Accurate strain sensing designed for harsh environments


Insensys makes accurate strain sensors that don't fail. They are designed to have a 25 year life and work reliably in wet, hot, cold or vibrating environments. Other benefits are that they are lighting resistant and not affected by EMI emissions. We have built over 3000 systems primarily for the Wind Turbine market, to measure blade bending.

17 years of expertise in strain sensing

Insensys (Intelligent Sensing Systems) is a privately owned global leading supplier of fibre optic measurement systems. We supply strain measurement systems to many leading Wind Turbine manufacturers, as well as customising core technology for applications in Oil & Gas, Aerospace, Marine and other markets.

Insensys is based near Southampton in UK, employing around 50 people. We design and manufacture on site, and deliver systems to our customers in Europe, Asia and the US.

Founded in 2002 as an independent start-up, the original business grew well and divisions were acquired by Schlumberger and subsequently Moog Inc. Following Moog’s divesture from it’s Wind Energy business operations, in 2019 the existing management team re-acquired the business and reverted to our original name, Insensys. 

Our systems have been operating in Wind turbines for more than 12 years with minimal service and maintenance requirements, and we have continued to evolve our products and support as we’ve learnt through experience.

Today the business boasts a strong customer base and order book, experienced engineering team supporting design, operation and installation processes; customised and volume production capabilities; and an exciting technology roadmap which guides our research and development.
