Year Founded:

NEO Monitors was founded in 2003 and is a subsidiary of Norsk Elektro Optikk AS (NEO), who has been active in the field of laser-based gas analysis since the late 80ies. NEO Monitors is committed to market the gas analysers and dust monitors developed by NEO and provide service and support to our customers and distributors world-wide. We are an originator of laser-based gas analysis and today one of the largest commercial supplier of TDL gas analysers with successful installations in more than 40 countries.

Our owner Norsk Elektro Optikk is one of the principal Norwegian research companies in the field of electro optics. NEO is consistently involved in research projects with industrial partners or research institutes, aiming for further improvement of our monitors and new solutions to gas measurement challenges.

Our mission is:
To maintain our technological edge in the field of laser based gas and dust monitors and be the world-leading supplier.

The first laser light in Norway was generated in 1962 by Tycho Jæger. When the first working laser was reported in 1960, it was described as “a solution looking for a problem“. Electro Optics in Norway saw the break of light when Mr. Jæger saw this as the solution rather than the opposite.

All oil companies operating in the North Sea from the 1970’s made huge investments in R&D and NEOs first business approach was to specialize on underwater optics. But the timing was not ideal and we went from the bottom of the ocean to top of the universe: In 1985/86 R&D investments from oil companies dropped significantly due to low oil prices. Simultaneously The Norwegian Space Center (NSC) and the European Space Agency (ESA) saw NEO’s potential and included our experts in several projects. MIPAS was the first Michelson-Interferometer that was specified to have a frequency reference source based on a frequency stabilized diode laser at 1300 nm. MIPAS was launched into space in 2002 and is still working in orbit.

Later Underwater optics came back when Statoil wanted improved quality control of pipelines by making regular inspections of ”free spans” and corrosion. Statoil sponsored the development of tools for external as well as internal inspection of the pipelines.

In the 1990’s NEO entered into the exciting world of Gas Spectroscopy and became one of the leading suppliers of Gas Analyzers based on Tunable Diode Laser Spectroscopy (TDLS). We have not looked back since and can claim:

  • More than 9500 instruments sold and installed in over 40 countries
  • More than 30 different gases measured
  • More than 60 different lasers used
  • More than 100 different instrument configurations for different applications manufactured

A dynamic past has allowed us to become a highly agile partner that can adapt and be flexible towards needs in the market. Our history has taught us that we always have to:

  • Discuss new applications on a daily basis
  • Keep challenging the unknown
  • Expand on our strategic partnerships with market leaders all around the world
  • Do advanced research with long term targets, but also focus on new applications to meet current customer requirements

NEO Monitors was founded in 2003 to take over responsibility for manufacture and marketing of NEO’s gas and dust monitors.

NEO Monitors specialises in manufacture and sales of Gas and Dust Monitors based on Tuneable Diode Laser Spectroscopy. Our corporate aim is to be a world leader in supplying high quality products and services to the satisfaction of all our customers.

To achieve this, NEO Monitors’ management has been actively involved in implementing the quality management system (QMS). It has provided the vision and strategic direction for the growth of the company, and established quality objectives and the quality policy.

The quality system has been planned and implemented to meet our quality objectives and the requirements of the ISO 9001:2000 standard.

To continue to provide leadership and show commitment to the improvement of the QMS, management is committed to:

  • Communicate the importance of meeting customer, statutory, and regulatory requirements.
  • Establish quality policy and objectives.
  • Conduct management reviews.
  • Ensure the availability of resources.

NEO Monitors strives to identify current and future customer needs, to meet customer requirements and exceed customer expectations.

The management ensures that customer requirements are understood and met, by requiring compliance with documented customer communication procedures. Customer requirements are determined, converted into internal requirements, and communicated to the appropriate people in the organisation.

Quality objectives are established to support our organisation’s efforts in achieving our quality policy. Objectives have been established for the following:

  • Marketing/sales: Provide a first response to customers inquires within 24 hours.
  • Production: Provide a shortest possible delivery time for standard products.
  • Service: Provide technical support to customers by phone and/or e-mail within the same day. Minimise turn around time for warranty and other standard service tasks.
  • Product quality: Improve yield and reduce failure rates by continuously monitoring the quality of the parts being used and the work being done by employees at all levels in the organisation.
