Sensuron (Austin, TX) announced the launch of Summit, the first fiber optic sensing (FOS) platform to provide fully distributed sensing with the ability to combine multiple measurement technologies into a single platform. FOS technologies collect and analyze material and structural data based on changes in the way light moves down a fiber optic cable. FOS technologies extract environmental parameters such as strain, loads, temperature gradients, as well as deflection and 3D shape sensing when light is passed through a network of hair-thin fibers. By measuring the changes in how light reflects back given various changes in these parameters, FOS technology can provide real-time monitoring of applications, helping to ensure the integrity, efficiency, and long-term durability of equipment.
