Ibsen Photonics has released release its I-MON 850 interrogation monitor for fast real-time monitoring of fibre Bragg grating sensors operating in the 850nm wavelength range. The I-MON 850 is a natural addition to the company’s existing portfolio of interrogation monitors in the 1,310 and 1,550nm wavelength ranges.
Ibsen reports that it has seen an increasing interest in fibre sensing at 850nm. The new interrogation monitor provides capability at this wavelength while also offering scan speeds of 10kHz. The monitor is based on the same compact, highly efficient, robust, and athermal design as Ibsen’s other I-MON products.
