BaySpec’s WaveCapture™ fiber Bragg grating analyzer (FBGA) system is an interrogation device with an integrated light source for monitoring multiple wavelengths distributed over 4 channels. Precise fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor measurements are achieved with high end of life (EOL) wavelength accuracy and high-frequency response time.
- Up to 16 channels
- Integrated broadband light source
- Ultra fast response time (up to 5 kHz)
- Low power consumption design, enabling battery-operated operation
- Rugged design for use in harsh environments
- High reliability, no moving parts
- Excellent wavelength repeatability and resolution
The device covers a wide wavelength range and provides simultaneous measurements at very fast response rates with excellent wavelength resolution. High reliability (MILSTD810F shock and vibration) is achieved through a rugged mechanical design with no moving parts. Periodic calibration is not required. High speed input/output (I/O) is achieved through the use of USB2.0 or ethernet communications (serial communications also supported at lower speeds).
The WaveCapture™ FBGA system’s core spectral engine employs a highly efficient volume phase grating (VPG®) as the spectral dispersion element and an ultra-sensitive InGaAs array detector as the detection element, allowing high-speed parallel processing and continuous spectral measurement.
