Application Area Industry and Substation
High capacity and secure industrial communication, enable greater efficiency for many different industries. From single-sensor connection to high-quality data transfer and transmission productions – comprehensive industrial communications solutions enable effective integration of all business areas into a coherent system.
Substation Automation Intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) being implemented in substations today contain valuable information, both operational and non-operational, needed by many user groups within a utility. An IED is any device that incorporates one or more processors with the capability to receive or send data/control from or to an external source (e.g., electronic multifunction meters, digital relays, controllers). Fibersystem Fiber Optical communication is used in order to accommodate the necessary galvanic seperation, security and distance of between IEDs and substations.
Manufacturing and process automation Process automation or automation system (PAS) and manufacturing execution system (MES) are used to automatically control a process such as chemical, oil refineries, paper and pulp factories. The network interconnect sensors, controllers, operator terminals and actuators. Often the challenging manufacturing environment with strong electromagnetic interference (EMI) and long distances demand Fiber Optical communication.
Rail traffic control Railway traffic control requires dedicated point-to-point and point-to-multipoint circuits for communication over larger number of signal points spread along the track. A typical control section spreads over 200 kms with 30 to 40 signal points. Development in Fiber Optical technology has changed the scenario and is used increasingly in railway telecommunication networks to offer secure transfer of signals over long distances.
Medical Communication Advancements in medical technology have allowed physicians to better diagnose and treat their patients since the beginning of the professional practice of medicine. Thanks to the continuous development of technology in the medical field, countless lives have been saved and the overall quality of life continues to improve over time. It’s clear that IT is giving the healthcare industry a much-needed upgrade, from remote surgery to mobile apps that help patients live healthier lives. Doctors are able to collaborate with other physicians and experts in new ways and use computers to analyze patient and medical data, allowing them to provide better and more efficient treatment for their patients. With more accessibility of IT comes challenges of IT-security and integrity for the medical communication systems and patient data. Fiber Optical technology is used extensively in the medical communication systems to ensure that the integrity of communication is kept in the sensitive hospitals environment.
