Strain Sensor



The fiber optic Strain Sensor FBGS-01 is a long base strain gauge which measures tension or compression between two fixed points. It is based on Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) technology. The standard gauge length can be chosen between 250 mm and 2 meters. The sensor has connectors on both ends and can be used alone or in series as a part of an FBG sensor array. Installation and cabling for such arrays is much less expensive and less cumbersome than comparable electronic gauge networks.
