Embedded strain sensor

Embedded strain sensor

The embedded Strain Sensor FBGS-01E is a strain sensor that is intended to become embedded into concrete structures in order to measure the strain variations between its anchoring points. The fiber is fixed inside a ruggedized housing and has a connector at both ends in order to make series configuration possible.


  • Detection of strain with sub-microstrain precision
  • Sensors can be placed in series hereby reducing the cabling to a minimum
  • Ruggedized housing that can be directly embedded into a concrete structure
  • Direct measurement of the strain, both tension as well as compression
  • The displacement can be derived from the distance between the anchoring points


The Embedded Strain Sensor FBGS-01E can be applied for the detection of strain changes in concrete structure to e.g. varying load conditions or crack and fissure formation. The sensor contains a certain amount of pre-tension in order to also monitor compression besides elongation. When temperature variations are expected, a temperature sensor is recommended for compensation purposes.
