Power over Fiber (PoF)   /   PoFP Series Power over Fiber Platform

The Power over Fiber (PoF) technology is a novel power delivery system which delivers electrical power by sending laser light through lightweight, non-conductive fiber optic cable to a remote photovoltaic receiver or photovoltaic power converter (PPC) to power remote sensors or electrical devices. MHGP’s innovative PoF solution provides three major benefits: (1) noise immunity, (2) voltage isolation, and (3) spark free operation. The PoF Platform (PoFP) helps designers build their own PoF based product for unique applications. It includes an Arduino based, easy-to-use hardware and software platform that controls a class 1 compliant power interface module (PIM) and a sensor interface module (SIM). The PIM sends laser power to the SIM, and communicates with the SIM optically via a transmitter and receiver. The SIM provides completely voltage isolated, conditioned DC power up to ~250mW at 3.3V and 5V to customers’ electronics, such as sensors. The PoFP aims to make PoF more accessible to inventors, makers, and research teams, which will dramatically reduce development time, budgets, and the technical risk of innovative PoF products.

Power over Fiber Platform Features:

  • Flexible Arduino-based platform
  • Provides voltage isolated power
  • Bidirectional noise free communication
  • Plug and play interface
  • Class 1 laser safety compliant
  • Up to 0.25W electrical output at 3.3V and 5V from the SIM
