Optically powered conventional instrumentation with optical fibre links combines advantages of a familiar technology and that of fibre optics. For safety and cost effectiveness considerations reducing power consumption of the optically operated conventional instrumentation is important. Development of conventional pressure sensors and actuators to suit low-power operation is presented. Power budget of optically activated instrumentation systems is discussed. 1.
