Paper Abstract

An Automated Fiber Optic Moisture Sensor System (AFOMSS) being developed for use in the food processing industry at Stevens uses an IBM AT compatible computer the PC 63 10 to control optical components and acquire process and display temperatureand humidity data. This information maybe used to controlfoodprocessing operations. Automated moisture sensor system operation has been validated using a Mitsubishi HS-4 electronic moisture sensor and fiber optic moisture sensors provided by the Rutgers Fiber Optic Materials Research Program (FOMRP). Real time measurements using a CoCl2-coated porous fiber optic sensor were found to be within 3 of the calibration data.
