Capturing more information from equipment installed in a process plant is an important trend in the field of process instrumentation. Measuring the process temperature with high spatial resolution to observe and track the distributed reaction intensity is becoming increasingly important. Temperature gradients and dangerous hot spots should be localized using multipoint temperature sensors. An optical sensor system with fiber Bragg grating (FBG) technology is the preferred approach. A factory calibrated plug & play system has been developed. The wide temperature range from 230 °C to 500 °C, the good accuracy, excellent long term stability better than class B (IEC 60751) , the enormous amount of sensors (up to 192) and long, highly bendable lances mean that this nextgeneration temperature measuring system offers many advantages.
