This contribution aims to be a reference to help researchers build up their own microwave heating systems for monitoring the temperature evolution of a payload with almost endlessly (limited by the batteries capacity of the measuring system) rotational movements. Its robustness is because it allows keeping sensors in place thus avoiding the fiber optics wringing/twisting while the payload is rotating. The proposed system facilitates the rotation of the temperature equipment located over the

The fiber optic sensors deployed from the temperature equipment ports to the measuring points are arranged with the rotation axis through a hollowed shaft to minimize mechanical stresses. The equipment operation, its configuration, and the data transmissions are controlled wirelessly by a laptop computer. The prototype presented in this paper was implemented for a total budget amount of 6500€.
