Every building requires adequate monitoring and maintenance. This is even more important for major construction projects under heavy strain and usage, such as:


Fiber optic strain sensing systems can provide the necessary monitoring of such major construction projects. They require little maintenance and expenditures, and the data that they provide can ensure that maintenance work is performed only when completely necessary (Predictive Maintenance). Thus fiber optic sensing for structural health monitoring (SHM) can be considered a significant cost-saving measure.

In delicate construction projects, near landslides, or unstable terrain, SHM can provide valuable information and prevent construction crew and machinery accidents.

With a centralized Internet of Things (IoT) systems, fiber optic sensing monitoring can be integrated easily and help reduce the costs even further.

Why Fiber Optics

Long Lifetime

Almost no maintenance over the whole lifetime.

Passive Sensor

No electrical power at the measurement point needed if used as a sensor.

Long Distance

Monitoring (50 km and more) of remote locations and objects, if used as a sensor.

Resists High Pressures and High Temperatures

Resists extreme temperatures from -269 to 700+ degrees

For Harsh and Explosive Environments

Resistant to corrosion, lightning, etc.

Immune to EMI

Electromagnetic interference
