Since 2003, Micronor Inc. has been a pioneer of innovative Fiber Optic Kinetic Sensors for both industrial and medical applications. Products include Fiber Optic Position Sensors, Rotary Encoders, Linear Encoders, Signaling, E-Stop, Microswitch, Accelerometer, and Temperature Sensors. These sensors are designed for challenging applications where immunity to EMI, RFI, microwaves, high voltage, magnetic fields, radiation and/or explosive atmospheres is required, as well as MRI compatibility or long distance operation. Micronor maintains regional sales, service, engineering, and manufacturing facilities in both California, USA and Switzerland.
Micronor product applications in:
- industrial automation and process control
- bakeries and cheese making
- steel mills and rolling plants
- petrochemical plants, refineries and oil rigs
- utilities, dams, hydroelectric and nuclear power plants
- mines, cranes and bridges
- military - all manner of land, sea and air applications
Why Fiber Optic Sensing?
Fiber optic sensing offers measurement solutions where electrical and electronic circuits simply cannot function. Fiber optic sensors work entirely based on photons, which in common terms is known as light. From a physics point of view, photons do not have mass, photons do not interfere with electrons and photons only interfere with other photons under specific conditions. Therefore, photonic behavior is predictable and controllable according to basic physical laws, even within high electromagnetic fields, high magnetic fields, high radiation fields, and extreme temperature environments.
