June 30, 2004 Marlboro, MA -- SENKO Advanced Components Inc. now offers a Fiber Optic Components Education Kit for beginner to graduate-level photonic students looking to develop their knowledge of optics in practical applications. The kit also provides technical personnel with easy-to-understand yet comprehensive explanations of fiber-optic components as standalone units and in the context of operation.
The kit consists of ten self-enclosed component modules. The modules form the basic building blocks of a fiber-optic network, providing a hands-on approach to learning for telecom, sensing, and other photonics-related applications.
Unlike the unprotected components found in other educational kits on the market, the SENKO kit components are sealed within a robust plexi casing to withstand the harsh treatment of the classroom, explain SENKO representatives. All components are fully functional and may be used and re-used in a variety of configurations. The front of module is transparent for easy viewing, while the back of module is clearly labeled with a functional diagram.
Each kit is equipped with a user manual containing complete documentation for the component modules, including operation and applications. The manual also includes suggested activities, preview and review questions.
