O4: Fiber Optic Sensing: A Visible Alternative

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the past decade, fiber optic sensing has advanced and is emerging as a fitting alternative to traditional electrical sensors, yet not many realize the potential and advantages of this technology. Composed only of glass, fiber optic sensors are intrinsically safe and offer advantages over electrical sensors; they are not sensitive to electromagnetic interference (EMI), can be remoted located (upwards of 25km's away) and can be used in harsh environments. These sensors can be applied to measure mechanical forces such as pressure, flow, load and temperature (to name just a few).

This presentation will highlight optical sensor manufacturing processes, and real-world applications of fiber optic sensors versus conventional strain gauges in industries including: Transportation, Oil and Gas, and Aerospace. A customer case study, evaluating the performance of optical gauges vs. foil strain gauges with Celestica will be presented and the results will be discussed.
