The FBGuard 1550 FAST is a compact, field proven, industrial grade FBG interrogation unit designed for reliable, long term field operation (24/7) which can be used for a broad field of applications. It is designed for high accuracy static and dynamic measurements of Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors. The device covers a wide wavelength range and provides simultaneous measurements at very fast response rates and excellent wavelength resolution. The system can measure up to 8 optical channels with 40 FBG sensors per channel. This provides a cost-effective solution for industrial measurements.
