This use case from the steel casting industry illustrates how the FBG-Scan 915-EP proves to be the best solution to monitor a complex production process, optimizing the quality of the end-product.
Context: Monitor temperature changes in production process of steel casting using fiber optic sensing – meaning monitoring the molds in which the liquid steel is being casted.
Challenge: During casting and cooling the temperature plays a major role in safeguarding the production process and guaranteeing the quality of the produced steel. Given the size of the molds, the process requires multiple fibers and a maximum number of measurement points to pinpoint the changes exactly.
Solution: The number of measurement points which can be measured with the same optical engine is doubled leading to a more cost-effective installation and further exploiting the unique multiplexing capabilities of FBG-based fiber sensing.
The FBG-Scan 90X platform enables precise temperature measurements while the EP version guarantees an easy installation and plug-and-play operation.
