OTP-W - Fiber optic temperature sensor

Robust measuring tool to monitor temperature in extreme conditions in Oil & Gas Applications

Pure monocrystalline

Opsens Solutions’ OTP-W fiber optic temperature sensor offers the highest performances in the industry. The sensor uses the temperature-dependent birefringence of specially selected crystal as the temperature transduction mechanism. Because of the pure monocrystalline material used, the OTP-W does not shows thermal creeping or aging as with other fiber optic sensors based on the thermal dilatation of glass optical fibers.

Combined with Opsens Solutions’ WLPI signal conditioning technology and with the inherent advantages of fiber optics, the OTP-W delivers unprecedented repeatability and reliability in the most adverse conditions such as high level of EM, RF, MR and microwave field environments as well as with high voltage and rapid temperature cycling conditions.

The standard operating range of the OTP-W is from -40 °C to +300 °C. High resolution and accuracy versions are also available for smaller range.

The OTP-W is compatible with all Opsens Solutions’ WLPI signal conditioners. This compact and robust fiber optic temperature sensor, available in different cables and sheath options, is customizable according to customer specific applications or for OEM-type application:

  • High temperature environments
  • Industrial process-control and monitoring applications
