FBGS is a Germany / Belgium based developer and manufacturer of high strength Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs), Interrogators, Sensors and custom-made fiber optic sensing solutions. Therefore, FBGS has developed two unique and fully automated production processes for FBGs which result in very high quality and cost-effective sensing components with unique optical and mechanical characteristics.
FBGS’s products are suitable for both standard and bespoke applications in industries such as: medical, composite, transport, process, civil & geo, telecom and R&D. FBGS supplies ‘Draw Tower Gratings’ – DTG® and ‘FemtoSecond Gratings’ – FSG® as an OEM component and our products can today be found in many applications and products developed by our customers worldwide.
FBGS offers high strength Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs), Interrogators, Sensors and custom-made fiber optic sensing solutions.The growing interconnectability of people, devices and machines has led to a rapidly increasing need for sensing solutions allowing to measure a variety of parameters in a broad range of applications. Optical fibers are light weight, passive and unobtrusive sensing wires with a thickness comparable to a human hair. Sensing features can be tailored to the needs of the application and the unprecedented multiplexing capabilities allows to move away from traditional discrete measurement points to continuous measurements visualizing strain and temperature gradients, pressure, multi-directional force, curvature and shape information. The technology is today being used in various industries ranging from industrial processing, structural health monitoring and energy to aerospace, medical and safety & security.
We offer three types of DTG® with unique characteristics compared to classically produced FBGs, such as extremely high breaking-strength, spliceless array configuration and uniform coating coverage. FBG parameters and coating material can be selected based on customer needs.
The TC-01 is a versatile high-precision chain with multiple sensors that can be configured to customer needs. The length of the tube is 15cm and the temperature precision is 1°C. The Temperature Chain TC-01 is a spliceless chain of multiple high-precision fiber optic emperature sensors in series on a single fiber. The sensors are all contained in a 1.2mm stainless steel tube which is directly connectorised on one end using a spliceless pigtail.
The FBG-Scan 90X is a dynamic, precise measurement devices for Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors based on spectrometer technology. The system offers a cost effective solution and is offered as a 4 or 8 channel system. All sensors can be monitored with a sampling rate of 400Hz or 222 Hz respectively. The system has a high wavelength stability of 0,3pm at full measurement speed and has an absolute wavelength accuracy of 10pm.
