How Optical Sensing Is Changing Structural Test Applications
Optical sensing provides unique advantages over the ubiquitous electrical sensors that are used in most physical measurement systems today. Electrical sensors continue to struggle with transmission loss and interference introduced on cables. Optical sensing avoids both of these problems, while providing other benefits for long-term installations since calibration and temperature drifting issues become nonissues or simple to fix with optical sensing technologies.
