Temperature-/Strain Measurement

FBG based fiber optical sensors for temperature and strain measurement are completely immune to interferences from electromagnetic, electrostatic or radio frequency sources.  It is possible to install them in locations with severe electrical noise such as power generation and transmission plants. FBG sensors are 100% intrinsically safe and can be used in the most explosive environments. Furthermore, FBG sensors are highly suited for measuring an extended length of several km, since several thousand FBGs can be written into one fiber and simultaneously interrogated by one multi-channel instrument.
