Fluves offers continuous monitoring systems over long distances. We measure strain, pressure and temperature in cables every meter over many kilometers. From pressure and temperature we monitor continuously processes such as heating or burial depth of power cables or leakage in pipelines. Fluves uses different fiber optic technologies, such as Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) and Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG).
We monitor in 2015 and 2016 continuously the sedimentation height on top of a fiber optic cable for the Flemish Government. We also developed a load cell based on FBG technology that can monitor pressure and impact with high accuracy on different places and water depths.
