OZ Optics’ Foresight™ series of fiber optic Distributed Strain and Temperature Sensors (DSTS) BOTDA modules are sophisticated sensor systems using stimulated Brillouin scattering in optical fibers to measure changes in both strain and temperature along the length of an optical fiber. By deploying a sensing cable that includes standard telecom single mode fiber, users can detect when and where the strain or the temperature of the object has changed and correct potential problems before failure occurs. A unique feature of our Foresight™ DSTS system is its ability to measure temperature and strain, simultaneously and independently, allowing regions of temperature induced strain to be identified.
