Fiber Optic Sensing Technologies Explained
Distributed Temperature Sensing
Distributed temperature sensing systems or DTS systems are fiber optic based instruments which measure temperature along the length of the fiber optic cable, essentially turning the entire length of cable into a sensor.
Distributed Acoustic Sensing
Distributed acoustic sensing systems or DAS systems are similar to DTS systems, however, these fiber optic optoelectronic instruments measure acoustic interactions along the length of a fiber optic sensing cable.
