  • Patent number: 11353369
    Abstract: Examples of a optoelectronic transducer module with integrated signal processing for use in thermographic temperature measurement are disclosed. The module includes a light source, an optical element to couple the light to an optical port, a connector configured to connect the optoelectronic transducer module to a fiber optic sensor, a detector to detect an emitted light from the fiber optic sensor and convert the detected emitted light into an electrical signal and a module processing unit coupled to the light source and the detector configured to convert the electrical signal into a set of digital results. The optoelectronic module is in communication with an external processing unit using a high speed circuitry for data aggregation and a low speed circuitry for configuration and firmware upgrade in the module. The opto-electronic module is replaceable during operation to avoid big downtime.

  • Patent number: 10996117
    Abstract: Examples of an integrated active fiber optic temperature measuring device are disclosed. The integrated temperature measuring device comprises a fiber optic probe and an optoelectronic circuitry integrated into a single device which is then individually calibrated. The fiber optic probe has a fiber bundle with an active material at the tip of the probe. The optoelectronic circuitry is connected to the fiber optic probe. The optoelectronic circuitry includes a light source configured to provide an excitation light to the active material, a detector to detect the emitted light, a processing unit configured to determine a temperature based on a change in an emission intensity at a single wavelength range or the change in intensity ratio of two or more wavelength ranges, a lifetime decay, or a shift in emission wavelength peak of the emitted light, and a calibration means configured to calibrate the integrated active fiber optic temperature sensor.

  • Patent number: 7911591
    Abstract: An L2F velocimeter comprises a probe for insertion into a fluid, the probe having an open area therein to allow the fluid to pass through. The probe comprises an illumination system to direct a pair of light beams, separated by a distance, through the open area, and a collection system to collect forward scattered light scattered from particles in the fluid. The collection system has an optical axis in common with the illumination system. The velocimeter further comprises an electro optical assembly connected to the probe to provide light to the illumination system, to receive light collected from the collection system, to measure a lapse time in fluctuations of the forward scattered light created by particles passing through the pair of light beams and to calculate the velocity of the fluid based on the lapse time and the separation distance.
