HBM Provides The Complete Link To Test And Measurement Chain

Following the recent acquisition of FiberSensing, a leading provider of Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) based measurement and monitoring systems, HBM – a market leader in the field of test and measurement – is pleased to announce it is the only UK supplier to offer a complete range of products in the sphere of optical measurement technology.

Primarily used in structural testing and in the development of light weight materials – which are increasingly being used in the transport and building sector, mechanical engineering and the energy industry to significantly reduce weight – the inclusive range of products now available from HBM includes fiber optic Bragg sensors, such as strain gauges, strain, temperature and tilt sensors.  Also included within the range are accelerometers and interrogators which can be easily connected via TCP/IP to any standard PC using an Ethernet interface.

Featuring compact geometrical dimensions and high measurement stability, optical measurement technology is the ideal choice in materials testing at increased levels of strain and a high number of load cycles as, unlike electrical strain gauges, optical sensors offer immunity from these influences and are often the first choice for use in environments affected by strong electromagnetic interference.  In addition to this, system downtime is also significantly reduced due to the extremely high stability and long service life of the optical measurement chain.

This exciting new development for HBM means that it is now able to offer customers a complete range of highly innovative products in the field of optical measurement technology, enabling them to build their own monitoring solutions using high end instruments, sensors and software.
