The Spectraleye Interrogator 600 is a handheld interrogation system for fiber Bragg grating sensors. Manufactured by Fiber Optic Sensors and Sensing Systems (FOS&S), it delivers 10-pm wavelength accuracy, a 38-nm scan range, 500-µW of launch power and 1-pm resolution, and includes an RS-232 interface and a USB port. Application software can be customized to display temperature and strain, and the instruments can be operated in a passive optical spectrum analyzer mode, displaying power vs. absolute wavelength, and can be directly controlled via a laptop or other PC for online monitoring. Applications include monitoring of pipeline stress, oil well temperature and pressure, high-tension line temperature, and civil structure stress and strain.
