PRESS RELEASE

Micron Optics, Inc. is proud to announce the sm690, a new ultra-high speed, high resolution data acquisition module capable of simultaneously measuring up to four Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs) at a 2MHz sampling frequency, a rate which is currently unparalleled in the optical sensing industry. High speed optical sensor and mechanical vibration measurements can be utilized in applications such as ballistics testing, blast analysis, acoustic emissions monitoring, and other vibration mode analysis applications. Another key feature of the sm690, shared with all optical sensing technology, is its ability to acquire reliable data in high electromagnetic environments without failure.

In 2005, Micron Optics released a prototype vibration mode analyzer and expected to provide only a few units to various research industries. It did not take long for users to realize its advantages, and the analyzer became widely popular with scientists and engineers around the world for a variety of applications such as measuring the destructive shock wave of large explosions or the propagation of sonic energy in composite panels used in aerospace vehicles. An opportunity arose to continue the innovation of an ultra-high speed optical sensing module, and so Micron Optics introduced the sm690 as an answer to this high demand in various industries.

The sm690 is engineered with a design featuring an all-new data acquisition architecture and high performance optical wavelength discriminatory components. This advancement allows for the best combination of resolution and speed with a scan rate 20 times faster than its predecessor. Also, those familiar with National Instruments will be interested to learn the sm690 module is fully compliant with the IEEE standard PXIe platform and can be easily integrated with LabVIEW™.

Company Description: Micron Optics, a leading provider of tunable optical technologies, offers a comprehensive portfolio of components and instruments for Optical Sensing, Biotech and Telecom markets. Built upon its solid technology foundation, Micron Optics' products span from simple tunable components to fast swept laser modules to fast and accurate optical instrumentation.
