Firecomms teams with cable supplier LEONI to develop market for RedLink Fiber Optic LED transceivers

Firecomms Ltd of Cork, Ireland and Tongxiang, China, a manufacturer of fiber-optic solutions and optical transceivers, has teamed with LEONI, a supplier of cables, optical fibers and cable systems for the automotive sector and other industries, to offer its LED transceivers as an alternative to existing market-dominant systems.

Firecomms will collaborate with LEONI Group’s Fiber Optics business unit to develop the market for its RedLink LED-based fiber-optic solution, which is offered with an LC connector and a connector interface that is compatible with Avago Technologies’ Versatile Link interface.

“By collaborating with Firecomms, we can profitably combine the competences of both our companies,” says Andreas Weinert, VP of LEONI Group’s Fiber Optics business unit (which supplies fiber-optic technology for applications in industry, sensor technology and analytics as well as in science, communications and laser medicine). “As a result, we can offer our clients coordinated system solutions with optimized interaction of polymer optical fiber (POF) and polymer clad fiber (PCF) cables, connectors, assemblies and special solutions in fiber-optic technologies,” he adds. “Our goal is to give interested industrial companies the opportunity to qualify an alternative source of supply in order to enhance the security and flexibility of their supply chain.”

Available in mid-2013, Firecomms’ RedLink series will include DC-1Mb, DC-5Mb, DC-10Mb and DC-50Mb transceivers with an operating temperature ranging from -40°C to 85°C.

“The increasing market demand has motivated us to provide our clients a higher degree of freedom in their supply chain,” says Firecomms’ VP of sales & marketing Hugh Hennessy. “We welcome the cooperation with LEONI Fiber Optics, who can complement our product offering with their expertise as a leading supplier of optical fibers, cables and assemblies. The synergy of our RedLink with LEONI’s FiberConnect product lines offers clear cost-benefit advantages for our clients.”
