FBG Sensors for Large Sensing Networks
Robust optical sensors for measuring strain, temperature, tilt, acceleration and displacement in a wide range of applications.
FBG Gauges for High Strain Applications
Optical strain gauges with outstanding bending capability (6 micron core fiber) and high performance coatings.
The benefits of measuring with light
Reduce your installation costs
A single fiber can handle multiple measurements. With optical sensors from HBM you benefit from reduced wiring requirements. Several optical sensors can be used on a single fiber. The optical measurement chain is individually adapted to suit your requirements.
Get high-precision test results even in difficult environments and materials
Optical FBG sensors enable you to test the fatigue strength of your components. Stress testing can be conducted even in materials with high levels of strain, and with high numbers of load cycles. You get consistent and accurate test results even in adverse ambient conditions, such as in high-voltage systems.
Acquire reliable data whatever the distance between your optical strain gauges and the measurement system
The effects of distance and cable length on the test result can be neglected with optical strain gauges. Even if your data acquisition system is located hundreds of yards from the measuring points, the use of optical sensor technology will not negatively affect the quality of your test results.
