FBG Interrogation Monitors by Ibsen Photonics offer fast, real-time spectrum monitoring
23 Mar 2006
Ibsen has developed Interrogation Monitors that are ideally suited for a broad range of applications in FBG sensor interrogation systems through a unique combination of very fast measurement frequency, low power consumption and compact size.
The Ibsen I-MON Interrogation Monitor is based on the Ibsen Diffractor technology platform. Ibsen Diffractor technology combines fused silica transmission diffraction gratings and patent pending optical designs. The Ibsen I-MON splits the wavelength spectrum spatially to allow for parallel processing of the individual FBG sensor peaks. The FBG sensor peaks are measured by a customized diode array, and the embedded electronics provides digital data readout. The I-MON Interrogation Monitors offer straightforward integration and meet industrial qualification standards. The compact size and simple electronics interface makes the I-MON Interrogation Monitors ideal for direct mounting on the customer's interrogation system control PCB. The I-MON Interrogation Monitors offer real-time spectrum monitoring of Fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors. Very high measurement frequency allows kHz full spectrum readout and the compact size and low power consumption reduce operational costs for customers for whom space and power savings are important. The Ibsen I-MON Interrogation Monitor is additionally available as an Evaluation Kit including evaluation board, test software, data acquisition board and cable providing plug-and-play operation. Key specifications: Measurement frequency: 2500 Hz Power consumption: <0.25 W Size (LxWxD): 70 mm x 46 mm x 18 mm About Ibsen Ibsen Photonics is building its portfolio of Diffractor based spectrometer modules on more than 10 years' experience in diffractive optics. Ibsen Photonics also is a leading supplier of holographic Phase masks and transmission diffraction gratings. Ibsen Photonics welcomes partnerships with original equipment manufacturers based on the Ibsen Diffractor technology platform. Ibsen will be presenting its I-MON products at OFC.
