S-line Sentinel 2.0

Basic characteristics

Data collection is one of the most crucial parts of modern monitoring systems. Experts and structural engineers need a robust and user-friendly software solution for executing their tasks – to focus on the evaluation of the measured object (structure) and not to be bothered with the unnecessary theory and working principles of fiber optics or fiber bragg gratings. We developed our new data acquisition software, Sentinel 2.0, keeping all these requirements in mind.

  • Sentinel 2.0 –  Enhanced and easy-to-use data acquisition software developed for S-line Scan interrogators.
  • Sentinel 2.0 –  Provides tools for analysis, collection, storage, management and transfer of FBG based sensing data.
  • Sentinel 2.0 –  Offers communication with external control systems via integrated API.
  • Sentinel 2.0 –  Is supplied free of charge with each S-line Scan interrogator.

Sentinel API

  • The API server requires to be started within the Sentinel application and use/read the settings/values from the software environment and send to the API server as JSON. This means that you need to set-up the sensor chain within the Sentinel software in order to read the required data.
