Paper Abstract

Information systems using optical waveguides consist of electro/optical and opto/ electrical converters, the fiber optic cable and connectors. The paper describes the application requirements determining the scheme of a signal transmission link via optical waveguides, as e.g. kind of transmission, bandwidth, transmission length and number of channels. All the fiber optic components are developed as parts of a construction kit. Corresponding to the application requirements these components can be combined to different signal transmission links. In detail the realization of one fiber optic link in the field of non telephone application is given. For the electro/optical control of thyristors in a high voltage direct current transmission plant, especially the undisturbed signal transmission at high potential differences is required. A digital transmission system up to 1 Mbit/s is re-alized with available LEDs and PHDs and with fiber optic bundles having a transmission loss of 1 dB/km.
