fiber optic measuring instrument / dynamic
The sm230 Optical Sensing Interrogator is an industrial grade, rack mounted dynamic optical sensor interrogation module that facilitates up to 16 internal fiber measurement channels.
The sm230 Optical Sensing Interrogator is built upon the x30 optical interrogator core, featuring a high power, high speed swept wavelength laser, realized with Micron Optics patented Fiber Fabry-Perot Tunable Filter technology. The x30 interrogator core employs high speed hardware peak detection, optimized for rapid data acquisition of many simultaneous FBG sensors. x30 technology is focused on providing measurements with higher acquisition rates, moderate dynamic range, and continuous lifetime on-board referencing. The combination of high speed and excellent repeatability enables a single x30 interrogator to simultaneously monitor dynamic sensors and measure static sensors with ultra-high resolution. 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.
