Paper Abstract

The optical fiber sensor network and its applications are described in this paper. This sensor network system includes two parts: data acquisition part and data transportation part. The data acquisition part is used for measuring the parameters of gasoline tanks level, temperature, flowrate, pressure, and interface between gasoline and water. The data transportation part is a multi-parameters and multi-points fiber sensor network. The specifications of the system are given in this paper. The advantages of the sensor heads are digital type, that is the output signals are digital. By this way the system has high stability for long distance propagation and long term use. This sensor network system has continually worked in laboratory for one year and now is installed in the field of South China for field test about one year. The constructs and experiment results of this system in the field are described in detail.
