Neste próximo dia 26, na capital paulista, o Grupo Furukawa reunirá um time forte de especialistas em inovação para falar ao mercado corporativo nacional. Durante o FIE 2013 (Furukawa Innovation Expo), que acontece em sua 5a edição e pela primeira vez no Brasil, esses líderes trazem suas experiências e visões, apontando caminhos e soluções práticas para aplicações tecnológicas modernas e que podem fazer a diferença no dia a dia das pessoas e das empresas.

O presidente mundial do Grupo Furukawa, Mr. Masao Yoshida, e o seu vice-presidente  corporativo, Mr. Hiroyuki Otake, abrem a sessão de conferências apresentando o evento e as metas e objetivos em inovação pelo Grupo Furukawa nos próximos anos.

Entre os convidados especiais estão Yoichi Iso (Ph.D), e o engenheiro Kazutaka Shimoosako, ambos da gerência geral de vendas corporativas e Marketing do Grupo Furukawa, para falarem sobre “Prospects of Smart Grid in Brazil based on Experiences from Japan.” Segundo os especialistas, o conceito de Smart Grid vai muito além de “medidores inteligentes”. Eles farão uma comparação entre os mercados de Smart Grid do Brasil e do Japão, destacando a importância da solução FIBER MESH como suporte aos sistemas de automação de Distribuição (DAS). Nesta conferência também apresentam a abordagem...

Furukawa Electric Announces Sampling of Micro ITLA For 400 Gb/s Optical Coherent Transmission

18/11/2013

0

ECOC 2013, Booth #525, London, September 23, 2013

Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd. has developed a micro Integratable Tunable Laser Assembly (ITLA), a key component in ultra high-speed optical digital coherent transmission devices operating at 400 gigabits per second (400 Gb/s). This transmission device is now being introduced globally with an initial sampling and full production planned in the near future.

The new micro ITLA product will be exhibited at the European Conference and Exhibition on Optical Communication (ECOC) to be held September 22-26 in London, United Kingdom.

Background of the Development

Global network traffic continues to grow at a phenomenal rate. The telecommunications industry is accelerating the deployment of 100 Gb/s, or even faster 400 Gb/s, transmission systems, and converging on optical digital coherent technology. These new systems use multi-level modulation techniques such as 16 bit Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) and quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK) to improve the special efficiency of the network.

SuperPower wire powers European Union ECCOFLOW Superconducting Fault Current Limiter to improve short circuit strength of power grids

  • SuperPower’s superconducting wire selected to power Nexans-built fault current limiter grid protection device
  • SuperPower wire meets demanding device specifications

September 23, 2013 – Schenectady, NY – SuperPower Inc., a subsidiary of Furakawa Electric Company of Japan, participated in the International Workshop on Superconducting Applications in Power Grids, held in Palma de Mallorca, Spain on September 20, 2013. It was announced at the workshop that SuperPower provided the second-generation high temperature superconducting (2G HTS) wire for the European Union (EU) collaboration program, called Project ECCOFLOW, that will demonstrate a new Superconducting Fault Current Limiter (SFCL) device capable of strengthening and protecting the utility grid.

The ECCOFLOW SFCL was designed, built and tested by a team of fifteen European organizations that include five European utility companies. The device is currently being installed in the Endesa utility grid in Palma, where frequent lightning storms in the fall months are expected to allow the device to fully demonstrate its capability to protect the grid against short circuits. Endesa is one of the largest electric power companies in the world and is Spain’s largest utility.

In Mallorca and other areas of the world, the increase of renewable, decentralized electric power generation often pushes distribution networks to the limits of the short-circuit current capability. In order to meet higher requirements, network operators can either expand the networks or deploy superconducting fault current limiters to enhance the grids’ short-circuit strength.

World first! The successful connection of the floating wind turbine equipment and the substation with the floating submarine cable

18/11/2013

In the “Fukushima Floating Offshore Wind Farm Demonstration project” by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Furukawa Electric and VISCAS Corporation successfully developed and manufactured the special-high voltage riser cable which electrically connects, under the sea, a 2MW floating offshore wind turbine equipment (power generation equipment) and an offshore substation (substation equipment). And Shimizu Corporation successfully installed the cables in the actual sea.

The special-high voltage riser cable is a power cable which floats in the sea and dynamically follows the movements of the floating equipments, the wave and the tide. There is no other example, in the world, of development and manufacturing of this kind of cable and its installation in the actual sea.

Furukawa Electric and Shimizu Corporation are members of the Fukushima Offshore Wind Consortium consisting of 10 companies and a university, entrusted with the “Fukushima Floating Offshore Wind Farm Demonstration Project” from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. In the experimental study, Furukawa Electric is responsible for the overall development of the power transmission system for the floating offshore wind farm and VISCAS Corporation is responsible for the manufacturing and the jointing of the special-high voltage riser cable. Shimizu Corporation, as a joint venture with Nippon Steel & Sumikin Engineering Co., Ltd, is responsible for the towing and the anchoring of the floating offshore wind turbine equipment from Naraha to a sea area a distance of about 20km, the laying and the burying of a submarine cable which connects Naraha and the anchoring sea area and the connection of the power generation equipment and the substation equipment with the riser...

Two new bend-optimized single-mode fiber offerings meet need for tighter bends in inbuilding applications

18/11/2013

0

OFS, a leading designer of optical fibers, cables, and connectivity solutions, has upgraded its single-mode bend-optimized fiber line with two new offerings, available to the market today, responding to customer needs for tighter bends to extend fiber into buildings and living units.

OFS’ new AllWave® FLEX Max Fiber provides less than 0.10 dB of 1550 nm loss at a 5 mm bend radius, with performance superior to and compliant with both the ITU-T G.657.B3 and G.652.D recommendations. The new fiber offers outstanding bending loss performance for demanding in-building and connectivity applications, and is fully compatible with G.652.D fibers. AllWave FLEX Max Fiber complements OFS’ AllWave FLEX+ Fiber, a 7.5 bend radius solution designed for general connectivity applications, and AllWave FLEX Fiber, a 10 mm bend radius fiber for demanding outside plant cable installations.

EZ-Bend® Fiber offers less than 0.20 dB of 1550 nm loss at a 2.5 mm bend radius. The fiber utilizes a patented OFS Labs design which enables tight bend loss performance 3 . 5 times better than competing G.657.B3 fibers. This enables the fiber to support the most demanding in-building and in-living unit deployments using smaller diameter cords conformed to surface contours to minimize visibility and speed installation. EZ-Bend Fiber is superior to and compliant with G.657.B3 and fully compatible with G.652.D fibers. It is the world’s first fully solid-construction fiber to reliably support a 2.5 mm bend radius within a properly engineered cord or cable. “OFS continues to lead the industry with bend-insensitive singlemode fiber offerings,” said Andrew Oliviero, Director of Global...
