5 Ways Fiber Optic Sensing Is Better for Acquiring Critical Data
Sensor measurements are critical in every discipline in nearly every industry — from early research through product design and verification, manufacturing and production on through operations, maintenance and support.
Good sensor data is the key to building better products faster and operating and maintaining them more efficiently.
So the need for good, relevant and comprehensive data is more important than ever. Fortunately, there's a technology that can successfully solveyour most critical measurement challenges: fiber optic sensing.
While older, traditional sensors and gauges involve a single sensing point and limit the amount of data you can collect, distributed fiber optic sensing is especially valuable, where thousands of sensors can coexist on a single optical fiber, exponentially increasing the amount of information available to you with just one fiber the width of a human hair.
