OPThermo – Berkshire Photonics sells and supports the OPThermo line of Distributed Temperature Sensing systems from J-Power Systems. OPThermo DTS systems allow users to receive temperature measurements by using an optical light pulse that is injected at one end of the optical fiber and is subjected to scattering due to temperature gradients as it travels along the fiber. The Raman scattered light is then reflected to the photo detector. Since the speed of pulse propagation in the fiber is constant, the location where the scattering occurs can be determined by measuring the time between the pulse injection and the detection of the Raman scattering. The OPThermo line converts Raman Scattering information into temperature data, which is then accessible directly on the user’s computer. The included software allows users access to temperature display and recording data, display of temperature trends, alarm settings, statistical analysis, Excel format conversion, communication of measurement data, and self-diagnosis assistance.
