By Manufacturing AUTOMATION
OZ Optics Limited has developed a meter designed to measure
the lengths of optical fibres from a few millimetres to 500 metres. The system
can measure lengths of multimode, single-mode and polarization maintaining fibres.
The device works by measuring the time it takes an optical signal to travel
along and back through a fibre.
are updated once per second to allow continuous monitoring of the fibre length,
which also allows the device to be used as an optical strain sensor.
