Optical Fiber Sensors vs. Conventional Electrical Strain Gauges for Infrastructure Monitoring Applications
- FBG principles
- Bragg wavelengths
- Monitoring applications
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, accelerometer, and tilt.
Choose individual sensors with or without plugs or select a group of sensors connected on the same line for ease of installation:
HBM offers the complete product portfolio for your monitoring application: from the sensors (strain, tilt, temperature and accelerometer) to the matching DAQ modules to the software.
Read how HBM and ITER – the International Fusion Energy Organization - achieved to install optical sensors capable of bearing particular environmental constraints on different mechanical structures of superconducting magnets.
