Fiber Optic Sensing Technology
Hawk Measurement offers an array of Fiber Optic Sensing Solutions. Fiber Optic Sensing is one of the most advanced and accurate ways to monitor long assets. Fiber optic sensing is a technology that uses optical fibers to detect changes in various physical and chemical properties such as temperature, strain, pressure, and chemical composition.
Different types of fiber optic sensing techniques use various methods to measure different properties. For example, distributed temperature sensing (DTS) measures temperature by analyzing the backscattered light from a fiber optic cable, while fiber optic strain sensing uses fiber optic gratings to measure the deformation or strain in a structure. As a leading provider of fiber optic sensing solutions, our team of experts can assist you with all your needs.
