The Model FOL-150 Fibre Optic Light System is a practical, cost effective solution for illuminating the interior of anechoic chambers with cool white light. The system is a logical choice for installing in new chambers, or retrofitting existing chambers that have older, RF-emitting metal halide bulbs. The benefits of the FOL-150 system include minimized chamber penetrations, removal of potential EMI sources, reduced maintenance, and better light distribution in the chamber.
The system’s electrically powered light source is mounted externally, and transmits light into the chamber with low side-loss fibre optic cable. This method eliminates compromising the integrity of the test environment from EMI sources such as AC current, ballast, or arcing bulb elements.
Each Model FOL-150 Fibre Optic Light System illuminates up to three lights in an 18 GHz rated chamber, and up to four lights in a 10 GHz rated chamber. Each fibre optic bundle entering the chamber is terminated with a non-reflective fused finish that provides a 60° light spread.
