FODL Multi-channel Field Datalogger

HIGH RELIABILITY

16 OR 32 CHANNELS

FIBER OPTIC DATALOGGER

The FODL-1600/3200 is a universal multi-channel fiber optic field datalogger ideally suited for performing multi-point temperature, pressure, strain and displacement measurements.

Description

The FODL-1600/3200 datalogger is designed for applications that require continuous monitoring of a large number of measuring points. The FODL-1600/3200 datalogger is capable of measuring the absolute cavity length of Fabry-Perot fiber optic transducers with great accuracy, providing highly reliable measurements.

It is compatible with fiber optic transducers, including temperature, strain, pressure, displacement and force and load. Roctest’s transducers feature complete immunity to microwave and RF radiation.

The FODL-1600/3200 has a 0.01% F.S. resolution (without averaging) and 0.025% F.S. precision. Use of a Flash ROM allows the user to easily upgrade the signal conditioner firmware. The FODL-1600/3200 has a non volatile memory buffer that can store up to 50 000 data samples and datalogging sequences. Duration and other operational parameters are easily programmable using RS-232 remote control and user-friendly.

The FODL-1600/3200 datalogger comes standard in a NEMA-4 enclosure that accommodates 16 to 32 channels. The RS-232 I/O port is used for control and data downloads.
