New OmniFlex 2 multi-channel fibre optic temperature monitoring system from Neoptix

omniflex-2

The Neoptix OmniFlex 2 System is a new, fully upgradeable, multi-channel fibre optic temperature monitoring system.

Field upgradeable to as many as 104 channels, the unit can be controlled by its onboard colour touchscreen, or remotely using a web browser via Ethernet. The latter method is more comprehensive, as it enables remote module configuration, data-logging capabilities, full electrical isolation, and optional WiFi connectivity.

The basic OmniFlex 2 chassis is a standard 3U in height that accommodates up to 6 OmniModules, while a 6U version can be fitted with a total of 13 OmniModules. Additional chassis can be cascaded by linking them via a router.

OmniModules

The OmniFlex 2 System allows use of several types of OmniModules in the same chassis. These plug-in modules can easily be mixed and matched to meet the needs of specific test projects. The current OmniModules are:

  • 4-channel direct measurement module operating at 10 Hz/channel
  • 4-channel multiplexed module operating at 250 ms/channel
  • 8-channel multiplexed module operating at 250 ms/channel
  • 16-channel 0-10 V analogue output module

Since its introduction in 2006, OmniFlex systems have been used in aerospace, cryogenic research, medical and other demanding industrial applications. It has also been the ideal tool of choice for monitoring temperatures during power transformer testing due to its -80 to +300 °C measuring range.
