OptiMet: Optical Strain Gauge Chain
OptiMet-PKF 2&4 Ruggedized Optical Fiber Chain
OptiMet-PKF 2 & 4 for outdoor use
The OptiMet-PKF is a singlemode optical fiber with high performance ORMOCER® coating with an additional peek layer for ruggedized operation. The coatings ensure optimal strain transmission both to traction and compression directions.
It has 2 or 4 fiber Bragg gratings equally spaced by 60 cm for multipoint strain measurements. With an outstanding bending capability, it can be installed with bending radii up to 10 mm.
The OptiMet-PKF is delivered connected to a 1.5m pigtail with 3 mm buffer and an FC/APC connector.
