In 2013, Smart Fibres Ltd., a global provider of Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG) sensor and interrogator products, announced its SmartScan SBI, a single board dynamic FBG Interrogator for OEM integration with third party systems in industrial, aerospace, oil & gas, civil engineering and other applications. (see link below).
Smart Fibres is now pleased to offer the SmartScan SBI Lite, a variant of the single board interrogator with the same extraordinary resolution, a limited 250 Hz scan rate, and an ultra-low price tag.
With prices commencing at under $9,000, and reducing further with quantity, the SmartScan SBI Lite is an affordable, high-performance complete FBG interrogator. Like the SmartScan SBI, the Lite model is modular and can be built into an 8, 12 or 16-channel 40nm or 80nm capability, either as a board-stack or build into a Modular SmartScan Lite Instrument.
