Optical Fiber Detection Sensors


The intrinsic properties of the optical fibers, whether made ​​of glass (silica) or plastic (PMMA), make them naturally sensitive over their entire length. Thus, it is very easy to design detection sensors continuously distributed or localized. Exploiting these principles enables the creation of detection systems for many applications, with a very advantageous cost vs. quality rapport.


Types of Optical Fiber Detection Sensors


Perimeter Detection for sensitive sites (buried sensors, mesh/welded instrumented mesh, instrumented concertina barbed wire, instrumented walls…)


Presence detection (sensitive low thickness carpets, curved or straight sensitive edges, anti-pinch systems)


Leak detection by rapid temperature change (dikes, petrochemical tanks, …)


Frost Detection

Detection of Level
