It is not commonly known that Plastic Optical Fibre (POF) pre-dates traditional glass by approximately 7 years. In recent times POF has become more popular in the corporate industry, especially on runs less than 100 meters.

The advantages of Plastic Optical Fibre are:

  • Resilient to stress and strain produced during bending
  • Cost effective
  • Easy to install
  • Safer
  • Requires less power

Very few data cabling organisations are proficient in the use and installation of POF. However at ACCL we fully understand all aspects of Plastic Optical Fibre.
