Micron Optics Optical Strain Gage Offerings Continue to Grow

Micron Optics, Inc., the leading provider of innovative equipment for fiber optic sensing, announces the new os3500 Optical Strain Sensor. This new rugged, optical strain sensor represents the latest in Fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor technology and is optimized exclusively for embedded applications.

The os360, released in 2004, was the first in Micron Optics’ family of long-gage, steel reinforced optical strain sensors. It revolutionized fiber packaging and FBG anchoring technology at a time when most fiber optic sensors were very basic, even crude.

The os360 was replaced in 2008 by the even more rugged, waterproof os3600 optical strain gage. The os3600 continues to be very popular and is active in hundreds of locations around the world measuring strain in bridges, tunnels, mines, and geo structures. Its 0.25 or 1.0 meter gage length is particularly useful for strain measurement in nonhomogeneous materials, such as concrete… To read the full press release, click here.
