Fiber-Optic Communications


Measurement data is transmitted through state-of-the-art fiber-optic cables. The benefits are numerous compared to other forms of data transmission.

  • Fiber-optics are immune to electrical interference
  • Minimal attenuation of light through fibers
  • Fast messaging over enormous distances
  • Radiation hard fiber materials








Legacy


Our new products will sometimes replace older ones. We call these older devices "legacy". Although we still make legacy devices, we no longer recommend using them in new designs.

We will continue to support legacy products with software and hardware fixes.
