FBGS Technologies GmbH - a leading supplier of advanced fiber-optic sensing solutions and components based on Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG) technology - has secured a single-digit million growth financing.
The Strain gage chain SGC-01 is the fiber optic equivalent of several electrical strain gauges, as the chain can be configured to customer needs. In this way an entire strain distribution can be monitored using just one fiber.
The Strain Gage Chain SGC-01 is a spliceless chain of several fiber optic Strain Gages in series. These Strain Gages are the fiber optic equivalent of electrical strain gages. The Strain Gages can be mounted directly on the surface of a structure by means of an adhesive. In this way, the fiber sensor makes direct contact with the surface and therefore accurately measures the strain at the surface.
