Photonics sensing solution - Industrial automation for predictive maintenance and anomaly detection in extreme environments

The solution enables advanced predictive maintenance, asset monitoring and anomaly detection, specifically in extreme environments. It combines a unique proprietary Photonics Sensors and Machine Learning. A number of environmental parameters can be monitored: vibration, acoustic, pressure, electrical field and temperature. The sensors advantages include intrinsic safety in the harshest environments (explosive, high voltage, high EM field, high pressure, high/low temperature), superior sensitivity and small footprint (few mm). Those sensors combined with purpose-built Machine Learning algorithms provide actionable data, solving customer use cases.

Key features

  • 2000 sensors are being manufactured at the same time, with the same energy that one would normally require
  • Virtually with no end-of-life
  • The sensor head has no power consumption
  • Enables the saving of several % of scrap material
  • 100's millions of grain saved per year
  • Less maintenance, means less maintenance-based on-site travels


  • ROI in less than 3 months
  • Saving of BCHF per year for end customer in several applications
