Paper Abstract

The lightguide technology has several unique fetures that open up new possibilities of its applications in alverse environments. These factors make this technology attractive in comparizon with classical metal cable based and radio technologies. In the paper we will review relevant works carried out in this country, namely: techno-logical specialization processess for industrial application oriented optical fibres and cables, classification of adverse environments and design rules for cables and optoelectronics, description of our technological facility, fiber optic health protection systems in adverse environments, example of real life applications of ruggedized fibre optic systems in HV/HP environments, ionizing radiation environments, mining, railway and industrial robotics.
