FBGS, a leader in the design, manufacturing and distribution of innovative fiber optic sensing products, is pleased to announce it has passed the EMC testing according to EN60601 regulation for its fiber optic interrogator  FBG-Scan 804D.

According to sales manager (Europe) David Johnson, “we are now a step closer to supply a medical declaration of conformity for our instrument in medical applications when used in combination with a medically approved power supply. The instrument achieved the highest performance levels for the EMC test and we can claim the highest immunity level at 10V/m, which is only normally required for life support equipment.

The goal is to market our strain and temperature measurement solutions into the medical industry, where miniature FBG based sensors are used for diagnostics and monitoring. This opens up potential for many innovative applications including a unique fiber optic catheter. This device, used by gastroenterologists use an array of fiber Bragg gratings to measure the complex muscular contractions that transport food through the digestive system”

The FBG-Scan 804D is a dynamic, high precision measurement device for use with Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors. The system can measure up to 4 optical channels with 40 FBG sensors per channel and all sensors can be monitored at a scan rate of 500Hz.
