The newly developed optical sensor line newLight by HBM enables large strain measurement ranges at increased long-term stability. It is the ideal choice for structural health monitoring due to its fast and easy installation and its resistance to environmental conditions such as humidity, rust, and salt even over extremely long distances.
The compatibility with standard telecom cables makes this line very cost efficient – especially for medium-to-high channel applications! The newLight range is based on the Fiber Bragg Grating technology and offers optical sensors for measurements of strain, temperature, acceleration, and tilt.
