Advantages of the FiberStrike® system for bridge structural health monitoring:

  • All FiberStrike® sensors are passive, emit no signals and require no electrical power
  • Sensors are immune to electrical interference and degradation due to harsh environments
  • Hundreds of discrete sensors may be interrogated over one fiber bundle
  • Multiple sensor types may be mixed and matched on one fiber
  • Nonconductive interconnecting optical fibers may carry data as well as sensor information
  • Multiple optical fibers are easily deployed for redundancy
  • Sensors may be 25+ kilometers from monitoring equipment, no booster amplifiers required

FiberStrike® sensing systems have been installed and proven effective on multiple bridges, both domestically and internationally. Cleveland Electric Laboratories has effective solutions to help meet your bridge structural health monitoring requirements, and we invite your inquiries.

IntelliOptics™ Software

  • Graphic user interface (GUI) is customized for every bridge
  • GUI is intuitive and designed to be easily used by anyone without requiring detailed training
  • Software monitors all installed sensors, gathers data, and provides alerts and analysis when any sensor parameters approach or exceed predefined limits
  • IntelliOptics software communicates with multiple sensing systems, displays status and provides information via one centralized user program that can be accessed remotely
