Fiber Optic Sensors

Fiber Optic Sensors

Fiber optic sensors are a special type of sensor that uses fiber optic light guides to deliver the light to the sensing position. They work well for applications involving small targets, unfavorable conditions and tight areas. Glass fibers can be used in harsh environments without damage and are more rugged than plastic fiber optics. Plastic fiber optics are more flexible and cost-effective and can be cut to length. When applied correctly, fiber optic sensors solve many applications general purpose sensors can't solve.
