Temperature Sensing
The Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) system uses optical fibers as continuous sensors to provide real time, multi-point temperature data. Thermal variations can help predict equipment failure before it becomes catastrophic, fire at an early phase when it can be contained easily, leakage in both piping systems and LNG storage facilities as well as current flow through power cables.

Alerts Location of Temperature Variations

The DTS system consists of a laser source and sensing hardware located in a control room and fully non-electric fiber optic cables in the areas to be monitored. This system can connect to a PC to display continuous temperature data, connect to I/O equipment for auditory/visual alarming, or interface with existing control systems thorugh a standard TCP/IP protocol.  Alarms for maximum/minimum temperatures, hot spots, and rates of temperature change can be programmed.  In addition, breaks are the fiber is detected and reported.

RSL Fiber Systems will identify the best DTS system for the application, provide the related hardware, assist with the integration into existing control systems, and insure the proper installation and commissioning.
