High-tech in the Netherlands

High-tech in the Netherlands

Fibotec is on the road in the Netherlands twice within half a year. After a booth at Precision Fair, ´s Hertogenbosch*, in November 2022, the company will be present as part of a workshop and as a participant in the industrial exhibition during the "Measuring by Light" conference at TU Delft. Fibotec is Silver Sponsor of the International Meeting on Optical Metrology and Industrial Applications at the end of March 2023.

The Netherlands is traditionally a leading high-tech location in both science and industry, and optical measurement methods play a key role in this. In addition, the Netherlands and Germany are not only in this time of change in the international supply chains, but have long been closely intertwined economic partners with goods flows in both directions.

Fibotec develops and produces electronic, opto-electronic and fiber optic assemblies and system hardware for customers who manufacture measurement systems that are used in a wide variety of markets. Biotechnology and medical technology, automation, contactless optical measuring instruments, LIDAR and OTDR, as well as distributed fiber sensors stand for these applications.

* Attending the exhibition was partially funded by the State of Thuringia. This fund was cofinanced by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

On (foreign trade) course


The participants of a very small, 3-day delegation trip from Thuringia in Switzerland were anything but “inactive”: Organized by LEG Thuringia and the Chamber of Commerce Switzerland-Germany, Fibotec Fiberoptics was able to make interesting new contacts with companies in Switzerland in very targeted individual discussions - and could intensify existing customer relations.

This very targeted and individual part of the trip was rounded off by a joint supporting program, which included discussions at the Paul Scherrer Institute and a detailed tour of the neutron source (image: conversion of an experiment) and the synchrotron.

The intensification of the relationship to markets such as Switzerland, the Netherlands, Israel or China, which Fibotec has carried out in the past 12 months, is part of a changed strategy and reaction to the changed framework conditions in the global economy. In the course of this, new exhibition locations were tested and business trips for increased initial contacts were undertaken.

The trip was supported by fundings of the Freistaat Thüringen (EFRE funds).

Thuringia State Premier visits Fibotec


„How in details is digital economy working in small and medium size companies?“ was one of the questions that caused State Premier Ramelow to deal with this trend within the 3rd week of his summer tour. The decision having Fibotec Fiberoptics taken into his schedule is linked with the competence of the company as a development house, and producer of sensing products.

Talking about „Big Data“, „Industry 4.0“ or the „Internet of Things“ then sensors are the beginning of the process chain: It is needed to gain the mass of data first, and interaction of robots with the environment is not possible without sensors. Fibotec Fiberoptics is using electronic, opto-electronic and fiber-optic sensors to build mostly customer-specific sensing solutions. Standard products exist, such as gas and fire detectors ( The focus in all products, including general sensing, gas- and fire sensing, and fiber-optic sensing, is on custom subsystem in partnership with instrument and system manufacturers.

dB-meter as an instrument at Photonics West


Fibotec introduces the dB-Meter Instrument as a further stage of the dB-Meter module, a proven device for several years. The module is the preferred solution for online surveillance of insertion loss (IL) and return loss (RL), and for testing transient light change up to 10 kHz data recognition. The new instrument with a fast digital display is a table top device for lab and production use.

The dB-Meter is available as a 1-channel and as a 2-channel version. Optional light sources can be integrated (customer specific), so that IL-testing can be done with this instrument at one or two wavelenghts. Max. input power is 2 mW, the saturation input power is factory set to optimize the dynamic range according to the integrated light source(s). Dynamic range of the dB-Meter is min. 70 dB, 0.01 dB display resolution, and the expected stability of typical custom light sources is < 0.1 dB (@15 min after warm-up). An additional option is an integrated RL-test (2-channel version only, with one light source). An external supply powers the instrument @ < 1 A V DC (11-13 V). The display shows absolute power and loss (zeroing at the front panel). Besides a front panel operation the dB-Meter can be controlled through a serial interface (USB). This enables customers to write software to integrate the dB-Meter in their own environment.
