Industrial Process Fibers

FTO offers years of experience in the manufacture of process control cables for diverse applications.

Available in lengths of up to 500 meters with either standard or custom connectors, these cables offer low loss, high reliability and ease of installation for single or multichannel requirements. Coupling to reflectance, immersion, transmission and ATR probes, UV/VIS, Raman, or FT-NIR spectrometers, and scientific instrumentation, cables are built to customer specifications.

For use from benign conditions to those which require extreme temperature, chemical, moisture and sunlight resistance or for shock and vacuum applications, these cables are designed to meet your environment.
