Bestech Australia distributes fibre optic sensors from the European company, Fiber Sensing.
These sensors are based on optical fibre Bragg grating (FBG) technology, which is considered the most suitable and reliable technology for long-term sensing and structural health monitoring, having become the natural substitute for all conventional technologies available.
This allows for the development of advanced monitoring systems in markets such as civil and geotechnical engineering, power generation and distribution, railway and transportation, aerospace as well as oil and gas.
Currently there are fibre optic sensors for measuring strain, temperature, acceleration, tilt and pressure as well as measurement units and software packages. These sensors have all the advantages attributed to FBG technology including:
- High multiplexing capability
- Long-distance transmission
- EMI/RFI immunity
- Electric isolation
- Signal integrity
- Long-term stability
Additionally, the technology reveals an inherent serial multiplexing capacity and an ability to provide absolute measurements without the need for referencing. All of this means that these fibre optic sensors have excellent performance in hazardous environments and provide long-term reliability.
Bestech Australia can also assist with system design and complete solutions to suit any requirement.
