Start-up: Fibergy

The start-up company Fibergy from J. Leuthold’s group is anticipated for 2015.

Fibergy introduces a revolutionary all-optical remote powering technology for electrically operated sensors based on fiber optics instead of copper wiring. In cooperation with IPQ, research is conducted to develop reliable solutions for industrial applications facing serious challenges with their power infrastructure due to lightning strikes and EMI effects.
Delivering power over a fiber optic cable in addition to high bit-rate data transmission has significant benefits including:

  • Full galvanic isolation
  • Immunity to EMI, RF and high magnetic fields
  • Power delivery at difficult-to-access sites
  • Error free operation at harsh environments
