Fiber Optic Rotary Joints - Performance and Application Highlights

A fiber optic rotary joint (FORJ) is a device that allows an optical signal to be transmitted across the interface between a continuously rotating platform and its stationary support structure.

FORJ applications are on the rise with the increasing adoption of fiber optic communication transmission lines. Today, swivels, radar pedestals, wind turbines, armored vehicle turrets, and electro-optic sensors incorporate FORJs to handle optical signals for improved performance. Often, these devices are used in parallel with slip rings to handle electrical power and signals, offering practically unlimited bandwidth. Moreover, FORJs feature sophisticated technology and versatile design options for high-speed transmission of digital and analog data in a wide range of industry applications.

Understanding the different types of channels available, key differences between analog and digital data transmission and other critical performance factors is essential to choosing the right FORJ.
