Applications

Transmission, Temperature Monitoring & Real Time Thermal Rating

On-line Distributed Temperature Sensing and Real Time Thermal Rating for permanent monitoring are key to develop SMART grids and to get maximum power output from important land/submarine transmission links. With DTS & RTTR, Transmission System Operators and utilities can ensure effective, efficient, safe and sustainable supply of T&D energy as well as information in all communities today and in the future. Active and real-time transmission network management is now possible and TSO’s/utilities can safely run the network close to its overload state. Read more

Distribution Underground Network Temperature Monitoring

Underground power cable systems of key distribution feeders are submitted to high electrical, thermal, and mechanical stress. This stress can impact load transfer capacity, often limited by hot spots that can “damage” power cables, leading to reduced productivity, cable failure, and costly down-time. With LIOS EN.SURE for continuous monitoring of power cable infrastructure, productivity is optimized and maintenance cost + down-time are reduced. Read more

Conveyor belt temperature monitoring and fire detection

Conveyor belts running in dusty and harsh environments, such as mines, run the risk of overheating bearings that can lead to catastrophic fires - especially when transporting flammable material like coal. With a LIOS DE.TECT system from NKT Photonics, the conveyor belt temperature is monitored continuously over the entire length preventing fires and detecting worn-out bearings. Read more

Reactor skin temperature monitoring

LIOS PRE.VENT is the ideal solution for protecting assets influenced by high temperatures or pressure levels. Our MRSTMS allow for fully distributed and continuous monitoring of whole reactor vessel surfaces without drilling or making holes. With often large areas and many different structures to monitor the LIOS PRE.VENT is ideally suited as it provides long monitoring ranges and with our full support team backing the project the solution can be adapted to an exact application.
