SensorTran and Micron Optics Sensing Solution

July 2009 Vol. 236 No. 7

SensorTran Inc. has announced an agreement with Micron Optics, Inc. to offer the world’s first integrated, hybrid fiber-optic sensing solution for pipelines.

The system offers both Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) capabilities and Fiber-Bragg Grating (FBG) point-sensing capabilities which measure pressure, strain and vibration. The fully integrated sensing solution features a single software interface for configuring both sensors and managing data collection, data synchronization and communications.

Both companies will offer the combined unit in their respective markets. According to the companies, the fiber-optic sensing field has been changed by their decision to deliver temperature and strain capabilities together.,
