  • Factory New
Brand: Protectowire Part #: 126963 Categories: , Manufacturer Part #: PTS-8206 Tag:


The Protectowire FiberSystem 8000 has been designed for use as a linear heat detection system using state-of-the-art fiber optic sensing technology. The system consists of Type PFS Fiber Optic Sensor Cable and the PTS Controllers with related software. The PTS Series Controllers can be configured for various alarm criteria and can be connected to an approved fire alarm control panel using relay inputs and outputs. The system is specifically designed for high risk commercial and industrial hazards that demand high reliability and customized system features.

Protectowire’s distributed temperature measurement is based on the proven Raman-Optical Time-Domain-Reflectometry (OTDR) technique. An optical laser pulse propagating through the sensor fiber gets scattered light back to the transmitting end, where it is analyzed using a patented code sequence measurement concept. The backscattered light is spread across a range of wavelengths. Some of these wavelengths are affected by temperature changes while others are immune. The intensity of the Raman signals is a measure of the temperature along the fiber. By very accurately measuring the difference in the signal intensity of the backscattered light an accurate temperature measurement can be made.
