DiTeSt Ordinary Temperature Sensing Cable


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


The DiTeSt Ordinary Temperature Sensing cable is a unique sensor for the evaluation of distributed temperature over several kilometers.

The DiTeSt 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, waste disposal sites, on- and off-shore sites in gas and oil industry, hot spots, cold spots and leakage detection of flow lines and reservoirs, building installations, just to name a few.

The DiTeSt 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 bend insensitive 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 concrete, clamped to a pipe, anchored or glued.

Thanks to the special package design, the DiTeSt Ordinary Temperature Sensing cable offers high tensile strength, crush resistance, lateral water tightness, chemical and abrasion resistance and excellent rodent protection. This design also shields the sensing fibers from outside strain.

The DiTeSt Ordinary Temperature Sensing cable is fully compatible with the DiTeSt system and all its accessories.
