fiber optic measuring instrument / compact
The sm125 Optical Sensing Interrogator is a compact, field proven, industrial grade static optical sensor interrogation module designed for reliable, long term field operation.
The sm125 Optical Sensing Interrogator is built upon the Micron Optics x25 optical interrogator core, featuring a high power, low noise swept wavelength laser, realized with Micron Optics patented Fiber Fabry-Perot Tunable Filter technology. The x25 interrogator core employs full spectral scanning and data acquisition, providing measurements with high absolute accuracy, flexible software post-processing, and high dynamic range performance. x25 based interrogators support continuous on-board NIST traceable wavelength reference components and are ideally suited to measure many different optical sensor types, including FBGs, long period gratings, extrinsic Fabry-Perot sensors, and many others. Well over half of the fiber optic sensors deployed today are measured with instrumentation that uses Micron Optics technology.
The Micron Optics sm - Sensing Module platform responds directly to the user commands of the optical interrogator core and outputs sensor wavelength data via Ethernet port and custom protocol. All module settings, sensor calculations, data visualization, storage, and alarming tasks are run on an external PC or sensor processor module. The Sensing Module platform is ideal for custom, client developed system management tools, but is equally compatible with local or remote installations of Micron Optics ENLIGHT.
