Installation and Measurement of Optical Strain Gauges

Optical strain gauges are used where conventional strain gauge meet their limits.

Even under unfavorable EMC conditions, with high alternating strain or long distances between the measuring point and data acquisition, optical strain gauges provide reliable results.

If you would like to get involved in this technology, this seminar is just right for you.
