FBGuard 1550 – Advanced monitoring system

Highly accurate monitoring system for industrial measurements

The FBGuard 1550 is a reliable Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) interrogation and monitoring unit designed for static and dynamic measurements. It monitors different FBG sensors at once, with excellent wavelength precision and accuracy. This offers a cost-effective solution suitable for diverse applications.

  • Advanced customization to meet your project's needs
  • Usage of existing fiber optic network
  • Complex monitoring system (interrogation unit, data storage and basic data processing)

The FBGuard monitoring system comes in two product versions: standard 19’’ rack version and compact Mini version. Both of them are configurable to your needs by selecting single or multi channel version (2, 4, 8 or 16) and the scanning frequency speed (slow or fast).

Features & Benefits

  • Real-time monitoring
  • Multifunctional platform
  • Up to 640 FBGs / 16 channels
  • Scanning up to 11kSa/s
  • Easy system settings
  • Manufactured in-house

Long term field operation

FBGuard is highly durable and reliable even in demanding environments.

Fully autonomous system

Embedded PC and a Linux web server makes FBGuard independent of external devices and control procedures.

Analysis & configuration SW

The monitoring system is supplied with analysis and configuration SW with remote control from any standard PC through the TCP/IP protocol using the Measurement System Configurator (MeSyCo).

SSH & web interface

The configuration of the monitoring system, sensors and alarms, frequency of measurements and self data logging on an integrated SSD are possible by SSH and the web interface.
