Optical Strain Gauges

Optical fiber sensors present undeniable advantages such as high fatigue limits, multiplexing and immunity to electromagnetic interferences. The HBM FiberSensing range of optical (FBG) strain gauges and sensors is the perfect choice for demanding testing and monitoring applications.

HBM FiberSensing offers two lines of optical strain gauges and sensors based on Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) technology:

  • The FS Line includes strain sensors in different formats and is most suited for large sensing networks. This line ensures connectivity along several kilometers of fiber without compromising the sensors signals.
  • The OP Line comprises strain sensors for high strain applications due to their outstanding resistance. With intrinsic bending capability, the strain gauges from the OP Line are available as linear gauges or strain rosettes.
