LIOS Technology GmbH is the leading manufacturer of industrial DTS systems with an impressive track record of more than 2000 installations in permanent operation. Its current DTS product series was carefully designed and thoroughly tested targeting reliable performance and smooth operation in industrial environments.
This was imposingly endorsed by the latest statistical field analysis in respect of a mean time between failures (MTBF) evaluation. Adapted from field data of our installed base of the current DTS product series an excellent MTBF figure of 28 years was reached.
High reliability is also a result of the unique optical frequency-domain reflectometry (OFDR) technology of the LIOS DTS systems. In contrast to time-domain technology using pulsed lasers with high peak powers, the LIOS OFDR DTS uses a quasi-continuous laser with low peak power resulting in a nonexistent wear out of the laser unit or any other fatigue of other optical components. The exceptional reliability favors the deployment of the LIOS DTS systems in all remote, safety-relevant and industrial applications.
