What are fiber optics sensors?

Fiber optics sensors and the advantages of fiber optic sensors

The fiber optic sensor has an optical fiber connected to a light source to allow for detection in tight spaces. It consists of plastic or glass fiber optics. Fiber optic cables are used in combination with appropriate evaluation unit for various applications. 


Advantages of Fiber optic sensors are:

  • Easy installation in limited spaces 
  • Detection of small targets
  • Suitable for harsh environment (Rugged housing)
  •  Strong light source for long ranges.
