Title (EN) OPTICAL FIBRE SENSOR ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE DETECTION OPTIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An optical sensor assembly comprising a plurality of optical fibre sensor coils optically coupled by optical fibre; and an elongate support element, on which said plurality of optical fibre sensor coils and optically coupling optical fibre are mounted is disclosed. The support element has an elastic limit such that when said support element is bent away from the elongate axis, the optical fibre fracture limit is reached before the elastic limit is reached. An array of these optical sensor assemblies, the mandrel on which the sensing coils are mounted and their method of manufacture are also disclosed.
(FR)Ensemble détection optique qui comprend une pluralité de bobines de détection à fibre optique couplées optiquement par fibre optique ; et un élément support allongé, sur lequel sont montées la pluralité de bobines de détection à fibre optique et la fibre optique de couplage. L'élément support présente une limite élastique telle que lorsque cet élément fléchit de manière à s'éloigner de l'axe allongé, la limite de rupture de la fibre optique est atteinte avant que la limite élastique soit atteinte. L'invention concerne aussi un groupement de tels ensembles détection optique, le mandrin sur lequel les bobines sont montées et un procédé de fabrication de ceux-ci.
