Optimise Your Response to Cable Infrastructure Threats

Our modern world depends on the power of cabling networks – and so does your business. The risk of damage, wear and tear or break down events can threaten every aspect of modern infrastructure, from essential power supplies to telecoms  and fibre optic connectivity. So, an effective cable monitoring solution is a vital component of your business risk strategy.

Both onshore and offshore cables can be extremely difficult to reach and costly to repair. Early and accurate detection of events allows you to quickly deliver a targeted response. LiveDETECT II®’s cutting-edge fibre optic sensing technology does exactly that. It works round the clock to detect, analyse, and alert you to only genuine threats and the nature of the threat. Its green/amber/red warning system keeps you fully informed as to how critical the threat to your cable is. You can therefore prioritise your resources and ensure an efficient, cost-effective approach to maintaining cable integrity and maintenance.

The Benefits of LiveDETECT® Automated Cable Monitoring

LiveDETECT II®’s fully modular system is unique to Fotech and designed with your cable infrastructure in mind. It allows for swift installation, tailored integration with your own networks and systems, and easy expansion of DAS cable monitoring as your network grows.

Our Distributed Acoustic Sensing specialists work with you to customise the monitoring and sensing modules to meet your specific challenges. Each LiveDETECT II® system is calibrated to the full length of your cable network - interpreting disturbances within minutes and metres, adapting to low-risk and high-risk zones, and raising accurate and timely alarms, even in extreme temperatures and conditions.

Working 24/7 to listen, analyse and evolve its understanding of cable disturbances, Fotech’s LiveDETECT II® distributed acoustic sensing and AI technology is a fast and reliable way to protect your cable infrastructure.

Cable Monitoring Solutions to Protect Your Business and Customers

Given the safety, connectivity, cost, and time implications of a damaged cable network, accuracy is key when it comes to cable integrity monitoring.

Fotech has field tested in both onshore and offshore live environments, with results proving LiveDETECT®’s ability to pinpoint signs of cable damage or breakdown to within just metres, even in deep subsea environments.

What’s more,  that Helios DAS® detection greatly reduces the need for multiple flashover tests on cables, significantly reducing the risk of secondary damage and increased cost and manpower.

Ultimately, LiveDETECT® with Helios DAS® saved these customers millions of pounds in lost productivity, repairs, and downtime. Not to mention ensuring no loss of service to customers and safeguarding of engineering teams by optimising repair time in high-risk environments.
