    BraggMETER
    The intrinsic high dynamic range and high output power allows high resolution to be attained even for long fiber leads and lossy connections. The FiberSensing BraggMETER measurement unit includes a built-in NIST traceable wavelength reference that provides continuous calibration to ensure system accuracy over long term operation. The broadband tuning range combined with the optical multiplexer makes this measurement unit particularly suitable for large scale sensing networks.

    Configuring sensors is easy and straightforward. Each FiberSensing sensor is provided with a configuration file, allowing its characteristics to be automatically inserted, so measurements can start immediately after plugging the sensor.

    MODULARITY
    The optional built-in PXI™ rack expansion allows modular scalability through insertion of optical multiplexing modules and standard DAQ modules for the measurement of electric sensors.

    DATALOGGER
    The intuitive and easy-to-use touchscreen graphical user interface provides the user with datalogging functions for automated sampling, archiving and transmission. A highperformance local database manages multiple sensor configurations and large datasets. Acquired data can be exported to analysis tools through Excel™ compatible files.
