OmniFlex Rackmount Chassis for up to 64 Channels

OmniFlex Rackmount Chassis for up to 64 Channels

Multi-channel fibre optic temperature monitoring system   

OmniFlex Rackmount Chassis   

The NeoptixTM OmniFlexTM­ System is a fully upgradeable, multi-channel fibre optic temperature monitoring system featuring up to 64 channels per chassis and up to 512 channels in a cascaded chassis configuration.


It is designed with versatility and upgradability in mind with a standard 4U / 19-inch rackmount chassis that can accommodate up to eight single- or multi-channel fibre optic modules. You can easily add modules yourself: just remove the blank panel at the location where you want to add the new module and slide it into the chassis. Fasten the module in place and the back panel connector will do the rest. The new module will automatically be recognised by the OmniLinkTM software via the USB port.


The OmniFlex System allows using various types of modules in the same chassis. These OmniModules can be easily swapped to match the needs of specific projects in your laboratory or testing facility. OmniModules are available with one, two and four optical channels providing direct measurement at a rate of 10 Hz per channel. OmniModules are also available with 4 or 8 channels that are multiplexed at a rate of 250 ms between channels.


The OmniFlex System is specifically designed to meet industrial requirements: extended intervals between servicing; low maintenance; rugged components, and the ability to withstand the harshest conditions. The system is approved for in-flight tests, which are the most stringent standards regarding shocks, vibrations, humidity and variations to pressure and temperature.


All components have been specifically selected for long term performance, including the light source that has an MTBF in excess of 25 years. Moreover, compared to other technologies available on the market, Neoptix sensors do not fade over time, allowing constant and absolute temperature measurements. The system is based on the proven GaAs technology. An original algorithm is used to analyse the signal and provide repeatable and reproducible measurements.


Neoptix fibre optic probes are made only with dielectric materials. They are also transparent to NMR. Moreover, Neoptix temperature probes are interchangeable and no calibration or inconvenient gauge factors are required when exchanging sensors.
