Water Tight Miniature
Fiber Optic Rotary Joint

Miniature fiber rotary joint
Princetel has broken the record again by pushing the size limit to a new level! The MJX series Fiberoptic Rotary Joints (FORJs) are the world's smallest and lightest. It features extremely low insertion loss and impressive return loss performance for both singlemode and multimode fibers. These rugged units can operate under arctic temperature environment.

The standard packages are dust and water tight for harsh environment. Optional pressure compensation is available in the same package for deep sea applications. FORJs, sometimes called fiber optic slip rings or connectors, allow uninterrupted transmission of an optical signal while rotating along the fiber axis. FORJs are widely used in applications where twist-free fiber cables are essential.
