T210 / Mini Surface Strain Sensor


T210 Spot Welding Installation Instructions

T210 & T211 Epoxy Installation Instructions


The T210 is a Single-Mode Fiber (SM) based Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) Mini Packaged Surface Sensor for use in environments from -20°C to +120°C.

Available in a wide range of optical specifications. Ultra-small packaging. Ready for direct mounting steel construction exhibiting excellent wavelength to strain linearity. Calibration service available upon request. The full-scale (FS) accuracy and precision specifications take into account any hysteresis, non-linearities, and the repeatability of the sensor. The T210 sensor handling and installation are fast, easy and intuitive. Delivers the advantages inherent to FBG based sensors. Immune to lightning and electromagnetic interference (EMI).

T210 series Surface Strain Sensors are fabricated using licensed and proprietary state-of-the-art laser manufacturing technologies and product designs. The sensor packaging described herein represents the most popular configuration and can be customized.

Key Features:

Strain and temperature linearity. The T210 design for both temperature and strain measurements uses a precision-made FBG written into the fibers’ core for producing a transducer configuration of high linearity, resolution, accuracy, and precision. SLSR & BW options.

Ultra-small packaging format. The T210 sensor is well suited for precisely measuring strains in small spaces and can be manufactured with ultra-low bend radius fiber.

Pre-Strain level is set at the factory. The T210 pre-strain level can be factory set to accommodate any strain range within the strain limits of -2000ue to +7,000ue. Typically it is set for the whole range.

Spot-welded. The T210 is designed to be surface mounted by spot-welding. Installation video available upon request.

Ready to be daisy-chained. Well suited for projects that include the need to monitor strain at one or many locations. Provided as single connectorized sensors or in ready to install arrays of various lengths and with a flexible number of sensors.

Low cost and field-proven. For demanding projects that require both low cost per sensing point and stable operation for long-term.
