Power-Over-Fiber for Low Power, Remote Sensor Systems

Download Whitepaper
Low power, low cost sensors are commonly available for system monitoring, including temperature, pressure, humidity, proximity, and voltage. However, in certain applications — such as high voltage areas of industrial and manufacturing plants, mining sites, energy generation facilities, utility substations, and even sensitive medical equipment — simply connecting the wires needed to implement the remote sensing and monitoring creates the potential for problematic ground loops, stray voltage, and signal disruption simply due to that electrical pathway
