LIOS Technology provides the appropriate sensor cable for every application. The optical fibres are the most important components in the sensor cable. The optical fibres are preferably encased in a stainless steel tube which significantly increases the mechanical stability of the cable. In addition, the inside of the pipe is lined with gel to ensure that the sensor cable remains permanently water-proof. There are various options for jacketing the outside of the stainless steel tube, so that the sensor cable can be optimally adapted to every application.
Also fully dielectric cable design types are available where no grounding precautions needs to be taken.
The fact that temperatures are measured purely optically produces two major advantages for this technology. Firstly, the high electro-magnetic tolerance means that fields of disturbance, such as the high voltage cable itself, electric motors (pumps etc.) or any kind of transmitter (e.g. mobile phones), do not trigger disturbances. Secondly, the sensor cable is practically maintenance-free. All maintenance work can be performed from the evaluation unit.
