FPS3010 - Award winning Real Time Interferometric Sensor from attocube systems

(PresseBox) (Munich, ) The high sensitivity, ultra-precise interferometric displacement sensor for industrial use is one of attocube's latest innovations. The revolutionary sensor system enables displacement detection and vibration measurements in the sub-nanometer regime. Its sophisticated, patented working principle allows the simultaneous detection of position variations of up to three targets at distances up to 40 cm. Due to the elaborated three-axis design, angular variations and tilt effects can be measured and detected most precisely.

In contrast to conventional laser interferometry systems, the FPS3010 is an all fiber-based sensor, reducing the physical dimensions of the sensor head to the millimeter range (the smallest available head has a diameter of only 4mm). Due to its most resistant material characteristics the FPS3010 can also be used under extreme conditions including operating temperatures between -100°C and +100° C.

Despite its exceptional sensitivity, the sensor is capable of tracking target velocities of up to 1m/s - with no degradation in resolution or accuracy. Thus, vibrations measurements for components and tools can be realized with up to 1MHz bandwidth.

With its high level of automation and ease-of-use software, the FPS3010 is truly plug-and-play and does not require time consuming alignment procedures to get started. In addition to data transmission and storage on a personal computer through its USB interface, the FPS3010 sensor is also capable of outputting virtually latency-free incremental and serial word position information at 10MHz bandwidth through its real time interfaces.

Resolution, signal stability & band width of the FPS3010 are - compared to currently existing products - unrivaled. For this reason, the product was awarded with the so called "Oscar of Innovation", the renowned R&D 100 in 2012.
