As the use of optical sensors based on Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) technology becomes more and more widespread, both in long term complex monitoring systems and simple short term structural testing, HBM offers some valuable information and advice in its latest webinar, which takes place on 27 April 2017.

Traditionally associated with complex handling and fragility, ‘Field installations of optical structural health monitoring systems: Lessons learned over a decade’ dispels this myth and shares the dos and don’ts involved in installing systems based on FBG technology.

Used to determine strain, temperature, acceleration, displacement and tilt in components, structures and in environments where conventional technologies have reached their limits, FBG technology opens the door to a range of possibilities.

Also used to test structures and materials with high levels of strain, high numbers of load cycles, high electromagnetic noise or in highly explosive environments, optical sensors based on FBG technology also enable the ability to monitor the condition of large structures in harsh environments, using different types of sensors, which are connected in line over long distances and interrogated by a single instrument.

Suitable for a variety of applications including civil engineering, energy, and aerospace, to name but a few, optical products are designed to be as easy to use and understand as possible for users with limited experience.

Exclusively available from the HBM Academy, this informative webinar on FBG Technology has been designed to fit in with challenging time constraints which can often make attending training courses difficult.

Each webinar, which normally takes a maximum of 30 minutes, can be easily accessed at a later date or simply used as a refresher course.  In addition, all registered attendees will receive a link to the webinar, via email, after the presentation.

All HBM webinars are free of charge and open to anyone.  However, spaces are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis.

HBM UK Ltd

Our extensive range covers everything from strain gages via measuring transducers to analog and digital amplifiers. Since our amplifiers can be connected to a PC, measured values can be further processed and then meaningfully displayed with the aid of operator-friendly analysis software specifically designed for measurement technology.

Since our amplifiers can be connected to a PC, measured values can be further processed and then meaningfully displayed with the aid of operator-friendly analysis software specifically designed for measurement technology. Innovative new products in the field of transducer development, signal conditioning and software are witness to our competence and up-to-date product know-how.

In addition to these standard products, HBM also provides customized solutions for sensor technology and electronics as well as complete systems. Our products and solutions are used in all sectors of industry. Our subsidiary companies and over 60 branch offices and agencies worldwide are responsible for providing expert support for measurement technology solutions on site.

The “complete measuring chain from one supplier” approach has many advantages:
The complete measuring chain comes from HBM. This means that all components in a system are adapted to work with one another.
Just one point of contact for everything you need. This saves you both time and money.
Our long experience means we understand your needs. Practical solutions come naturally to us.
