Specialty optical fiber-sensing cable (SOFSC)
We are the technology leader in glass fiber sensing technology for temperature, pressure and strain measurement. With hydrogen-insensitive fiber that can withstand temperatures from -150°C to +300°C, our fiber is used from arctic to deep subsea areas.
Many environments that could most benefit from fiber sensing -- such as deep inside an offshore oil well, an icy, salt covered bridge, the trans-Siberian pipeline or buried in the sand at a desert border crossing -- are deadly to optical fiber.
Draka Specialty Optical Fiber-Sensing Cable can be customer designed to survive in almost any application environment.
We have solutions ideal for high temperature, downhole, aerial, surface or direct burial installations.
