Ibsen Photonics’ new I-MON Interrogation Monitor enables fast, real-time spectrum monitoring of FBG sensor systems.

Ibsen Photonics, a leading supplier of holographic Phase masks, transmission diffraction gratings and OEM spectrometer modules based on diffraction gratings, has released its new I-MON Interrogation Monitors for FBG Sensor Systems.

The Interrogation Monitors build on Ibsen Diffractor based spectrometer technology, utilizing Ibsen fused silica transmission gratings. This design platform enables Ibsen’s I-MON to offer kHz measurement frequency and compact size as well as low power consumption.

I-MON Product Manager Bjarke Rose comments: “Our Diffractor platform spectrometer modules have been deployed in the field for over 4 years, and so the I-MON has already been embraced by this new market that we have designed the I-MON for.” He adds: “Our flexible technology platform furthermore allows us to rapidly customize the I-MON to customer’s specific application requirements.”

Torben Jacobsen, President and CEO of Ibsen, adds: “The I-MON has been developed in close contact with leading fiber optic sensing companies – Ibsen’s I-MON offers competitiveness by enabling our customers to offer high-performing and cost-effective interrogation solutions.”

Ibsen will be presenting its I-MON products at the coming ECOC, Photonics West and OFC exhibitions over the coming months.
