FS-540 and FS-5500 + FG-1300 - Optical Fiber Sensors and Amplifier
The FG-1300 is a non-contact type high-performance amplifier that emits red light from LED to a rotating object, and detects the variation of the reflected red light amount. This amplifier is used in combination with an exclusive detector FS-5500*/FS-540 Optical Fiber Sensors which has adopted environment resistant design. The glass fibers are covered with flexible stainless steel tube for rotation measurement in limited space. New * FS-5500 slim type optical fiber sensor can measure an object hard to be measured and enables the measurement in the limited space, which cannot be measured with previous models.

  • Features of FS-5500 Optical Fiber Sensor
  • Able to detect small objects Can be detected the rotation of a small object in a limited space such as 2 mm pitch of zebra tape, turbine blades or small motor etc.
  • High resolution Can be used for crank angle detection that high resolution is required, for tracking analysis, and for balancing measurement. Optimal as measuring unit including FFT Analyzer or tachometer.
  • Environment-resistant design allows measurement under sever or limited conditions. Since it has slim body and can be used under very low or high temperature (-40 to 250 ), it is possible to measure vehicle rotation (engine, shaft, gear, or drive shaft) or measure parts on production line. Even under hard conditions or at limited space, rotation or angle can be measured.
  • Features of FG-1300 Fiber Optic Sensor Amplifier
  • Able to measure high speed rotating object. (up to 10 kHz of maximum response frequency)
  • Red visible light makes it possible to detect the measurement object with thin shaft which is difficult to adjust optical axis position.
  • Can be detected with minimal change of light amount. Detection without reflection mark is also available.
  • Selectable gain/trigger level adjustment depending on a use application; manual adjustment using volume control button or auto adjustment using auto trigger.
  • Provided two measurement distance settings; normal range or adjacent range. Detectable from adjacency to 70 mm max. (when reflection mark used)
