FOX-TEK FT Sensors are fabricated using standard telecommunications fiber and connectors, in varying lengths depending upon need. Bare sensors can be applied to any part of a structure (e.g. around a pillar or pipe, along a girder). Coil sensors are provided in differing sizes in oblong or circular shapes, with or without central hole allowances to enable other measurements such as ultrasound. Both of these sensor families are available in normal or high temperature ranges. Ruggedized sensors are designed to be embedded into concrete foundations or bolted into support structures. Specification sheets are listed below. Readouts are temperature-compensated and pressure-compensated when required.
For a general introduction see the Primer on FT Sensors. Specifications are available as shown below:
