Fiber Optic Temperature Sensor Solutions

OSENSA Innovations develops and manufactures fiber optic temperature sensor products for industrial applications including power transformers, switchgear, generators, semiconductor, and MRI equipment. Fiber optic temperature sensors are solutions consisting of one or more fiber optic probes attached to a temperature transmitter (also known as signal conditioner) electronic device.  OSENSA’s fiber optic sensing technology is transforming the temperature sensor industry by enabling industrial-grade fiber optic solutions that are price-competitive with conventional wired thermocouples and RTDs (resistive thermal devices). Furthermore, OSENSA’s fiber optic temperature sensors are more durable and easier to install than competitive optical technologies. OSENSA’s fiber optic sensors are immune to electromagnetic radiation and compatible with high-voltage, high-RF (radio frequency), and high-magnetic-field environments, making them ideal for applications where thermocouples and RTDs fail.   

OSENSA’s fiber optic temperature sensor solutions include the FTX series of temperature transmitters (also known as signal conditioners), fiber optic temperature probes, extension cables, various accessories for ease of installations, and monitoring software. OSENSA’s temperature transmitters offer exceptional speed and precision and have the same look and feel as traditional transmitters, including familiar analog outputs and digital buses such as RS-485. Various fiber optic channel counts are supported, as well as probes that are optimized for a host of applications.

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