OMNISENS was created in 1999 as a spin-off company of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL ). Omnisens produces instrumentation and systems based on optical metrology and photonics.
Using fiber optic-based sensing Omnisens offers continuous, reliable monitoring for energy industry assets. A range of solutions is available for early detection and location of events which may threaten the integrity of the asset. These techniques provide condition monitoring, asset optimization and intrusion detection, based on small changes in temperature, strain and vibration. Monitoring techniques include Brillouin-based Distributed Temperature and Strain Sensing (DTSS), which Omnisens pioneered, Raman Distributed Temperature Sensing(DTS), Distributed Acoustic/Vibration Sensing (DAS/DVS) and Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG).
Based in Switzerland Omnisens operates throughout the world, either directly or through specialized solution providers, via dedicated application, commissioning and customer service teams. A leader in long-distance fiber optic sensing, Omnisens has pioneered effective real-time asset integrity monitoring solutions for critical oil and gas, power and civil engineering infrastructures.
