Optical temp compensation sensor

Temperature compensation for more accurate measurement results

Darmstadt, Germany –?? K-OTC is a fiber Bragg technology-based sensor that enables compensation for thermal temperature dilatation.

Optical sensors, for example K-OR or K-OL from HBM are highly temperature dependent. In the event of temperature variations during strain measurement, the resulting mechanical and thermal strain is measured.

However, if mechanical strain only is to be measured, compensate for the thermal strain needs to be performed. With K-OTC, catman??AP measurement software enables mathematical compensation to be achieved.

The software is easy to use and mathematical compensation, too, becomes a simple task.

Due to its innovative properties, the K-OTC optical sensor is particularly suitable for applications in experimental stress analysis, for example in materials testing or high-voltage applications.
