Technica Optical Components releases new family of Cryogenic Strain Sensors

Share Article

The new T212 and T213 are Single-Mode Fiber (SM) based advanced Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) Packaged Surface Strain Sensors for use in environments from -270°C (~5K) to +40°C. Available with and without temperature compensation.

T213 Cryogenic Strain Sensor with Temperature Compensation

Immune to lightning and EMI, small, light, multiplexable, and highly reliable, our new family of field proven cryogenic strain sensors is a valuable tool for monitoring and controlling industrial and commercial processes, equipment and infrastructure that must operate at low temperature.

Technica Optical Components is pleased to announce its new family of Fiber Bragg Gratings based Strain Sensors for operation in Cryogenic environments to -270 Degrees Celsius.

The sensors' advanced unibody micro-structured design for temperature compensated strain measurements in ultra- low temperature environments uses two precision Technica made FBGs written into the fibers’ core and advanced materials technology for producing a transducer configuration of high resolution, precision, and repeatability.

ATEX compliant for use in explosive environments. Ready for direct mounting and exhibiting excellent wavelength to strain linearity. The full-scale (FS) accuracy and precision specifications take into account any hysteresis, non-linearities, and the repeatability of the sensor. The cryogenic sensors handling and installation is fast, easy and intuitive. Spot-weldable version for -270°C (~5K) to +120°C can be made available upon request. Fabricated using licensed and proprietary state-of-the-art laser manufacturing technologies and product designs.

"Demand for specialty Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors is growing as optical sensing applications continue their proliferation in aerospace, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) monitoring, research in cold environments, and many other fields. Immune to lightning and electro-magnetic interference (EMI), small, light, multiplexable, and highly reliable, our new family of field proven cryogenic strain sensors is a valuable tool for monitoring and controlling industrial and commercial processes, equipment and infrastructure that must operate at low temperatures. We are excited to further expand the envelope of available fiberoptic sensors in the market" stated Andrei Csipkes, President and CEO of Technica.
