The os3610 is based on fiber Bragg grating (FBG) technology and is available two gage lengths of 25 or 100 cm. It is intended exclusively for surface mounting. Each end of the os3610 is attached to the structure via rigid brackets that are either welded, bolted, epoxied, or grouted to the surface of a concrete, rock, steel, ...
  • Strain Sensitivity: 1.2 pm/με
  • Gage Length: 250 mm
  • Operating Temperature Range: -40 - 80 deg C
  • Strain Limits: -5,000 - 5,000 με
Data Sheet
The os3600 is based on fiber Bragg grating (FBG) technology and is available two gage lengths of 25 or 100 cm. It is intended exclusively for embedding in concrete structures. Disk ends form a solid bond to surrounding concrete or grout. Universal ends allow the user to employ bolt-on, weld-on, or custom end brackets for attachment ...
  • Strain Sensitivity: 1.2 pm/με
  • Gage Length: 250 mm
  • Operating Temperature Range: -40 - 80 deg C
  • Strain Limits: -2,500 - 2,500 με
Data Sheet
The os3500 Embeddable Strain Sensor measures average strain over the length of the gage while providing integrated temperature compensation. It is based on fiber Bragg grating (FBG) technology. The os3500 is intended exclusively for embedding in concrete structures. Disk ends form a solid bond to surrounding concrete or grout. A ...
  • Strain Sensitivity: 1.2 pm/με
  • Gage Length: 110 mm
  • Operating Temperature Range: -40 - 80 deg C
  • Strain Limits: -2,500 - 2,500 με
Data Sheet
The os3200 is based on fiber Bragg grating (FBG) technology. It has a self adhesive backing that holds the sensor body in place and protects the FBG while epoxy is injected. The epoxy encapsulates the FBG and bonds it to a structure’s surface. Installation time is just a few minutes. Measurements can be taken after the epoxy cures in ...
  • Strain Sensitivity: 1.2 pm/με
  • Gage Length: 10 mm
  • Operating Temperature Range: -40 - 80 deg C
  • Strain Limits: -5,000 - 5,000 με
Data Sheet
Optimized for outdoor installations on steel structures, the os3155’s stainless steel carrier holds the FBG in tension and protects the fiber during installation. Since there are no epoxies holding the fiber to the carrier, long term stability is ensured by design. The design is similar to the os3150 rugged strain gage but the os3155 ...
  • Strain Sensitivity: 1.2 pm/με
  • Gage Length: 50 mm
  • Operating Temperature Range: -40 - 80 deg C
  • Strain Limits: -2,500 - 2,500 με
Data Sheet
Optimized for outdoor installations on steel structures, the os3150’s stainless steel carrier holds the FBG in tension and protects the fiber during installation. Since there are no epoxies holding the fiber to the carrier, long term stability is ensured by design. For temperature compensation, the os3150 may be connected in series ...
  • Strain Sensitivity: 1.4 pm/με
  • Gage Length: 75 mm
  • Operating Temperature Range: -40 - 80 deg C
  • Strain Limits: -2,500 - 2,500 με
Data Sheet
The os3100 Optical Strain Gage is designed to make fiber handling easy and sensor installation fast and repeatable. Its stainless steel carrier holds the FBG in tension and protects the fiber during installation. Since there are no epoxies holding the fiber to the carrier, long term stability is ensured by design. For ...
  • Strain Sensitivity: 1.4 pm/με

Invented by Edward Simmons and Arthur C. Ruge in 1938, the strain gage utilizes the principles of electrical conductance to measure a physical force. The ability of a metal to stretch or compress is the characteristic that allows a strain gage to operate. Today, strain gages are commonly used in experimental fields for stress analysis. For example, their ability to measure fatigues in metal is important in the aerospace and automotive industries for ensuring safe and efficient machinery. By testing the amount of strain a material can take, engineers can determine the strongest and best materials for machines like automobiles and airplanes.
