Fiber Optic Displacement Sensor for Vacuum and High Magnetic Field

Problem Quartz fibers have excellent transmission over long lengths, but they are very expensive, so usually cost prohibitive. A customer recently asked for a model D171 sensor with 45-meter length for displacement measurements in vacuum and high magnetic field. Solution PHILTEC devised a 3-piece cost saving system, where only 10% of the model D171 probe … Continue reading
