The Micatu Solution

Condition Monitoring

The Gridview Advanced Monitoring System™
is a purely optical, highly configurable sensor
platform for CMS applications.

The Gridview Advanced Monitoring System™ supports multiple data protocols for seamless integration into CMS systems


Condition Monitoring Systems (CMS) are widely recognized and proven to reduce operating costs, increase profitability and ensure the reliability of complex mechanical systems. This is particularly true in the aerospace, defense, rotating and power generation sectors that have deployed CMS for several decades in mission critical applications.

Micatu has developed a true "next generation sensor platform" for CMS applications that is highly configurable and customizable. The CMS sensor platform consists of vibration, voltage or current measurement sensors which allows for any combination of sensors types resulting in a completely plug and play system.

Advanced Monitoring System

The Micatu GridView™ Advanced Monitoring Sensor is a highly accurate, optical-based sensor solution for monitoring vibration, acceleration, vector and MV voltage & current. Based on Micatu’s patented technology, The GridView™ Advanced Monitoring Sensor is a revolutionary and a completely optical approach to measurement. Micatu’s PHOVIS™ Advanced Monitoring System enables:

  • High Accuracy & Precision
  • Supports extremely harsh environments
  • Wide operational temperature range
  • Connected vis fiber optical cables to signal processing unit
  • Long operational life

The plug & play configurable m410B Optical Signal Processor allows for multiple sensors to be sampled at a rate of 15kHz into more than 225 digital values and presents this information digitally through an DNP3.0 or MODBUS communication protocols. The m410B Optical Signal Processor also supports:

  • Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems (SCADA)
  • Distribution Management Systems (DMS)
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  • Managed Maintenance Systems (MMS)
  • Capacitor Control Systems (CCM)

The m410B Optical Signal Processor also provides a digital to analog conversion to provide a low energy analog output or an optional high-energy analog output for local control.
