The electric power infrastructure is a vast network of cabling, power stations, and electric stations. It needs to operate 24/7, to withstand all kinds of attacks, such as natural disasters and theft. The value of copper is rising globally, and the thieves are becoming more daring and industrious in their attempts.
Fiber optic sensing technology is proving to be a cheap and effective solution for all these problems, costing the utility companies millions of dollars. Fiber optic temperature sensors and fiber optic strain sensors can monitor crucial metrics alongside the power lines for kilometers. They require little maintenance and don’t need electricity to run.
Why Fiber Optics
Almost no maintenance over the whole lifetime.
No electrical power at the measurement point needed if used as a sensor.
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
