Optimet - Single Mode Optical Fiber by HBM, Inc.

HBM offers OptiMet single mode optical fibers with and without Bragg grating measurement function. The OptiMet systems provide singlemode optical fibers with integrated functional grids.

OptiMet-OMF is a singlemode optical fiber designed for use in laboratory applications. It includes 13 fiber Bragg gratings and enables fiber optic strain measurement with a defined gauge factor.

Similar to OptiMet-OMF, OptiMet-PKF is a singlemode optical fiber but includes an additional rugged coating. It has 13 fiber Bragg gratings and enables fiber optic strain measurement with a defined gauge factor. It is suitable for outdoor applications.

Bending radii of up to 2.5mm and 10mm are possible with OptiMet-OMF and OptiMet-PKF, respectively.
