FBG Fiber-optic Strainmeter

FBG Fiber-optic Strainmeter TFM-104

This is an instrument to carry out strain measurement using FBG optical fiber sensors. It has four ports for connecting optical fibers. The use of wideband light source offers excellent anti-vibration tolerance and durability. It has functions of converting FBG sensor output into strain and also compensating the temperature dependence of the sensor. These functions enable highly accurate strain measurement when combined with our FBG sensors. In addition, by connecting the clock input and trigger input with our multi-recorders, synchronized measurement becomes possible with various sensors such as strain gauges, voltage signals and thermocouples. The LAN interface is provided for easy operation of this strainmeter by connecting a personal computer.
