Firecomms unveils InGaN vertical transmitters and receivers

The firm has announced the availability of its full line of indium gallium nitride RedLink transmitters and receivers in vertical style packages
In response to customer demand for versatility in the RedLink connection styles, Firecomms is now offering the complete product family in both horizontal and vertical packaging options.

Firecomms RedLink fibre optic components are frequently installed in large industrial enclosures where final cable assembly can be difficult when the products are horizontally aligned with the internal PCB. 

In order to provide flexibility for both the final installation on the factory floor and end user maintenance, Firecomms has expanded its RedLink product range to include vertically aligned transmitters and receivers.

“RedLink products are frequently found in large scale industrial equipment such as wind turbines, locomotive traction control units or grid tied converters,” says Hugh Hennessy, Firecomms Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “As manufacturers of these appliances appreciate any opportunity to reduce final assembly and maintenance cycle times, we are happy to respond to our customers' demands for this greater flexibility by further enhancing our product offering.”

Drop-in compatible with the Versatile Link range of products, Firecomms RedLink product line extends the company’s well-known capabilities for high-speed POF transceivers and interface innovation into highly reliable industrial grade optical transmitters and receivers. 

The RedLink product line includes DC-1 Mb, DC-5 Mb, DC-10 Mb, and DC-50 Mb transmitters and receivers, all rated at the extended industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C for use in even the harshest industrial environments.

All vertical RedLink devices are now available for sampling through Firecomms' sales offices and distribution channels.
