All-optical fully passive sensors

The fiber sensors we provide are all-optical and fully passive; no electrical components are involved. The main material used in the sensors is glass, enriched with silicon or adhesives. Therefore the sensors can be applied in very harsh environments such as in extreme high or low temperatures, liquid environments or in the presence of strong electrical and/or magnetic fields.

Main characteristics

− All-optical fiber based sensor
Inherent immunity to all electromagnetic effects (EMI, RFI, sparks, etc.), liquids and extreme temperatures.

− High multiplexing capability
Connection of a large number of sensors to a single optical fiber, reducing network and installation complexity.

− Remote sensing
Large distances between sensors and interrogator (up to kilometers).
