Interrogator FBG-Scan 90X

The FBG-Scan 90X is a dynamic, precise measurement devices for Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors based on spectrometer technology. The system offers a cost effective solution and is offered as a 4 or 8 channel system.

General Information

The FBG-Scan 90X is a dynamic, precise measurement devices for Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors based on spectrometer technology. The system offers a cost effective solution and is offered as a 4 or 8 channel system. All sensors can be monitored with a sampling rate of 400Hz or 222 Hz respectively. The system has a high wavelength stability of 0,3pm at full measurement speed and has an absolute wavelength accuracy of 10pm. This is guaranteed using the built-in wavelength reference which makes a periodic recalibration of the system obsolete. The sampling is done using the internal clock or can be controlled by an external trigger signal to synchronize the measurements with other devices. The system is supplied with the “ILLumiSense” software, which is used to visualize and process the FBG wavelengths on a PC and convert these data into engineered data such as temperature and strain data.

Features

  • 4 or 8 individual optical channels
  • Up to 40 sensors per optical channel
  • High wavelength stability of 0,3pm (1s) @ full sampling rate
  • Internal wavelength reference for high absolute wavelength accuracy
  • No need for time of flight corrections to maintain wavelength accuracy
  • Depolarized light source to reduce birefringence induced noise effects
  • High dynamic range > 30dB
  • External triggering possible
  • Simultaneously detection of sensors belonging to the same optical channel

FBG-Scan 80X

The FBG-Scan 80X is a dynamic, precise measurement device for Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors based on spectrometer technology.

ILLumiSense Software v3.1.x

This software has been developed to perform real time measurements using the FBG-Scan interrogator series of FBGS. It supports both the 80X as well as the 90X series and also supports the EP-versions of those systems (Embedded Processing).

Interrogator FBG-Scan X0X-EP

The FBG-Scan X0X-EP series of interrogation units refers to the FBG-Scan 804, 808, 904 or 908 optical engines in combination with an Embedded Processing (EP) platform that is housed in a 19” chassis.
