Your gateway to meaningful results

Fiber optic FBG sensing is a well-established technology which provides a monitoring solution in challenging conditions where electric sensors have difficulties delivering. Nevertheless, existing optical sensing systems still struggle in delivering reliable solutions in many applications, limited by their noise performance and the lack of long-term stability.

The I4 series FBG interrogators provide the ultimate solution for all your fiber optic sensing projects. Providing unmatched precision, noise-floor, and accuracy, the I4 series deliver the performance that all sensing systems require to turn into a reliable monitoring solution.

R

Scan-by-scan calibration

A gas reference cell is used to calibrate the interrogator readings of each laser sweep, ensuring absolute accuracy and long-term reliability.

R

Ultra-low flat noise floor

The I4 series features the lowest noise floor available in the market from DC to 4 kHz, ensuring ultimate performance for both dynamic and static measurements.

R

Dynamic gain

Adjustable gain for each FBG allowing maximizing the SNR of all sensors connected along a fiber, regardless of their reflectivity.

R

Dynamic regions

A smart peak-tracking algorithm allows tracking of FBG peaks regardless of temperature drifts, making sure your sensors are reliably monitored in all conditions.
