DiTemp Ordinary Temperature Sensing Cable


Reliable and versatile cable for easy installation.
Small size and fast reaction to temperature changes.


The Ordinary Temperature Sensing cable is a unique sensor for the evaluation of distributed temperature over several kilometers, using DTS technology.

The  Ordinary Temperature Sensing cable is used in a wide range of applications that require distributed temperature sensing, such as temperature monitoring of concrete in massive structures, leakage detection of pipelines, seepage monitoring in dams and levees, waste disposal sites, smart buildings, just to name a few  .

The Ordinary Temperature Sensing cable is a small fiber optic cable, armored with stainless steel loose tube gel filled, stainless steel strength members and PA outer sheath. The central loose tube is hermetically sealed and contains 4 fibers with a dual layer acrylate coating for increased micro bending performance.

This sensor is particularly suitable for outdoors and harsh environment applications with different methodology of installation: direct burial in the ground or in concrete, clamped to a pipe, anchored or glued.

Thanks to the special package design the Ordinary Temperature Sensing cable offers high tensile strength, crush resistance, lateral water tightness, chemical and abrasion resistance and excellent rodent protection, while guaranteeing a fast response to temperature variations.

The Ordinary Temperature Sensing cables are delivered on spools and with all the necessary accessories such as gland nuts (IP65), pigtails and connectors (E-2000, FC-PC or other on request).
