A distributed temperature sensor can measure the temperature along fiber-optic cables up to 31 miles (50 km) long. Model DTSX 3000 is designed for plant and infrastructure maintenance applications that necessitate the monitoring of temperature over long distances or across wide areas. Specific applications include the detection of gas and liquid leaks in tanks and other large production facilities and the monitoring of conductor temperatures in power lines. The temperature readings can be displayed on a computer monitor, allowing maintenance personnel to quickly spot and respond to any problems.
