Our fibre-optic systems have been delivering added value through highly reliable fire detection and lead the way in monitoring temperature and detecting incipient fires within a range of multidiscipline environments with over 1000 devices installed and over one million days of operation.
The fibre-optic technology utilised within Patol Fibresense DTS systems combines the benefits of detection speed, reliability and versatility in one proven solution. The unique feature of fibre-optic DTS technology is that it can accurately locate hot spots to within a distance of 1m with a temperature accuracy of within ±1°C. It therefore combines the benefits of analogue LHD rate of temperature rise with digital LHD location accuracy.
The Fibresense DTS Control Unit connects to Fibresense DTS Cable and determines temperature and distance data at thousands of points along the cable which can be up to 10km in length – another benefit of Fibresense DTS. In addition, the system is able to monitor the movement of the hot spot, or multiple hot spots, in terms of position and temperature in real-time.
