FeaturesVacuum flange type KF40 with two integrated fiber cables
- Based on small flange KF40 (stainless steel)
- Suitable for vacuums down to 10-7 mbar
- Two integrated fiber cables PMC, SMC or MMC
- Different connector types
with two-fold fiber cable
The two-fold vacuum feed-throughs made by Schäfter+Kirchhoff are equipped with two identical or two different fiber cables. The fibers can be polarization-maintaining, single-mode or multimode fibers. The double vacuum feed-throughs are suitable for vacuums down to 10-7 mbar and are supplied with a small flange KF40 (DIN 28403 and ISO 2861, stainless steel). Maximum temperature range is -10 °C - 70 °C.
End-to-end fiber cable
All vacuum feed-throughs are supplied with non-exchangable, continous, end-to-end fiber cables. That means there is no additional fiber connection (mating) at the vacuum flange.
On the vacuum side, the fiber cables are equipped with Ø 900 μm buffer made of Hytrel, Nylon or Tefzel. The parts of the fiber cables outside the vacuum, have a Ø 3 mm cable with Kevlar strain-relief with bend protection both at the fiber connector and the flange.
Polarization-maintaining fiber cables and single-mode fiber cables can be equipped with end caps for reducing the power density at the fiber end-faces.
For single-mode fiber cables, the connector away from the vacuum can be core-aligned as an option.
As an option the connector can be made of amagnetic Titanium (all fiber types, but connector type FC only).
