“all optical – absolutely no electronics at the measurement point”
The PHOVIS™ Advanced Optical Sensor is a highly accurate, optical-based sensor solution for monitoring vibration, acceleration, vector and displacement. Based on Micatu’s patented technology, PHOVIS™ is a revolutionary and a completely optical approach to physical measurement.
Micatu can provide OEM solutions of the PHOVIS™ Advance Monitoring System for applications including aerospace, wind, generation and virtually any standalone sensing or condition monitoring application. PHOVIS™ can support both simplistic and complex communication protocols with the ability for distributed analytics, continuous monitoring and adjustable dynamics.
The GridProcessor™ is the brain of the GridView™ Advanced Monitoring System. The GridProcessor™ samples the return light from the GridView MV Sensor™ and/or PHOVIS™ sensor to determine voltage, current or vibration measurements. The GridProcessor™ measures at a sample rate of 15 kHz and then translates these measurements into more than 225 digital values. This information is converted digitally through DNP3.0 or Modbus and transmits digital information through an Ethernet connected radio into a Utility’s DA network for SCADA or other communication protocols.
