Optical Tilt Sensor

Optical Tilt Sensor

Luna’s os8100 are Fiber Bragg grating (FBG) based high sensitivity, tilt sensors. Featuring a rugged and very stable monitoring capability that can be dispersed over long distances.

Product Description

The os8100 features a novel approach to tilt sensing by utilizing FBG technology to measure minute changes in deflection angles, all while being able to pair with various physical parameters e.g. strain, temperature, displacement, acceleration, pressure.

Installation is simple and repeatable with several mounting options to include wall, ceiling, and floor mounts. With a tilt range of ranges of 10° and a resolution of down to 0.002°, the os8100 series presents a unique capability for sensor deployments. Up to 256 os8100 sensors can be integrated on Luna’s HYPERION platform.

The os8100 series of sensors is compatible with ENLIGHT Sensing Analysis Software, which provides an integrated suite of tools for data acquisition, computation and analysis of optical sensor networks as well as the HYPERION platforms comprehensive Application Programming Interface (API) and examples written in LabVIEW, Python, Matlab, C++ and C#.
