fiber opticFiber optic cables are use in a large variety of applications all around the world. They are specially designed cables which contain more than one optical fibers to create a cable which can send and receive data. There are many different uses of these cables and here are just some of the uses that you may not have known about.

Uses Of Fiber Optic Cables?

There are many different uses of fiber optic cables which are designed to promote high operation in a number of applications. Here are just some of the uses of where this form of cabling may be in use.

Defense/Government

Government and defense agencies use fiber optic cables as hydrophones which are used for SONAR or seismic applications. This is generally used as wiring in submarines, aircrafts and other larger vehicles. Government agencies also may use fiber optic cables in field networking applications.

Medical:

Medical breakthroughs have come a long way and the use of fiber optic cables is also a large evolutionary success for a variety of medical applications. Fiber optic cables are used for lasers for surgery purposes, imaging tools, and light guides as well.

Data Storage:

One of the more common uses for fiber optic cables is the use for data transmission. These cables are designed to provide high data transmission properties which allows for the data to be sent from point A and received at point B in a fast and uninterrupted way making for cleaner data storage, viewing and usage.

Telecommunications:

Fiber optic cables are also used for transmitting and receiving purposes to help create a more reliable application. These cables are laid and installed and can provide clear noise transmission each and every time.

Industrial:

Lastly these types of cables are also used for imaging purposes in hard to reach applications. These small cables can be used as a sensory device to measure pressure and temperature. It is used in wiring in automobiles and can provide an easy to install cable which is small and compact in tight spaces.
