The highly sensitive FS64 optical tilt sensor is well suited for determining small angle variations of structures
Based on the newLight optical sensor line, the FS64 tilt sensor is a ruggedized Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) inclinometer designed to measure very small angle variations towards the vertical. The sensor uses two FBGs in a push-pull configuration for effective temperature compensation.
It can be used in a large range of monitoring applications such as sustaining walls, bridge piles, tunnels, or buildings. The measurement of tilt in different directions is possible with the use of multiple sensors.
- Ruggedized packing and electrical passiveness make it suited for potentially explosive atmospheres, high voltage areas, and intense electromagnetic fields
Effective even under aggressive environments and adverse conditions such as humidity and salt
- Effective temperature cross-effect compensation (<3milideg/ºC) by the employment of two FBGs in a push-pull configuration
Fitted for long-term measurements with temperature changes
- Stress-free connection with other FBG-based transducers and compatibility with most optical interrogators
Cost-effective shared equipment and simpler sensing networks
