For 60 years, OPTEL-TEXYS has been the specialist of non-invasive optical sensors. The company enjoys worldwide recognition for its high-speed and accurate sensors in the market sectors of the rotating machines and turbines.
Measurement solutions cover several industries like Transportation – Automotive, Aerospace, Naval, Railway – and Nuclear and Renewable Energy, Agriculture, Heavy Industry and Mining.
Our developments focus on the field of CO² reduction, Non-Destructive Control, preventive and predictive maintenance, monitoring and control, safety, durability and reliability, for test bench and on-board measurement.
Versatility and customization of our sensor and optical probes offers suitable products to numerous domains of applications, from test rig to embedded measurement.
- Speed measurement
- Torsional vibration
- Detection into liquids
- Speed into ball-bearings
The products offered by OPTEL-TEXYS are speed sensors connected to optical fibres and operating on the detection of contrasting periodic elements.
Sensors contain the photoelements used for the emission and reception of near infrared light. They are often plug&play with the measurement systems.
How do you choose your product? Refer to the applications for which they would be suitable as well as the technical characteristics: bandwidth, response time, connectivity, output signals.
Our fibre optic probes are an extension of the sensors, allowing close detection while being exposed to the stresses of the test environment.
How to choose your product? Depending on the measurement environment: temperature, presence of liquid, confined area, size of rotating elements.
Among the accessories offered, you will find our zebra tapes which contribute to the quality of detection.
Also, the splitter boxes, which provide adaptability of the sensors to expert systems.
Other accessories also offer additional functions to sensors and optical probes.
OPTEL-TEXYS offers this instructional video detailing the steps for mounting and securing a fibre optic probe to the 152 Series sensors. For disassembly, the same steps are followed in reverse.
TORQUE MEASUREMENT WITHOUT A MECHANICAL TORQUEMETER
3 French SMEs, including OPTEL-TEXYS, have implemented an innovative optical solution to meet the needs of one of them. CSTM, which develops a high-speed electric motor and needs to measure torque. The company is facing several difficult issues that conventional torquemeters cannot overcome: the measurement must be carried out without added inertia, without integration constraints and at very high speeds.
