Press release from: Optocon AG




Fiber optic temperature sensors from different manufacturers typically use especially prepared fiberglass for temperature measurement. These fiber tips consist of gallium arsenide (GaAs) crystals.
This type of sensor is very expensive to produce and mechanically sensitive to impact.
The good news is: The fiber optic temperature sensors from Optocon AG are also available in a nano-powder version. Bound nano scaled GaAs powder adhesive, replaces the previous GaAs crystal. By light scattering of particles, the optical response time is similar to the time of crystal.
Mechanically more stable sensors, paired with the known advantages of fiber optic temperature measurement in microwave fields, strong electric and magnetic fields, magnetic resonance imaging, high-voltage environments and wherever electrical sensors can't be used. The sensors can be prepared with our NANO-KIT in a few steps on customer side. All needed tools and materials are included. In addition, the procedure is explained in a well-illustrated guide, so that everyone is able to prepare a temperature sensor.

Die Optocon AG entwickelt, produziert und verkauft seit 1993 faseroptische Temperatursensoren und Thermometer. Ihr Hauptsitz liegt in der sächsischen Hauptstadt Dresden. Die Produkte jedoch gehen um die ganze Welt. So hat sich bereits ein breites Distributorennetz entwickelt, wodurch sich das Unternehmen auf dem internationalen Markt etablieren konnte.

Evolution - Trafo Meets Display
Reliable Reliability and safety - the most important attributes in generator and transformer technology. The Optocon AG developed for this purpose the fiber optic thermometer FOTEMPTrafo, that supports you effective in these areas. To ensure a constant and guaranteed operational safety, the temperatures are monitored at critical points in transformers and generators permanently. In combination FOTEMPTrafo with the fiber optic temperature probe TSTrafo and the innovative measurement method, allows accurate and precise
FOTEMPTrafo for smart grid temperature sensing in transformer
Power plants and grids are stretched to their limits. To ensure the operati¬onal safety, critical factors such as "Hot-Spots" inside high voltage transformers, power factor correction capacitors and alternators are monitored. Other possible capabilities are temperature measurement on high voltage distribution power lines such as for electric trains or in gas isolated power breakers and in power factor adjustment capacitors. Under such difficult and harsh environments conventional measurement systems
Move of the Optocon AG in the year of its 20th anniversary
At the end of September Optocon AG moves to its new business headquarter at the Washingtonsstraße in Dresden. Due to an increasing demand for high-quality fiber optic measurement and because of the rising manpower as well as the economic growth of the company, the management of Optocon AG decided to prepare the next steps. The new office and storage rooms impress by technically-advanced equipment, excellent infrastructural connection and modern comfort. This
As each day is unique, so every fair is unique. The Sensor+Test will showcase this year many interesting innovations and products in the category sensor and measuring technology. The longtime experience of the Optocon AG is resembled in its convincing and high quality products in the field of fiber optic temperature measurement. You can also visit its stand in 2014 (H12/329) and learn more about the new products. Since the company
