Optical Strain Gage | os3155
Non-metallic Optical Strain Gage | os3200

The os3100 is a spot-welded or epoxy-mounted optical strain gage based on fiber Bragg grating (FBG) technology.

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 temperature compensation, the os3100 may be connected in series with an os4100, FBG Temperature Compensation Gage or an os4350, FBG Temperature Sensors.

SECURITY
Fiber Optic Interlock Switches | LCM-600
Intrusion Detection Platforms

FiberStrike® fiber optic interlock switches, developed and patented by Cleveland Electric Laboratories, are a state of the art solution for monitoring the status of virtually any access portal.

Benefitting from the nearly limitless working distances allowed by fiber optics, these interlock switches can be networked over a wide area while taking advantage of existing standard communication fiber networks. Additional advantages include the passive nature of each sensor with no need for power at any sensor location, immunity to environmental problems that plague electrically-based sensors, and the ability to network virtually any number of sensors over nonconductive optical fiber into a single monitoring system that can be tens of kilometers removed from the sensing area.

CEL’s FiberStrike® platforms are customarily used to provide 2’ X 6’ intrusion detection zones. Numerous platforms can be linked together to create long expanses of continuous monitoring with multiple individually-addressed zones.
