QPS Photronics' is a company based in Quebec, Canada which has over 15 years experience with fiber-optic vibration sensors. Through the use of Fiber-Bragg-Grating sensors we are capable of identifying problems in areas with high voltages and high ESD problems where conventional sensors will not function.
QPS Photronics mission is to improve and ensure the Safety, Efficiency and Reliability of our customers in the energy and power industries. We offer vibration monitoring solutions that work well in hostile environments using novel fiber optics. Our sensors are ideal for use in high voltage motors, power generators or inside oil filled power transformers.
The secret to robust systems is appropriate monitoring allowing preventative service before catastrophic failures happen.
Our sensors are ideal for OEM’s of Generators, Motors and Transformers where unplanned stoppages and warranty repairs can be expensive. Our Motor Guard serves large power users in oil and gas refineries and Petrochemical plants. Our distributed vibration sensor using long Gauge Technology helps pump manufacturers detect cavitation problems.
Improve and Ensure Safety, Efficiency and Reliability for our customers.
