Princetel, Inc. is a dynamic technology manufacturer based in the greater Princeton area in the state of New Jersey. The company manufactures fiber optic inter-connect products with the main focus on fiber optic rotary joints (FORJs), electrical slip rings, and video/data MUX/DMUX fiber media converters for the geophysical, military, biomedical, wind energy, broadcasting, robotic, and communications markets. Founded in the fall of 2000, the company has transformed itself into a major force in fiber rotary technology innovations.
Princetel offers fiberoptic rotary joints with 1-12 fibers as standard products. They can be either SM, MM fiber, or the mix of the two. They are designed for rugged environments such as extreme temperatures, humidity, mechanical disturbances, and water submersion (pressure compensation). 13 to 60 channels are offered as custom solutions. Fiber optic rotary joints (FORJs) are key coupling devices in winches, robotic vehicles, wind turbines, medical OCT systems, satellite antennae, high-definition broadcasting systems, and submarines. Princetel's FORJ products are designed to comply with the popular standards Telcordia GR1209 and GR1021 in key areas for reliability. All models meet or exceed MIL-STD-810G and MIL-STD-167-1A for shock and vibration.
A full line of electrical slip rings are designed to match Princetel's standard FORJs. Unique features such as water seal, pressure compensation, and explosion proof are available. High-performance hybrid electrical/optical sliprings are common integrated products in applications where both power and telemetry pass through the rotation junction.
Princetel's highly integrated MUX/DMUX fiber media converters are ideal for ROVs and other robotic vehicles. Standard video, serial data, high definition video, Ethernet, and CWDM solutions are among the standard offerings. This product category will experience steady growth as the company gradually widening the variety of card types.
An award-winning hand-crank fiber polisher highlights Princetel's fiber polishing machines that meet both field and production needs for fiber connector and ferrule polishing. Our portable polishing machines (up to 2 connectors/ferrules) come with either an unique hand crank, an indispensable safety feature to eliminate fire hazards in oil and gas operations, or a 6-12 VDC motor, which can be powered through a wall adapter or car cigarette lighter. The production polishing machine (up to 12 connectors/ferrules) features stainless chassis, center pressure, digitally controlled speed/force/time, speed/force ramping, and universal fixture.
