Fibers Get Rugged to Serve Demanding Sensing Applications

Share Article

Technica expands its product family to include Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) arrays packaged inside glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) cables, in GFRP tapes and ribbons, in armored cables, and in stainless-steel cables for sensing applications.

Technica GFRP FBG Arrays

Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer FBG sensors are particularly suitable for demanding projects that require both low cost per sensing point and stable operation over the long term

Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer FBG sensors are particularly suitable for demanding projects that require both low cost per sensing point and stable operation over the long term, as often requested in civil engineering, geotechnical applications, energy, aerospace, marine, railways, advanced land vehicles, industrial, security, fire monitoring, and mining, as well as for use in materials development and testing labs across many industries. More information is available in our recently published paper entitled Reinforced FBG Sensors Serve Demanding Applications now available for free download on our website.

“As a direct result of years of development, our enabling technological break-through for the T100-T140 family of FBG Arrays and Cables consists of the successful recipe and implementation of tight process controls for the ruggedization and enhancement of sensitivity of acrylate, polyimide, and gold coated Fiber Bragg Grating arrays via various “second layer” materials including GFRP and PVC” with no degradation to the properties of the embedded Fiber Bragg Grating sensors, over lengths from less than one meter to multiple kilometers” stated Tommy Jin, Chief Operating Officer of Technica.
