newLight FS70 Multiple Fiber Bragg Gratings

Based on the Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) technology and the newLight optical sensor series, the FS70 configurable arrays are optical fibers with multiple FBGs and high-performance coatings. These are optimally suited for multipoint measurement of strain in laboratories and in all kinds of industries.

To maximize results, these can be configured with a selection of options:

  • Selectable number of FBGs, wavelengths, and distances
  • Selectable cable types: braid, aramid, armor or no cable
  • Selectable connector type: FC/APC or SC/APC or no connector


  • Accurate measurements on curved surfaces
  • Long-term stability without drift
  • Immunity to all electromagnetic interferences

Precise measurement results with long-term stability


  • High resistance to fatigue
  • Outstanding bending capability
  • Resistance to corrosion, also in humid and salty environments
  • Fewer cabling requirements

Extremely resilient and suited to indoor and outdoor applications


  • Single, ready-to-install optical fiber
  • Light-weight optical fibers and reduced cabling
  • Fitted for hybrid measurements (optical and conventional)

Easy-to-use with little installation effort
