FBGs are reliable all-fiber optical components that have been used for making accurate and reliable temperature and strain measurements for over two decades. However, due to previous technical limitations, most applications in hot harsh environments were typically off limits. A new generation of T150 ruggedized Fiber Bragg Gratings are now available for operation in various metal prohibiting, corrosive, toxic, and chemically active environments to 260 Degrees Celsius. Protected by their Zeus PEEK outer layer, these new sensors are now solving measurement challenges in many existing and new markets. Optical sensors are widely used in industry and in research and development laboratories. Continue reading on itbusinessnet.com.
