The Fiber Optic Microphone System consists of a FOM fiber optic microphone connected to an electronic interface control unit through fiber optic cable. Both an FOM microphone and an interface control unit such as the MRI1-DRz or similar are required for operation and are included in the Model FOM-30-System.
Microphone and electronic interface can alternatively be ordered separately on the next page.
A optional microphone holder/positioner and an expanded warranty are available on the FOM accessories page.
Combined FOM microphone and Driver System
Our standard length of fiber optic cable is 30m but custom length are available to meet application needs. There are no metallic or electronic components in the microphone itself and no electronic currents or signals are present in the microphone itself making it suitable for use in the bore of an MRI system.
The Fibersound Fiber Optic Microphone provides interference free communication in electrically noisy environments. The microphone uses a patented optical system that converts acoustic signals directly to a modulated light intensity signal. Since no electrical signals generated in the microphone or the fiber optic cables the fiber optic microphone provides secure and interference free communication in chemically or electrically hazardous conditions.
