We at OFS believe that with great power comes great responsibility. Transmission schemes of High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) are more efficient and have a greater capability than AC systems. If not properly harnessed, elevated amounts of charged energy can be dangerous. The proper protection of your conductive materials also ensures electronic noise will not scramble networks and IT systems. Imagine the ability to enjoy high NA optical fiber that captures more input power with very low bend-induced attenuation, and high coupling efficiency.OFS offers a full slate of solutions for your HVDC needs. HCS® (Hard-Clad Silica) is a problem-solving, polymer coated optical fiber system invented in the early years of the optical fiber industry. The revolutionary GiHCS® (Graded-Index, Hard-Clad Silica) optical fiber solution from OFS provides the end-user more bandwidth capability along with the added benefit of easy-to-use HCS optical fibers. OFS has developed and proven the robustness and simplicity of using optical fibers in a wide variety of non-traditional applications.

Part of the HCS fiber family, these fibers are compatible with crimp and cleave termination as well as traditional epoxy/polish connector systems.
