Certification opens new markets for Micron Optics Fiber Bragg Grating Based Optical Sensing Systems.
On October 7, 2010 — Micron Optics, Inc., a leading provider of innovative equipment for fiber optic sensing and laser imaging, announced that its dynamic Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) optical sensing systems was certified for use in explosive environments according to the International Electrotechnical Commission’s Certification to Standards relating to Equipment for use in Explosive Atmospheres (IECEX). Micron Optics now offers dynamic optical sensing instruments, modules, and sensors for continuous long-term use in the presence of explosive atmosphere. The DNV 10 ATEX 82688 certification was conferred by the professional testing and qualification firm of Det Norske Veritas AS.

With this international certification, global customers working with explosive environments can be assured that Micron Optics’ dynamic optical sensing systems meet the IEC’s standards for intrinsically safe products. Intrinsically safe products receive their classification because both their power use and power storage properties are below the levels required to set off an explosion in a hazardous area.
