HBM Launches Optical Sensor with Temperature Compensation

HBM, which manufactures various measuring equipments for a wide range of industries, has introduced a new optical sensor named K-OTC, which is developed by the fiber Bragg technology. This sensor can compensate the dilatation produced by the thermal temperature.

HBM’s optical sensors such as K-OL or K-OR are extremely dependable on temperature variations. These sensors measure the thermal and mechanical strain that happens due to the variations in the temperature. However, to measure the mechanical strain alone, the thermal strain compensation needs to be measured.

The K-OTC has the catman AP measurement program, which can provide mathematical compensation for the thermal strain. This program is simple to apply and thus simplifies the task associated in the measurement of thermal strain compensation. These unique features allow the K-OTC optical sensor to be used in lab stress analyzing applications such as high voltage or materials testing applications.
