FOS & S DiTest STA 200 Sensor Analyser

DiTest STA 200

The DiTeSt® (STA-200) is a unique tool for the evaluation of distributed strain and/or temperature over several kilometres. It is a powerful diagnostic instrument for the identification and localization of potential problems.
It allows the monitoring of local strain and temperature at thousands locations by mean of a single optical fibre and in just one shot. Its inherent high stability and self-referenced principle of operation, allows on-line or off-line long term monitoring of large structures.

FOS & S DynoSense 300 Sensor Analyser

DynoSense 300

The DynoSense 300 is a 40 fibre Bragg grating monitor and supports three function modes:

1) Wavelength mode: in this mode the wavelengths of the different FBGs are recorded as a function of time at a scan rate of 3,3 kHz.

2) Spectrum mode: this mode allows visualisation of the complete optical spectrum and is ideal for diagnosing the sensing network.

3) Fast Fourier Transform mode: in this mode the FFT of the recorded wavelength signals is processed online.

The system can be controlled with a standard PC via Camera Link or Gigabit Ethernet.
