fibre optic sensor
Hyperion has developed a ground breaking sensing solution for large, high voltage electrical assets like Transformers. The solutions is an optical fiber the size of a human hair, in lengths of up to thousands of feet, is embedded throughout a device, deep inside its core. Then laser pulses are fired down the fiber, and the reflected frequency of the laser light is analysed to produce information about the health and status of the equipment. This allows utilities, for the first time, to detect what is going on everywhere deep inside the device, in real time.
