HBM Test and Measurement has expanded its range of optical strain transducers, providing more flexibility in strain gauge measurement applications. The company’s FiberSensing optical interrogators and sensors are designed for both laboratory testing and field deployment across a range of industries including civil engineering, energy, R&D, aeronautics and gas pipelines.
The sensors can determine strain, temperature, acceleration, displacement and tilt in components, structures, and in environments where conventional technologies have reached their limits. Particular sensors can be used for extreme strains measuring up to ±10000 µm/m. Others are suited for operating under high temperatures of 100ºC.
