A novel time-division-multiplexing fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor for multipoint temperature warning sensor is proposed and demonstrated. A multiwavelength pulsed laser based on a multichannel matched FBG is employed. The sensor array consists of multiple uniform FBGs at different positions and with different nominal wavelengths. When the temperature exceeds the threshold at a certain position, the light at the corresponding time slot and wavelength can be detected. The sensor provides a simple and flexible solution to locate the abnormal temperature increase with different tolerable thresholds at different locations.
