In this work the implementation of a sensor of optical fiber current is reported by means of a magnetic structure. The sensing element (magnetic structure) consists of a magnet placed in the center of a plastic membrane. The variation in the intensity of the light caused by a mirror adapted to the membrane allowed to detect the changes in the presence of a magnetic field produced by an alternating current. Its changes were detected optically. We design a circuit to convert the light to equivalent in data to be process by a PC. The data are read and by means of a program in software Labview, is the equivalent of current according to the intensity of detected magnetic field.
