Fibre Bragg grating sensor technology

New horizons for your measurements...

Operating principle

The Bragg grating acts like a mirror which only reflects one very precise wavelength (colour).
When the optical fibre is strained or when its temperature changes, the reflected wavelength varies proportionally.
Different sensors manufactured using gratings with a specific wave length can be implemented in a series on the same optical line (typically up to 16).

Explanation of the operation of scaime fiber optic technology


Fibre-optic sensors: unique advantages

  • Simple, safe handling of the optical cable
  • High resistance to dynamic fatigue
  • Subsequent repair and mounting
  • Electromagnetic immunity
  • Intrinsically non-explosive
  • Perfect load transfer
  • No corrosion or drift
  • Installation of numerous sensors on the same line
How the scaime interrogator works
optical interrogator MDX400T

MDX400T, Optical acquisition unit for harsh environments

Previously reserved for laboratory measurements, the MDX400T brings fibre-optic measurement technology to the industrial sector for the first time. 

Noting the growing interest among industrial manufacturers in the benefits of fibre optics, SCAIME has developed a new Bragg grating sensor conditioner specially designed for facilities in difficult environments.

In its toughened version, the MDX400T comes in an IP66 watertight stainless steel case particularly suitable for withstanding aggressive atmospheres such as salt air or moist heat. Its resistance to high levels of shock and vibration enables its use onboard in mobile environments (wind-turbine hubs; land, sea or rail transportation, etc.)
