Important Note:

It should be realized that certain combinations of options are not achievable for all models. For example, it is not reasonable to expect to achieve high frequency response when combining replaceable tips with long fiberoptic cables and dark targets. Please consult with the factory when there are questions regarding such issues.

Options FOR SENSORS

You can link to descriptive details on many of these options by clicking on the option letter in the table below.

The standard PHILTEC sensor package provides a stainless steel sensor tip, a 3 foot long fiberoptic cable sheathed with PVC over steel monocoil, and DC-20 KHz bandwidth amplifier or DMS signal processing unit as one integral unit with the fiberoptic cable potted into the electronic enclosure. Many options are available whereby the sensor tip, fiberoptic cable and/or the sensor electronics can be customized. Several options can be combined into one unit and specified using the following format: Model D100-BC1LT for analog units or Model DMS-RC100-BC1LT for digital units.
