Princetel manufactures fiber optic rotary joints (fiber optic slip rings) to serve the geophysical industry. The company plays a key role as a supplier of electro-optic coupling devices to meet the ever-increasing demand for higher bandwidth for maritime applications.

The Tech:

Princetel’s line of fiber optic rotary joints has grown to cover more than a dozen models, one with three dozen channels in one device. Fiber channels from 1 to 12 remain the standard offering. These can be either SM or MM fiber, or a mix of the two. They are designed for rugged environments like extreme temperatures, humidity, mechanical disturbances, and water submersion (pressure compensation). Fiber optic rotary joints (FORJs) are key coupling devices in winches, robotic vehicles, wind turbines, medical OCT systems, satellite antennae, high-definition broadcasting systems, and submarines. Princetel’s FORJ products are designed to comply with the popular standards, Telcordia GR1209 and GR1021 in key areas of reliability. All models meet or far exceed MIL-STD-810G and MIL-STD-167-1A for shock and vibration.

The Company:
Princetel is a small for-profit social enterprise that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvement in human and environmental well-being. It is passionate about providing a sanctuary for its employees, creating the best fiber rotary joint products.
