FIBER-Series:
SWIR Digital Laser Vibrometers

For special measurement environments

The FIBER Series is a further development of the NOVA Series in which the compact optical head is connected via fibre optics with the measuring instrument. Separate fibres for measurement beam and the reflected signal ensure optimum signal quality.

Compact measuring heads not only make the system especially suited for measurements in confined spaces but also simplify the handling if the application requires frequent repositioning. Special heads are available for vacuum or climatic chambers as well as for extreme radiation conditions.

In multiplex operation, multiple measuring heads are connected to a single instrument via a high-speed fibre-optic switch. This enables the monitoring of multiple measuring points with one vibrometer.

Available decoders

A wide variety of high-performance real-time decoders are available for the evaluation of the interferometric measuring signals. The OptoMET UltraDSP technology enables the measurement of frequencies up to 10 MHz and vibrational velocities up to 24.5 m/s with the Fiber-Series, displacements can be resolved to less than 100 fm. All vibrometers incorporate a velocity decoder, and displacement and acceleration decoders are optionally available. Numerous measuring ranges per decoder ensure that measurements can always be performed with the optimum sensitivity.

Decoders can be easily retrofitted or upgraded. Start with a basic system and adapt the capabilities of the measuring instrument as required. This requires no return of the instrument to the factory and no waiting times for your production or research project. The table below provides an overview of the configuration options. We will also be happy to assist you in the selection of the best decoder for your measuring task.

Multiplex Faserköpfe 

The OptoMET Dual Fiber SWIR Vibrometer consists of a SWIR vibrometer and a flexible Dual-Fiber head. Using an additional fiber switch multiple fiber heads can be connected to the vibrometer, so you can multiplex many
different channels (2, 4, 8, 16, ...), the fiber switch comes with an electrical interface (Ethernet, USB, TTL, ...) and can be remotely operated by a PC.
