New FTX-020 fiber optical temperature transmitters are ideal for life science applications including patient monitoring systems and medical research

Online PR News – 05-March-2019 – Burnaby, British Columbia – OSENSA Innovations Corp. ("OSENSA") announces commercial availability of its new FTX-020 fiber optic temperature transmitter with PRB-100 and PRB-400 probes for integration into patient monitoring equipment. The FTX-020 module is the world's smallest temperature transmitter for OEM applications like MRI, Microwave Ablation (MWA) / Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) patient monitoring. The PRB-100 and PRB-400 probes offer industry-leading response time and accuracy to meet the demands of applications such as surface skin and core temperature monitoring, and MRI phantom implantable device testing.
Life science applications that are not conducive to standard thermometers and RTDs (resistance temperature detectors) rely on fiber optic temperature sensors. OSENSA's fiber optic probes are constructed out of x-ray transparent materials and with non-magnetic connectors for full compatibility in MRI and CT scanning rooms, where immunity to RF, EM or MR interference is required.
The FTX-020 temperature transmitter is 75% smaller than competitive solutions and can be soldered directly to printed circuit boards for easy and low-cost integration into OEM systems. Together with OSENSA's PRB-100 and PRB-400 probes, the temperature sensors deliver an industry leading ±0.1°C accuracy and rapid response time over a calibrated temperature measurement range from 10°C to 60°C.

About OSENSA (www.osensa.com)

OSENSA Innovations develops and manufactures fiber optic temperature sensor products for industrial applications including power transformers, switchgear, generators, semiconductor, and life sciences. OSENSA's technology is transforming the temperature sensor industry by enabling industrial-grade fiber optic solutions that are price-competitive with conventional wired thermocouples and RTDs (resistive thermal devices). Furthermore, OSENSA's fiber optic temperature sensors are more durable and easier to install than competitive optical technologies. OSENSA's fiber optic sensors are immune to electromagnetic radiation and compatible with high-voltage, high-RF (radio frequency), and high-magnetic-field environments, making them ideal for applications where thermocouples and RTDs fail.
