Plastic Optical Fiber Connector for Point Sensor

Currently Viewing:

AFBR-S10PS011Z is a miniature connector used to connect a duplex POF cable to the point sensor. The special POF-based sensor design allows the system engineer to avoid any galvanic contact between the arc flash area and the detection electronics.

The point sensor consists of two parts: the sensor head AFBR-S10PS010Z and the connector AFBR-S10PS011Z. Both AFBR-S10PS010Z and AFBR-S10PS011Z are part of Broadcom’s comprehensive arc flash detection portfolio. In combination with Broadcom’s sensor transceiver AFBR-S10TR001Z, they are intended to be used for the detection of arc flash events in electrical power grids.
