FISO Technologies launches new high-speed fiber optic signal conditioner for Hero and EED testing

    QUEBEC CITY, Oct. 9 /CNW/ - FISO Technologies Inc., a subsidiary of
Roctest Ltd (TSX: RTT) and a leading manufacturer of high-quality fiber optic
sensors and measurement systems for challenging and demanding applications,
today launched the FPI-HS/HE signal conditioner, a new generation module
optimized to measure small current with more resolution and speed. This module
has been developed for Hazardous Electromagnetic Radiation Ordnance (HERO) and
Electro-Explosive Devices (EED) testing used in military, automotive and
aerospace applications, such as in aircrafts and weapons systems.
    "This new signal conditioner is intended to complete FISO's line of
products for HERO and EED testing. The work of our experienced engineering
team has allowed FISO to achieve an incredibly high acquisition rate with this
system. The system is running at 15kHz, which is 60 times faster than the
FPI-HERO, the first system of the EVOLUTION line of product dedicated to HERO
testing," said Maxim Vachon-Savary, Product Line Manager at FISO Technologies.
    The FPI-HS/HE fiber optic signal conditioner is compatible with FISO's
FOT-HERO sensor. By using the Company's White-Light Interferometry technology
and more advanced electro-optical components than the FPI-HERO, the FPI-HS/HE
module achieves an acquisition rate 15 times faster than competitive
technology. In addition, the built-in temperature compensation system of the
FPI-HS/HE maintains the accuracy even when the test environment temperature
varies. Recent advances in signal processing, software algorithms and sensor
manufacturing process allow direct measurement of the induced current.
