Fiber Sensing Data Ecosystem
Integrated Acquisition and Analysis Suite
Supporting researchers, new users, dreamers and investigators – our Fiber Sensing Data Ecosystem is a collection of tools designed to support lightweight data investigations through to robust but simple permanent monitoring. Aimed at users who are primarily interested in raw data or lightweight and flexible data products, the ecosystem provides a wealth of features to help you get a handle on the content and meaning of your recorded data.
Simplified Data Acquisition and Monitoring
Our simplest tool for rapid setup of an interrogator with the purpose of acquiring both short term and long-term data via static and rolling recorders. Fully integrated with a data streaming API for algorithm hosting and testing as well as to our cloud based portal for health monitoring.
Light Acquisition is a lightweight and field proven reliable method of recording continuous data from interrogators without packet loss at up to 400 MB/s – field proven. The core of Light Acquisition is built into to all of our other products (downhole monitoring and OS6 Visualisation) and thus is heavily tested and field proven.
Light Acquisition is completely user agnostic and makes no assumptions on data use. The prime goal is to quickly allow a recording system to be setup, tuned to a fiber of choice for maximum performance and then set recording – in timed, manual or rolling modes.
Producing industry standard, unwrapped H5 data, it is proven to be capable of lossless performance at our maximum IU rates of 400 MB/s. As well as recording tools, Light Acquisition also features online analysis tools via waterfall display and channel analysis providing spectrogram, timeseries and FFT functionality.
Feedback on performance is provided to the user as well as health check items from the IU such as continuous temperature monitoring and logging. A complete error and performance logging system is integrated meaning that troubles can be rapidly diagnosed.
In late 2021 an IU assurance feed is being integrated which also logs in real time a variety of metrics associated with the health of the complete sensing system and alerting the user to issues.
