Both the PC-FFB-780 and the PC-FFB-1550 come with an included dust cover. The PC-FFB-780 with its dust cover is shown above.
Thorlabs' FiberBench Polarization Controller Kits allows you to transform an arbitrary input polarization state into an arbitrary output polarization state. These controllers use two FiberPorts mounted on either side of a Single-Axis FiberBench with HCA3 Wall Plates. Any input polarization state can be deterministically rotated into a known output polarization state using a quarter-wave, half-wave, and another quarter-wave plate mounted (in this order) between the two FiberPorts. Each plate can be precisely and continuously rotated through 360°.
Advantages over Traditional Fiber Paddle Controllers
Thorlabs' Smart Pack Initiative is aimed at minimizing waste while providing adequate protection for our products. By eliminating any unnecessary packaging, implementing design changes, and utilizing eco-friendly materials, this initiative seeks to reduce the environmental impact of our product packaging.
The updated PC-FFB-780 and PC-FFB-1550 packaging primarily consists of recycled paper and cardboard and weighs 7.51% less than the original packaging. This weight change results in a 0.34 kg reduction in travel-based CO2 emissions per year, based on typical product sales.
As we move through our product line, we will indicate re-engineered, eco-friendly packaging with our Smart Pack logo, which can be seen above.
