LumaSense Technologies Acquire Opsens’ technology for Power Grid Reliability

LumaSense Technologies, a leading supplier of temperature and gas sensing equipments, declared that it has secured the Opsens’ PowerSens system fiber optic sensing technology, for use in the energy companies for the detection of transformer points and to execute intense voltage equipment temperature sensing.

The contract with Opsens delivers finely structured fiber optics to LumaSense for enhancing the power grid security including the distribution, transmission and generation assets.

Vivek Joshi, chief executive officer, LumaSense Technologies said that the preference for the electrical and transformer asset’s security is a mounting concern due to elevated energy requirements. He added that the advancements in the technology for the improvement of transformers enable the production of a wide variety of low cost products suitable to all requirements and resources.

The PowerSens fiber optic sensing technology employs gallium arsenide (GaAs) sensors to monitor temperature and will shape the LumaSense's fiber optics globally. The LumaSense fiber optics listing consists of the LumaSmart systems and the ThermAsset2 which functions on the technology of Fluoroptic phosphor. The Fluoroptic system ensures high security while monitoring temperatures in huge transformers whereas GaAs sensors are used for non-expensive, short projects.

Pierre Carrier, the president and CEO, Opsens, said that the PowerSens clients will be having access to LumaSense’s temperature monitoring technology and its application engineers and Opsens will aim to extend its service to the field of fiber optics to meet their customers’ satisfaction.

The LumaSense's fiber optic technology (FOT) for temperature monitoring is maintained as a benchmark in the electrical industry and uses rugged probes for FOT measurements in the meandering points of the transformer. As against the traditional methods that has discrepancies in deducing hotspots by trying to imitate the temperature as opposed to directly measuring it
