When most people think of fibre optics they immediately assume that it is a modern invention that arose out of the need of faster internet speeds, bigger bandwidth transfer and other advances in modern technology however the development of fiber optics began way before the first computer was even a pipe dream. In fact, it's a technology that dates back to the 1800s. While DCN Electrical aren't old enough to remember back that far. We do have a wealth of knowledge behind us.

So what exactly is fibre optic cabling? For those who are not sure what fibre optics are here is a quick description: Basically a fibre optic cable is a “wire” made out of extruded glass commonly known as silica that is just slightly thicker than a human hair. This fibre is encased in a cladding that reflects the light back into the cable and in turn is encased in a protective coating. If you'd like to know more, call 0404 863 975.
If you have a look around here you will find tons of articles about different types of data cabling services, the types of cables needed for different devices and a lot more details articles with lots of specs so let’s be a bit more specific and look at one main data cabling service that is without a doubt going to play a major role in the future of all telecommunications be it internet, cable TV or basic telephones. Fibre optics. Call us on 0404 863 975 for more information on fibre optic cabling.
Light sensors can also be categorized into two main types. Photo sensors measure the light intensity of visible light and sunlight is made up of only 50% visible light. On the other hand, Radiometers measure total solar radiation, including visible, IR and UV light. It is wise to use photo sensors to sense exterior light, because they are less affected by invisible infrared (IR) and ultraviolet (UV) light. IR and UV are dependent on the moisture or humidity of the atmosphere and cloud cover that is why the sensor level can vary unpredictably in moist weather conditions when IR and UV light are absorbed, but visible light may not be. Sensing visible light only is the best approximation of daylight as seen by the human eye. Thus, photo sensors can already detect if it is already sunset or sunrise.
