Modular fibre-optic temperature measurement via new Rugged Monitoring R501 (Video)

The Rugged Monitoring portfolio of fibre-optic temperature monitors continues to expand. Their latest addition, the R501 chassis, accepts a range of I/O modules for real-time monitoring of up to 256 fibre-optic and other sensors for measurement of temperature, pressure, AC current, AC voltage, DC current, DC voltage and more. It supports both rack mount and distributed installation.

It has been developed to offer an upgradeable and flexible solution for the changing needs of customers, and a short video presentation on it is below.

The fibre-optic enabled modules and other I/O modules use the Dinrail mount, and can be daisy chained to the central CPU module, communicating over CANBUS/MODBUS. Distributed modules can also be directly connected to a datalogger, for example CAN-Logger, while Rugged Connect is an advanced software package available for data visualisation, configuration and reporting.

Like other Rugged products, the R501 can be used in a wide range of applications. These are not limited to Aviation, Automotive, Cryogenic, Battery Bank/Racks, Medical, Semiconductor, Utility, and R&D. It’s wide measuring range (-271 °C to +300 °C), high precision and complete immunity to RFI, EMI, microwave radiation, and high voltages make it an obvious choice for temperature measurement in extreme conditions.
