Paper Abstract

Recent years have seen progression in the use of fibre optic aided remote condition monitoring techniques which was once reserved for medical application. The use of such systems provides important and useful information on the operational status of components and equipment in their normal remote operating condition and environment. Their application in a specific area usually requires some innovative design work, that utilises the basic fibre optic system for the required tasks. The remote condition monitoring technique requires the automated system of fibre optics probe and Charge Couple Device camera as means of visually monitoring the component insitu. This paper presents some of the difficulties and constraints encountered in the conceptualisation of an automated remote condition monitoring technique. It deals mainly with the optical aspects of the technique. This includes the results of some experimental work, and the problems that are inherent in the development of the concept of a computer controlled camera orbital scanning system.
