
We offer a range of PMMA harnesses for sensory and decorative use.
The common end is used to bind all the fiber tails together in a single connection which is then plugged into an illuminator.
Ferrules provide a sealed end termination to a fiber tail and allow end fittings to be attached.
