Keywords: Temperature Measurement

Photon Control pressure sensors are based on the light interference phenomena and fiber optics technology. It is a very robust probe that can provide an accurate measurement in a RF environment and are optimized for easy OEM integration. Photon Controls pressure sensors are an ideal solution for heavy oil wells implementing Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) for oil recovery. Our sensors provide an absolute pressure measurement reading that is robust and reliable while having a very competitive price. Having this reliability and high accuracy allows for a safer work site for oil recovery. Potential applications:

  • * RF and microwave processing
  • * RF wood drying
  • * RF grain drying
  • * composite and resin curing polymerization
  • * composite and lightweight structure test under RF curing
  • * remediation or bioremediation
  • * Temperature measurement or monitoring under high voltage and EMI/RFI environments
  • * Temperature measurement in the automotive industry
  • * Exhaust gas temperature from internal engine
  • * Nuclear industry
  • * Cryogenic applications
  • * Superconducting magnet
  • * Fuel cell applications

These two products provide accurate and reliable temperature measurement of critical components that can assist in maximizing the life expectancy and avoiding catastrophic failure to Transformers, Generators, Switchgears, and High Voltage Connectors to name a few. Photon Control believes in a partnership approach to tailor their solutions and manufacturing processes to match the requirements of the end use application.



It includes an integrated cooling fan which allows for a higher light output than competitor models while at the same time extends the life of the bulb, and makes the unit easy and safe to work with. The development and evolution of compact spectrometers over the last 10 years has moved this important tool from the lab bench to many new scientific and industrial applications.


Sensors Positioning - Photon Control Inc

Photon Control positioning sensors are used in the semi-conductor industry to monitor the movement of silicon wafers as they are passed by robotic arms. The use of our sensors has give the semi-conductor industry the ability to collect data on the amount of movement that occurs during manufacturing. Other non-contact sensors are unable to operate in this environment making it impossible to monitor the movement of the wafers.


Sensors Displacement - Photon Control Inc

Photon Control displacement sensors are ideally suited for high RF, microwave and EMI environments where traditional displacement sensors do not perform. Photon Control R&D is capable to develop the custom optical displacement for different industries and application in order to meet customer requirements. Photon produced two types of sensors, contact and non-contact.


Sensors Temperature - Photon Control Inc

Unlike unwieldy competitor products, that barely qualify as a handheld device and require the user to stock bulky spare batteries, the PalmSENSE fiber optic temperature sensor was designed from the ground up as a mobile device. Photon Control seized fluorescent temperature sensing technology and advanced it to a whole new level with its Fluotemp temperature probe product line.
