Flexible Fiber Power Delivery for CO₂ laser

Main features:

  • The most flexible cables for CO₂-laser power delivery
  • Stable transmission under the bending
  • SMART-technology to suppress Fresnel reflection losses
  • Transmitted power up to 40 W

* see downloads to check effective NA & transmission vs cable

art photonics offers High Power Fiber Cables for flexible delivery of  CO₂-laser radiation. Polycrystalline InfraRed (PIR-) Fiber Cables provide stable power transmittance under the bending  that is an important advantage as compared to hollow waveguides. Special SMART treatment of PIR-fiber ends suppresses Fresnel reflection to increase output power by 10-12%.
