The FieldSens is a multi-channel, multi-purpose signal conditioner to be used with any of Opsens Solutions’ interferometric fiber optic sensors, i.e. the WLPI fiber optic sensors, for temperature, pressure, strain, and displacement measurements.
At the heart of the FieldSens is the Opsens Solutions’ White Light Polarization Interferometry (WLPI) technology (Patent #7,259,862) which provides a means for making accurate and absolute measurements of the path length difference of any type of interferometric fiber optic sensors.
The FieldSens is offered in a tabletop version or a wall mounted version and comes standard with LCD screen display, RS-232 and RS-485 serial interface outputs. It provides sequential readings up to 12 measurement channels with a ±0.01% full scale precision.
