The IFOS I*Sense® 48K-MS-HC offers a cost effective,

multi-switch, high FBG count, high-speed, lightweight and
small footprint solution for monitoring up to 60 Fiber
Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors per node
Key features and benefits of the IFOS I*Sense™ 48k-MS-HC are:
The I*Sense® 48k-MS-HC provides very high FBG counts in a
highly scalable, expandable system with real-time data display
and storage for all its channels with every FBG seeing the full
bandwidth, offering high precision, remote monitoring, long life,
large dynamic range, and high measurement range with
multiple optical bands available for expansion. Different
sensing elements can be deployed on a single optical fiber
enabling a mix of strain, temperature and derivative
measurements for e.g. displacement, tilt, pressure, chemical
and biochemical measurements, to best meet varying
customer needs at a series of discrete locations. Customized
sensors are available upon request.
