Title: HIGH SENSITIVITY FIBER OPTIC BASED DETECTION
Abstract:
An integrated communication and smoke detection system includes a fiber harness having at least one fiber optic cable for transmitting light, the at least one fiber optic cable defining a node arranged to measure one or more conditions at a predetermined area. A light source is operably connected to the fiber harness to transmit light along the at least one fiber optic cable to the node. A control system operably coupled to the fiber harness such that scattered light associated with the node is transmitted to the control system, wherein the control system analyzes the scattered light to determine at least one of a presence and magnitude of the one or more conditions at the node. The control system is configured to allow multiple inputs and outputs for communication of information through the fiber harness and node using modulated light.
