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

OPTOCON AG – QUALITY UND EXPERTISE AT THE SENSOR+TEST 2014

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

Safe temperature monitoring in transformer

Due to the growing demand of energy existing power plants and grids are stretched to their limits. To ensure operati¬onal safety, critical factors such as temperature have to be monitored in generators and transformers. High power generators are often filled with hydrogen in order to cool effectively. Besides the heavily contaminated electromagnetic environment the risk for explosions is high. Conventional measurement systems can not guarantee a reliable temperature monitoring. That

UPGRADEABLE MULTICHANNEL FIBER OPTIC THERMOMETER - FOTEMPMK-19" MODULAR

The new fully upgradeable multichannel fiber optic temperature monitoring system FOTEMPMK-19" Modular by Optocon AG has a modern appearance and a high quality standard. It is smaller in size featuring a standard 3HE/19inch rack mount system. It supports a variety of variable measurement projects, because it is fully customizable on individual customer requirements. Exchange modules with different features are available any time and can be completed or replaced in a

NANO MEETS TEMPERATURE SENSOR

FIBEROPTIC NANO TEMPERATURE SENSOR AND NANO-KIT 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
