Fiber optic thermometer systems are also available for rent!
Micronor now offers a complete range of fiber optic temperature sensors, probes and interfaces for temperature measurement in challenging environments. TS series fiber optic temperature probes offer immunity to RF and microwave radiation along with wide temperature range, intrinsic safety and non-invasive use. The fiber optic temperature probes can operate over -200°C to +300°C (-328°F to +572°C), and withstand harsh and corrosive environments. Typical fiber optic temperature monitoring applications include:
- Process monitoring
- Power transformers
- Medical environments
- Catheter instrumentation
- Harsh chemical conditions, including radiation environments.
The TS series fiber optic temperature probes consist of a gallium arsenide (GaAs) semiconductor crystal that is mounted on the end of an optical fiber. The principle of operation is based on the temperature dependence of the band gap of GaAs. With Egap=1.423eV at 872nm at 300°K; then dE/dT=0.452meV/°K at 300°K. The block diagram above illustrates how the fiber optic temperature measurement system works.
