BaySpec’s WaveCapture™ fiber Bragg grating interrogation analyzer with integrated reference source (FBGA-IRS) is an integrated spectral engine covering multiple wavelengths simultaneously for precise and rapid fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor system measurements.
- +/- 0.04 pm wavelength repeatability
- Wide dynamic range
- Frequency response up to 5 kHz
- High reliability for use in harsh environments
- Athermal design enabling battery-operated, portable operation
- Compact, card-mountable design
Devices interrogate multiple wavelengths for precise FBG sensor-system strain or temperature measurements. They are now widely deployed in coal mine safety systems, oil and gas down-hole drilling, electrical power grid-monitoring systems, fire prevention systems, power plant monitoring systems, wind turbine monitoring, defense and homeland security systems, structural health monitoring systems, and many other applications.
The WaveCapture™ Series employ a highly efficient Volume Phase Grating (VPG®) as the spectral dispersion element, and an ultra-sensitive InGaAs array detector, thereby providing high-speed parallel processing and continuous spectral measurements. A fiber optic input is provided based on customer’s preference. Both the raw data and the processed data are available to the host.
