Cryogenic Instrumentation & Safety Monitoring

Monitoring structures operating under cryogenic temperatures requires special attention given to the quality and longevity of any of the components of the monitoring system. SMARTEC's Optical Sensors are qualified to operate under cryogenic temperatures.

The primary function of cryogenic applications monitoring is to enable the timely detection of any condition or behavior that could deteriorate structures and provide an early warning to ensure the safety of the environment.
Optical sensors from SMARTEC have been qualified to operate under cryogenic temperatures. The intrinsic properties of optic sensors allows for compact sensing and cabling, a great variety in the measurable parameters, insensitivity to EMI (Electro-Magnetic Interferences), electrically passive sensors and cable, intrinsically safe.
Sensors operating under cryogenic temperatures operate as contact and non-contact measurements.
These sensors operate reliably in demanding environments, including magnetic field, radiation and vacuum.

We are a leading expert in optical sensing, particularly fiber optic sensing to monitor cryogenic applications. We offer a wide variety of sensors using leading edge technology and we can assist you in identifying the best products for your project and budget.
