The FO228, a single-channel multimode fiber optic rotary joint (FORJ), is passive and bidirectional, and maintain the benefits of fiber optics (such as high bandwidth and EMI immunity) in systems with a rotational interface.
This cost-efficient FORJ model is designed for applications having moderate demands for optical performance and life. Due to its lens-less design, it can operate at any wavelength supported by the fiber used in the assembly.
The FORJ can be combined with our electrical and fluid slip rings, giving a single, compact package for optical signals, electrical power and fluid transfer.
Provides rotary coupling for a multimode fiber link
Can be combined with our electrical slips and fluid unions
Alternative drive coupling and mounting arrangements are available (consult factory for specification details)

Moog Australia | Precision Motion Control Products
Moog Inc. is a worldwide designer, manufacturer, and integrator of precision motion control products and systems. Moog’s high-performance systems control military and commercial aircraft, satellites and space vehicles, launch vehicles, missiles, industrial machinery, wind energy, marine applications, and medical equipment.
Over fifty years ago, we started as designer and supplier of aircraft and missile components. Today, our motion control technology enhances performance in a variety of markets and applications, from commercial aircraft cockpits, to power-generation turbines, to Formula One racing, to medical infusion systems.
Our history begins with our founder, William C. Moog – inventor, entrepreneur and visionary. In 1951, Bill Moog developed the electro-hydraulic servo valve, a device that translates tiny, electrical impulses into precise and powerful movement. In July of 1951, Bill, his brother Arthur, and Lou Geyer, rented a corner of the abandoned Proner Airport in East Aurora and formed the Moog Valve Company.
The first order for four valves was sold to Bendix Aviation. Larger orders followed from Boeing and Convair. The servovalve revolutionized the aerospace industry and led to the creation of Moog Inc. By 1954, Moog valves were standard equipment on about half of all US fighter planes and more than 70% of all guided missiles.
The introduction of the industrial valve was a success, and by 1960 total sales had grown to more than $10 million. In the aerospace arena, in one of our proudest achievements, our engineers designed and manufactured the actuators on the Saturn C-5 rocket that carried Neil Armstrong to his historic first step on the moon in July 1969.
