Extremely accurate, reliable and continuous. We can monitor complex structures 24/7 in real time.
These advanced systems lead the guidelines for the predictive maintenance and supervision of the key structures (buildings, dams, historical heritage, etc.) and the Infrastructural Net of a country.
FSI optical fiber sensors are non-invasive and can be easily mounted on new and pre-existing structural elements.
SECTA’s FSI monitoring systems aim to overcome the limits and the practical difficulties met by other systems (optical fibers and non), helping the Infrastructures Managers improve performance and safety.
The data are reliable, secure and easily accessible by the clients, with early warning alarms sent once the safety conditions are exceeded.
FSI optical fiber systems are the new frontier of Structural Monitoring of bridges and viaducts, overcoming the limits of the approximation resulting from discrete measurement systems.
SECTA MONITORING has conceived the FSI TM system for the SHM of the elements of a tunnel, designed to investigate the evolution of the primary shortcrete ribs resulting in a transfer of loads to the tunnel lining sections.
W.I.M. - Weight in Motion
The results of a highly precise, reliable and accurate Weight in Motion system are one the most useful information to preserve the existing infrastructural net
Electric Mobility. Battery monitoring systems with shape, strain and temperature sensors.
Precise temperature mapping of electric vehicles battery packs.
Monitoring of battery case deformation in Strain or Shape mode.
Leakage from the floor of corroded storage tanks is a safety, environmental and economic hazard.
Shape imperfections can introduce friction between the floating cover and the tank, generating sparks. A tank failure and the consequent potential explosion/ fire at adjacent infrastructures is unacceptable.
Shape sensing and vibration monitoring with FSI systems on storage tanks can detect shape imperfections, leakage and cracks.
Fiber optics are used in Aerospace and Space Economy industries mainly for:
Health monitoring of external environment
Health monitoring of engines
Health monitoring for airframes
FSI fibers can be used to monitors 3D deformations of airplane wings and helicopter blades.
Due to the high sampling frequency (1 MHz) applied to each optical sensor, it is possible to define alert thresholds in case of blade delamination and unusual vibrations caused by plastic strain or material loss due to collisions with objects during the flight.
FSI systems allow wind turbines farms manager to constantly keep control of the wind turbines operating conditions both in land and off-shore, allowing:
