Windpower Controls

Wind turbine designers face many challenges in ensuring optimal system reliability and successful cable installation — electrical noise, widely fluctuating temperatures, high vibration, exposure to industrial oils, the need for rapid restoration of damaged cabling, and the ability to perform simpler modifications. OFS has engineered industrial fiber optic products to help mitigate these challenges.

Offering the durability needed for these critical applications, our versatile GiHCS® Industrial Cabling Solution provides seamless data integration within the control system and helps provide real-time operational data.

OFS Crimp & Cleave LC connectors allow for plug-in interoperability with common SFP (LC) transceivers, as well as reliable transmission of Ethernet data.

Solar Controls

The engineers at OFS understand the needs of both photovoltaic (PV) and solar thermal farms, and we recognize the importance of reliable tracking of the sun in order to optimize the conversion of solar energy into electricity. Ruggedized fiber optic connections and easy-to-use field connectorization are crucial for the dielectric data links required in these applications.

Our GiHCS® Industrial Cabling Solution, with Crimp & Cleave LC connector products, allows for quick, simple installation and repair of solar networks. The GiHCS system also allows for wide operating temperatures in exposed installations, is suitable for harsh environments, and features all dielectric, lightning-resistant designs. Our easy-to-learn, easy-to-use crimp and cleave LC connectors are compatible with SFP (LC) transceivers.
