Our new integrators join a team of some of the most capable instrumentation companies in the world, and their customers will ultimately be the benefactors of both their depth of experience and the many advantages of FBG based sensor solutions
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 30, 2012
Micron Optics, Inc. announces a significant global expansion of the company’s established system integrators of fiber Bragg grating (FBG) based optical sensors and sensing interrogators. This added talent in Asia, Europe, and the Americas provides customers with additional opportunities to use fiber optic sensors’ inherent immunity to EMI, multiplexing capability, and small physical size in challenging civil, industrial, power, aerospace, and transportation applications. The combination of Micron Optics’ optical sensing products with the expertise of its system integrators creates a unique and unparalleled opportunity to make impossible measurements become possible.
The explosive growth of the optical sensing market in Asia is now further supported by CMIWS, a system integrator of Micron Optics’ products in Japan. Fiber optic sensing technology has been used within the country for over a decade, and this new sales channel will continue its strong growth within marketplace.
Two new companies join the strong alliance of European system integrators. Marmota Engineering AG, in Switzerland, focuses on fiber optic sensing solutions for geotechnical applications offering installation, monitoring, and consulting services. Representing Scandinavia, Dimense Oy develops, manufactures, and sells structural health monitoring instruments and provides measurement services for bridges, roofs, tunnels, dams, and embankments. These two companies give the continent even more opportunities to deploy the innovative technology in proven applications for optical sensing.
This growing trend of Micron Optics system integrators throughout the world is most noticeable in the Americas with the addition of four new system integrators. Impulso Economico Digital Mexicano SA de CV, a Mexican engineering company specializing in structural health monitoring, enjoys having over 25 years of experience in the construction sector. It also has branch offices in Brazil and Chile. Based in Costa Rica, Capris S.A. is the country’s largest supplier of measuring instrumentation serving the medical, civil, automotive, semiconductor, and industrial sectors throughout Central America. The company also provides full engineering and integration services. Imacu Ingenieria & Servicios, an engineering and construction services company based in Santiago, Chile, specializes in remote and structural health monitoring projects in the mining, civil infrastructure, and geothermal sectors. Geosinergia Ltda., a geotechnical engineering and services company, addresses the geomechanic monitoring needs of the mining, civil, and hydraulic areas in Chile and throughout South America.
Most importantly, these system integrators are supported by the strong technical support team and talented engineers at Micron Optics. “It’s the system integrators who’ve inspired development of important new sensor designs, instrument capabilities, and software features. Our new integrators join a team of some of the most capable instrumentation companies in the world, and their customers will ultimately be the benefactors of both their depth of experience and the many advantages of FBG based sensor solutions,” states Tom Graver, VP of Optical Sensing for Micron Optics.
