UC INSTRUMENTS GM8037 High Resolution Fiber Grating Sensor

The UC INSTRUMENTS GM8037 portable high resolution fiber grating sensor instrument is a high power with high accuracy and wide dynamic range for fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors, and compact PC-based interrogation system, and is also a high accurate optical spectral analysis system. It includes an external device, PC-based application software and optional high performance laptop. With a build-in tunable laser source and two channel photo detectors (no additional light source is required), the system can perform high accurate measurements in temperature, strain, and pressure in conjunction with FBG sensors/sensor arrays. Meanwhile it is a high accurate optical spectrum analyzer. The system provides users explicit understanding of how the spectral shape of FBG sensors rapidly respond to varying temperature, stain, pressure in the detection environment - rather than only reporting shifts of the detecting central wavelengths. This instrument is used in both the initial development of high-volume custom sensing systems and also long term field measurement applications. The two detector channels allow simultaneous interrogation of multiple sensors (up to 20 sensors per channel) in one channel and both channel analysis. Each optical channel can be used to interrogate fiber gratings in either transmission or reflection. A wide variety of fiber optic sensors/sensor arrays can be used with the system. All data can be transferred to an external PC via a RS232 or USB communication port. Specifications. Built-in Laser Wavelength Range: 1525.00 to 1566.00 nm. Built-in Laser Output Power: >= 20 mW.

Standard Calibration $240.00 *
*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the UC INSTRUMENTS GM8037. Price does not in most cases include measurement performance data. Pricing does include NIST traceable calibration and issue of a calibration certificate and calibration label. Pricing may vary slightly due to volume and location of laboratory supporting calibration. Volume pricing may apply. On-site fees may apply depending on logistics, location and volume of work to be completed during the visit.

Amplified Spontaneous Emission Source (ASE)
ASE, a process where spontaneously emitted radiation (luminescence) is amplified. In lasers and particularly in high-gain erbium-doped amplifiers, amplified spontaneous emission is usually an unwanted effect. It tends to limit the gain achievable in a single stage of a fiber optic amplifier to the order of 40–50 dB.

Dynamic Range
In a transmission system, the ratio of the overload level to the noise level of the system, usually expressed in dB. Ratio of the highest to lowest detectable signal of a system, expressed in dB.

Optical Power
Optical Power is usually measured in "dBm", or decibels referenced to one miliwatt of power. while loss is a relative reading, optical power is an absolute measurement, referenced to standards. You measure absolute power to test transmitters or receivers and relative power to test loss.

Relative Wavelength Accuracy
When randomly changing the wavelength and measuring the differences between the actual and displayed wavelengths, the relative wavelength accuracy is ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum value of all differences.

Wavelength is a term for the color of light, usually expressed in nanometers (nm) or microns (m). In Fiber Optics the wavelenghts mostly used are in the infrared region where the light is invisible to the human eye.
