FIBER IN METAL TUBES

SonoSens®

We created Sonosens in partnership with another premium manufacturer in the photonics sector, OFS. Together, we developed the most advanced acoustic sensor on the market. Sonosens massively enhances the acoustic transmission for professional DAS (Distributed Acoustic Sensing) Applications, offering a 40% better acoustic transmission than most other sensors. 

The design is unique. The sensor is protected with a metallic layer, creating a robust cable that guarantees the maximum lifetime of the application. It has become the popular choice for a wide range of acoustic sensing projects. If you’re looking for a durable fiber optic sensing cable that outperforms the competition almost twice as much, this is it. Sonosens has set new standards in acoustic sensing, and it’s a product we’re proud to make available.
