Optical Temperature Sensor Solutions

OSENSA Innovations develops and manufactures fiber optic temperature sensor products for industrial applications and offers them at a price point that is competitive with conventional wired thermocouples and RTD’s (resistive thermal devices). OSENSA’s unique technology enables construction of optical temperature probes from low-cost, high-strength materials such as polymer plastic optical fiber, and bulk glass fiber bundles. As a result, OSENSA’s optical temperature sensors are less expensive, more durable, and easier to install than competitive optical technologies.

OSENSA’s FTX series of fiber optic temperature signal conditioners offers exceptional speed and precision and has the same look and feel as traditional temperature transmitters, including familiar 4-20mA analog outputs and Modbus RTU communication over an RS-485 bus. Each signal conditioner can monitor temperature at three points, which is perfect for three phase power monitoring and a host of other applications. OSENSA’s fiber optic sensors are immune to electromagnetic radiation and compatible with high-voltage, high-RF (radio frequency), and high-magnetic field environments so they are ideal for applications where thermocouples and RTD’s fail.

OSENSA’s fiber optic temperature sensors are ideal for the following applications:
