Summit - Ultrafine Fiber Optic Sensing

Summit Fiber Optic Sensing System: Description

Summit  fiber optic sensing system delivers the most reliable measurements for structural testing, design optimization, structural health monitoring, thermal mapping and 2D shape sensing.

By supporting 8,000+ sensors on multiple optical fiber cables simultaneously, Summit provides fully distributed sensing capabilities for applications that require both high density and precision. Summit empowers engineers across industries to gather the data they need, not just the data they can get.

Summit is ready to integrate with custom applications and other equipment with Sensuron’s Network API. All communication is accomplished over Ethernet using TCP/IP. The Networking API enables customers and other vendors to integrate custom applications and hardware to Summit. This allows customers to develop their own software in their language of choice, to connect, control, and receive data from Summit.

Current support and applications include:

The lead length is fully adjustable so users can place the sensors exactly where they need to be.


Replace multiple sensing technologies in a single platform.

Reduces Risk

Gain confidence in your testing data and model validation. Summit’s fully distributed sensing provides the entire picture of what’s going on rather than a handful of data points.


We have yet to be approached by a competitor or customer that used a similar instrument delivering better performance
