The NANOSENSE configuration and monitoring software is used for optical sensors setup and measurement. The software operates with any instrument that belongs to Femto Sensing International’s SX family of optical sensing interrogators. Once saved, the SX interrogators automatically apply that configuration on power up. Multiple configuration files can be saved on the same PC and can be readily accessed for different field applications, as needed.
The NANOSENSE software platform is used extensively in conjunction with our family of rugged SX platform interrogators for various sensors including those used in civil engineering, geotechnical, marine, railways, roads, energy, industrial, security, medical, and many other commercial applications.
Designed with ease of use in mind, the NANOSENSE software is also used for data analysis during optical sensors design, development, manufacturing, and installation. The software is suitable for easily integrating the SX interrogators into larger monitoring, data analysis, and control systems.
Enables immediate access to accurate and repeatable measurements: The NANOSENSE software quickly and intuitively configures our SX platform based interrogators to return accurate measurements across the instruments’ available 80nm wavelength range. Using built-in calibration technology, the SX instruments feature 1pm resolution, 12pm accuracy, and 30dB dynamic range over the entire operating temperature range of the instrument, with automatic gain (integration time) and threshold control adjustments. Manual options for thresholds and gain stages are included.
A focus on FBG based sensors: The NANOSENSE software offers access to the complete range of configuration options for the entire family of available SX interrogators: It offers system integrators full flexibility to optimize their FBG sensors and FBG sensors arrays for the specific needs of each application. The sensors can be monitored and their data can be saved in Full Spectrum Mode, Peaks Mode, and Sensors Mode. Sensor formulas can include one or more FBG peaks per sensor as required, for example, for self-temperature compensated strain sensors. The data can be displayed and saved locally using a standard industrial or office PC.
Free Software: The NANOSENSE software is included free of charge with each SX interrogator.
