Our Product: ONYX™

ONYX™, the flagship platform from Sintela, now delivers customisable, all-in one, simple and cost effective solutions for distributed fibre optic sensing needs.

A step change

Representing the next step in the evolution of Distributed Fibre Sensing, ONYX™ converts existing telecommunications fibre optic cable into a rich vibration, detection and ranging system.

By harnessing the power of quantitative data, it accurately classifies and geolocates all moving objects and potential threats within 6 metres, both in real time and historically.

Developed by Sintela’s global experts in Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), ONYX™ significantly improves performance and provides a future-proof solution that can stand alone, integrate or be embedded into existing telecommunication and fibre systems.

Extracting more value from quantitative data

Building on over 20 years of experience in software development, our new generation ONYX™ software has been designed to extract maximum value from your data, giving you unrivalled insight and power to deliver transformational change to infrastructure and businesses, no matter what the industry.

Monitoring data in real-time, any time

The software is served from each ONYX™ Sensing Unit connected to Local or Wide Area Networks. This provides full remote access to all the functions including engineering setup, instrument diagnostics, data visualisation, data processing and alert notification.

Key features

  • Web-based User Interface served directly from each ONYX™ Sensing Unit
  • Remote access available from anywhere in the world using a secure VPN login
  • GIS window with overlay of fibre route and alert data
  • Time verses distance ‘waterfall’ plots available for real-time and historical data
