HBM has expanded its range of optical strain transducers, which have been specifically developed to meet the demanding requirements of harsh applications.

Suitable for use in challenging environments, such as structure monitoring of pipelines and bridges and for measuring high strains, the latest range of sensors from HBM offer a wider strain measurement range for these types of applications, alongside greater stability and lower installation costs, compared to electrical strain gauges.

Featuring a rugged and flexible design, the latest range of strain gauges from HBM features steel-reinforced fibre cables and special strain relief and can be used for strains of at least ±2,000μm/m in a temperature range from -40°C to +80 ̊C.

Additionally, HBM provides all the necessary accessories and components for the installation of Strain Gauges. HBM also supports its customers with training and contract installation.
