Optical-fiber Signal Conditioner Modules
FISO Technologies introduced a new generation of optical-fiber signal conditioner modules, combined with a new Evolution table-top platform. The FPI-HR signal conditioners are suitable for laboratory and OEM applications. Each optical module is integrated inside a housing shell providing system protection and ease of integration. In addition, each module includes a RS-232 and RS-485 communication port as well as analog outputs (0V to 5V or 4 mA to 20 mA). The Evolution chassis provides a snap-in DIN-rail connection for the FPI RS-485 communication port. The table-top chassis is offered with a capacity of two, four or six modules, while a rack mount version for industrial applications is available with a capacity of seven FPI-HR modules. The FPI-HR signal conditioner module features desirable temperature and pressure accuracies at high sampling rates. Combined with FISO fiber optic sensors, the module reaches an accuracy of ±0.25°C within a measuring range from 20°C up to 40°C and ±0.4°C within a measuring range from 0°C up to 120°C. This module is available in a configuration of one or two channel(s) per module at a sampling rate of up to 250 Hz.
