Rugged transceivers

The most rugged high-performance embedded transceivers.

Reflex Photonics' products are intrinsically robust making them the ideal choice for the most demanding environment. The sealed optical path guarantees optimum performances over high temperature and humidity ranges. LightABLE based products can be surface mounted and meet the strictest shock and vibration requirements for industrial and military applications.

All Reflex Photonics components undergo a severe test program.
