Technical Datasheet

Our linear heat detection technical datasheet can be downloaded below. This document provides details on the fire detection and temperature monitoring principles of the system, including the use of Ramen scattering and Optical Reflectometry Code Correlation for precise temperature measurements. This sheet also provides comprehensive information on all aspects of the linear heat detector base unit and fire sensor cables as well as details regarding installation.

White Paper

Our white paper is written by Co-Director of APA and experienced veteran electrical engineer in the mining sector Ubaldo Torre. His work presents the complex science of linear heat detection technology in a concise and comprehensive manner. The following resource explains in more detail the benefits and applications for distributed temperature sensing technology in improving operating conditions and preventing fire in industrial environments.
