Make Infrastructure Make Sense
nuron fibre sensing technology is a step-change for sewer monitoring, it's not 'spot' but 'continuous' in-pipe sewer monitoring with in-built networking capabilities to transform wastewater infrastructure and build smart cities of the future.
nuron fibre sensing technology gives sewer and wastewater operators the ability to not only monitor ‘down manhole’ spot flow, but continuous ‘in pipe’ condition. Through continuous in-pipe monitoring, real-time control is possible. By measuring multiple parameters at the same time, every 5m along a sewer network, it enables potential incidents to be accurately diagnosed, alerted, rapidly localised and averted.
nuron fibre sensing technology is the only patented dual-purpose product on the market. The fibre containment system is a unique design sensitive enough to sense environmental changes, yet robust enough to withstand harsh environments. It also provides networking capacity for the integration of existing sensors, telemetry and communications at high-speed over fibre broadband.
How It Works
Spot Sensors vs. nuron Continual In-Pipe Sensing
|Power Supply||Above ground||In sewer|
|Communications||Secure networking via fibre||Relies on wireless coverage|
|Reach||Many km||Single location|
|Coverage||Contiguous, man-entry and non-man-entry||Access points only|
|Life||Maintenance free for 20+ years||5-7 year life|
|Data Access||Anywhere along the cable||Pre-defined locations|
|Measurements||Depth; velocity; flow rate; temperature; structural integrity||Different sensors usually required for different variables, but no structural monitoring|
