Firecomms' RedLink optical transceivers for industrial applications enter full production

Firecomms Ltd of Cork, Ireland and Tongxiang, China, which manufactures fiber-optic solutions and optical transceivers, has announced full production and shipping of its new RedLink line of fiber-optic transmitters and receivers for the industrial command, control and communications markets.

Specifically designed to be compatible with Versatile Link connectors from Avago Technologies, the RedLink family of products includes transmitters and receivers that operate from DC-1Mb, DC-5Mb, DC-10Mb and DC-50Mb.

Firecomms says it puts its RedLink devices through thousands of hours of testing to guarantee extended lifetimes at high temperatures. Due to the firm’s unique resonant-cavity LED technology (which keeps the transmitters burning brightly after several decades) and the monolithic architecture of Firecomms’ fully integrated receivers, users can design for the toughest of applications, says Firecomms.

“Products operate in the harshest of environments and are regularly exposed to extremes of temperature, climate and electromagnetic interference,” notes CEO Hsin Chia. “Not only must our devices operate within these harsh environments, they must operate effectively for many, many years.” The milestone is “a reflection of the thousands of hours our team has invested in meeting our customers’ launch plans,” he adds.

“Our new RedLink devices have been ordered by some of the world’s largest industrial conglomerates for use in applications such as electric trains, high-voltage grid stations, wind and solar energy converters, mining, oil and gas exploration, and motor drives,” says Hugh Hennessy, VP of worldwide sales & marketing. “We are pleased with the positive response we received to bring a reliable source to market and plan to build on these successful deployments with continued innovation and expansion of our RedLink portfolio.”

Firecomms uses in-house photonics, and transmitter and receiver chips together with an internal production facility to guarantee the quality of its supply chain. The firm says that its vertical integration around the core technologies used in fiber-optic transceivers enables it to respond flexibly to customer demands while maintaining tight control of major cost drivers.

In addition to the RedLink family of products, Firecomms produces a range of integrated 100Mbps to 500Mbps transceivers in its OptoLock and compact LC connector systems for higher-speed communications links in the medical, industrial and consumer home networking markets.
