$DPLS As most safety related legislature is written in blood it's only a matter of time before these smart principles are a requirement, and even before - a big insurance cost reduction. For example, the Surfside condominium collapse in Miami could've been detected well in advance and averted with these systems. Several units/systems will be grandfathered for a while but new construction is where we'll see the immediate need as well as results. Fiber also has other advantages. Take a ship for example, just the weight saved by using fiber vs copper is significant. Fiber control networks are faster, lighter, more compact, and not prone to electro-magnetic interference given off by power cables and large motors. Load calculations will be slightly adjusted and when used in arc-flash study calculations, the detection time is significantly reduced which can save both lives and equipment. #GSD
