Strain Sense

Low Cost Distributed Sensing Platform


The Horizon Strain Sense is a low cost one-channel fiber optic sensing instrument for quasi-continuous strain monitoring. With over a 2,000 sensing points on one fiber, users are able to achieve spatially continuous real-time strain monitoring. The system replaces single-point strain sensing solutions such as strain gauges, to monitor multiple areas simultaneously, identifying strain fluctuation points quickly and accurately. Customers who replace single-point sensing solutions with a true distributed sensing platform enjoy significantly reduced installation time as well as labor cost savings

Strain Sense Facts

  • Adjustable

    The lead length is fully adjustable so users can place the sensor exactly where it needs to be.

  • Multi-Sensing

    Replace multiple sensing technologies in a single platform.

  • Reduces Risk

    Gain confidence in your testing data and model validation. Strain Sense’s fully distributed sensing provides the entire picture of what’s going on rather than a handful of data points.

  • Low cost

    Strain Sense offers true distributed strain sensing technology at the price level of point sensors

  • One monitored fiber with over 2,000 equally spaced sensors
  • Sensing length up to 13m
  • Software selectable spatial resolution down to 6.35 mm
  • Real-time, high-resolution distributed strain and temperature measurements
  • Acquisition time < 10s
  • Immune to EMI/RFI and radiation for reliable operation in demanding environments
  • Low latency networking capability
