FireLaser Heat Sensor for Hazardous Environments

Sensornet, a manufacturer of monitoring solutions and a subsidy of Tendeka, recently unveiled its FireLaser linear heat detection system. The system is suitable for applications where there is a danger of fires occurring.

The device is linked to a fiber optic cable and calculates temperature and distance at a multitude of points up to 4kn down the length of the cable, installed inside the system to protect it from the fire. It monitors the course of potential fire spots within a distance of 1metre and offers a better and cheaper system that can track fires. The fibre optic cable is so sensitive that it can pick up changes in temperature even as small as 1°C in just about three seconds.

'The system has been developed based on a technology that is being deployed in the volatile oil and gas segments, and is dependable and flexible enough to be deployed in distributed designs.
