Webinar: Innovative Fiber Optic Safety And Position Sensor Solution For Medical And Industrial Applications

Sponsor: Micronor LLC
Duration: 1 Hour


Fiber optic technology continues to gain adoption in a wide range of industrial applications due to its inherent attributes that make it immune to electromagnetic interference, high-voltage environments, magnetic fields, and lightning. Besides, these products can operate over long distances and are inherently safe in explosive environments. Fiber optic sensors offer measurement solutions where electrical and electronic circuits simply cannot reliably or safely function, as well as enabling a new range of OEM equipment and applications that in the past could not be designed without fiber optic technology.

This webinar will discuss how industrial machine and medical device manufacturers and researchers, can leverage fiber optic position sensors to get accurate, repeatable feedback in challenging operating environments and how fiber optic signaling devices improve safety in hazardous locations.

Attendees will:

  • Learn principles of Fiber optic sensor technology and its benefits
  • Understand how manufacturers are using fiber optic sensors in their applications to address some unique engineering challenges
  • Learn how to engineer an end-to-end fiber optic sensor system
  • Gain knowledge about the latest fiber optic position sensors and signaling devices
