WE ENGINEER, PRODUCE AND IMPLEMENT CUSTOMIZED COMPOSITES REINFORCED FIBER BRAGG GRATINGS SENSING STRIPS.

Our robust STRIPS technology and our unique installation methodology allow cost-effective implementation of fiber optic sensing technologies for monitoring real-time loads on almost any existing beams or piles structures.

We deliver online load monitoring data, to validate design parameters or to monitor the structural integrity or operational condition of infrastructures.

Our technology enables owners and operators to get more out of their asset, increasing capacity, efficiency, safety and to plan maintenance actions in a cost-effective manner.

Com&Sens helps you to move towards performance-based design and shift from time-based to condition-based maintenance.

What Adding value by sensing means to you :

  • Increase operations uptime
  • Increase construction productivity
  • Reduce maintenance cost & downtime
  • Improve HSE by detecting Early Safety Risks
  • Automate early alerts of critical faults
  • Easier root cause analysis
  • Reduce Mean Time To Repair Extended life-time
  • Reduce TCO
  • Shift to predictive maintenance

ADVANTAGES OF OPTICAL SENSING

More on Fiber Bragg Gratings
  • Capture system-wide stress and strain (multiplexing capability)
  • Simultaneous read-out of 20/40 sensors per line to 1/16 channels systems
  • Absolute sensor properties (no re-calibration needed)
  • Reduction of cabling, hence installation times
  • Resistance to corrosion or chemicals
  • Immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI)
