Fibos technology offers a unique gauge that has many benefits over traditional electrical gauges. Foil strain gauges, the common device used for measuring strain, is a precision resistor that when it deforms due to a mechanical force or a change in temperature, changes resistance. This technology was invented in the 1950’s and has remained unchanged since.
Our technology offers the following advantages over foil strain gauges:
- EMI Immune
- Inherently intrinsically safe
- Transmission distance (the amplifier can be 25km+ away from the sensor, connected through a single fiber optic cable)
- Light weight gauge and routing cable to the gauge
- Multiplexing multiple sensors to a single fiber
