The new FTS fibre optic displacement sensors are designed for flight test and similarly demanding applications. Weighing just 175 grams, the sensor electronics feature a 25 x 50 x 75mm enclosure with MIL-DTL-83513 Micro-D connector for power and output signals.
Philtec provides customized non-contact fibre optic sensors which are ideally suited for the extreme environments of many aerospace applications. Small probe size, wide sensor bandwidth and extreme temperature ranges are key advantages. These devices measure linear distance and displacement up to 50mm.
Typical applications include valve and actuator measurements, turbine shaft and blade tip dynamics, as well as satellite component testing in cryogenic chambers.
