While fibre-optic cables may have potential advantages over ordinary electric cables, for the electronics enthusiast it is probably their novelty value that makes them worthy of exploration. Fibre-optic cables provide an innovative interesting alternative to electric cables, but inmost cases they also represent a practical approach to the problem. Although this subject is not one that has been totally ignored in the electronics press, practical designs using fibre-optics have so far been a bit "thin on the ground". This book provides a number of tried and tested circuits for projects that utilise fibre-optic cables.

The projects include:

  • simple audio links
  • F.M. audio links
  • P.W.M. audio links
  • simple d.c. links
  • P.W.M. d.c. link
  • P.W.M. motor speed control
  • RS232C data links
  • loop alarms
  • R.P.M. meter

All the components used in these designs are readily available, none of them require the constructor to take out a second mortgage.
