Advanced customization available
The monitoring system can be modified to meet your project’s needs, such as the desired functionality, interoperability, and others.
Usage of existing fiber optic network
Installation of an expensive sensor infrastructure or availability of electrical power is not necessary.
Complex monitoring system
The FBGuard 1550 provides not only an interrogation unit but also data storage and basic data processing. More layers are available through additional HW and SW.
Long term field operation
FBGuard is highly durable and reliable even in demanding environments. This makes it especially suitable for a long term field operation.
Multifunctional measuring platform
The monitoring system can measure a variety of physical parameters (even electrical) simultaneously at very fast response rates and excellent resolution.
Fully autonomous system
Thanks to an embedded PC and a web server running on Linux, the FBGuard is independent of external devices and control procedures.
The FBGuard 1550 is made by Safibra, which gives us complete control over the product output, quality, logistics, production costs,and support.
Analysis and configuration SW
The monitoring system is supplied with analysis and configuration SW, which are both platform-independent and feature an embedded processing board with all decision functions.
Up to 640 FBG sensors monitored on 16 channels
The monitoring system is designed for highly accurate measurements of up to 40 FBG sensors per channel, which can be monitored at up to 16 parallel optical channels (1, 2, 4, 8, 16).
Scan frequency up to 11,000 samples/s
The FBGuard can achieve a maximum scan frequency of up to 11,000 samples for a single optical channel operation. This „Superfast option“ is available in the FAST version only.
SSH and web interface
The configuration of the monitoring system, sensors and alarms, frequency of measurements,and self data logging on an integrated SSD can all be adjusted by SSH and the web interface.
Event notification and data exchange
The monitoring system is equipped with three direct alarm relays for immediate notifications to be sent via email. Additional communication interfaces are available for data exchange.
Easy system settings
FBGuard features a web-based configuration interface called the Measurement System Configurator (MeSyCo) which provides automation functions for FAST system and sensor settings, even for sensors with unknown parameters.
Remote control from any PC
The monitoring unit has an Ethernet interface, which allows remote control from any standard PC through the TCP/IP protocol using the Measurement System Configurator (MeSyCo).
This desktop application running directly on the FBGuard measurement system can be used to display the real-time data and data saved in the archive directly in the measurement system.
