Distributed Sensing DTS and DTSS Products

The flexibility and speed of measurements offered by distributed sensing systems provide great potential in a wide range of applications. For example, the cable installed in MRT/expressway tunnel or power cable duct can serve as a very effective fire detection system capable of detecting the location of a fire very precisely. Because temperature changes as small as 0.01°C can be detected, distributed sensing systems can highlight an overheating problem before it becomes a fire.
