The sensors presented in this chapter are fiber optic intensity modulated vibrations sensors which are non-contact (extrinsic sensor) to the vibrating object. Three sensors presented make use of non-contact vibration measurement method with plastic fiber using distinct designs, improvement of the sensor response and advantages of one sensor over the other for diverse applications. First discussed about dual plastic optical fiber vibration sensor design and its response. Secondly, discussed about 1x2 fused coupler plastic optical fiber vibration sensor design with advantages over the first one. Finally, discussed about the 2x2 fused coupler plastic optical fiber vibration sensor design along with advantages than other two methods. At the end reported the final results with comparison.
