Micronor will be exhibiting at the SPIE Photonics West Exhibition and Conference, Jan. 31–Feb. 2 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. The show will mark the debut of FOTEMP1-OEM-MNT, a low-cost OEM solution for fiber optic temperature measurement, a joint development of Micronor and its partner Optocon AG.
The product operates in conjunction with all TS series GaAs Fiber Optic Temperature Sensors to provide a discrete temperature monitoring solution that can operate accurately and reliably in challenging environments where electronics-based temperature sensors (thermocouples, RTDs) cannot function. The FOTEMP1-OEM-MNT controller features a measurement range of -200°C to +300°C, ±0.2ºC accuracy and built-in USB, RS232 and SPI interfaces.
Like all of our fiber optic sensors, the GaAs optical sensor’s entirely non-metallic, passive optical design provides immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI), radio frequency interference (RFI), microwaves, high voltage, extreme magnetic fields, radiation, chemicals and explosive atmospheres. In these environments, GaAs temperature sensors enable new and unprecedented solutions impossible for electronic sensors.
