Hi all,


I'm hoping someone here can help me identify the nearest termination type to the one in the attached images.
We have a plasma machine with a handheld wand/brush.

The fiber in the pictures runs from the wand to the main panel and its only purpose is to carry light, not data or anything data related.
When there is Plasma at the brush head, the fiber passes the light of the plasma to a light activated switch/sensor that tells the panel we have a plume.


this issue is that over time, the corrodes the plastic tip and light doesnt pass as easily as can be seen in one of the pictures.

If we could identify the closest termination type, we could by a hand polishing kit that would allow us to resurface the tip in situ without 2 hours downtime.
the dimensions of the plastic end will easily allow us to polish these multiple times before we have to replace, and at over 200 each that would be a great saving.


Any help greatly appreciated.
