Fiber Optic Grating Sensors

Measurement of strain or temperature in harsh environments often requires specialist equipment, preparations or processes. Traditional electric technologies can sometimes only be used once sophisticated barriers, shielding methods or other protection is in place. FBGS uses draw tower technology to manufacture their fiber optic grating sensors. This results in a product that is not only mechanically stronger than traditional Fiber Bragg Gratings (>5% strain) making manual handling easier, but due to the unique composition of the glass it can be mounted on intricate structures requiring twists and turns not normally associated with optical fiber based measurement systems. Thus, the optical fiber is suited to industrial sensing applications. The opportunities for manufacturers of sensors and transducers in industries as diverse as medical, composite, metal processing, oil & gas, weighing and wind turbines are now starting to take advantage of this.
