Paper Abstract

A multimode optical-fiber sensor-network for the simultaneous monitoring of heat andproximity is presented. The interrogation and processing system makes use of the short- wavelengths OTDR technique. The network topology is a hybrid configuration of reflective- tree and transmissive-ladder architectures, which are operative for temperature and proximitysensors, respectively.Temperature sensors are operative in the 20-80°C range with a best resolution of atleast 0.3°C. Proximity sensors can operate either as on/off devices or as analog sensors. Theranges of operation and resolutions can be varied according to the geometrical arrangementof the probes.
