ROBUST AND POWERFUL SOLUTIONS
Reliable DTS and DAS technology for subsurface visualization.
Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) and Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) technology are revolutionizing methodologies and ways of understanding environmental dynamics. Scientists need to better understand the flow of water and glacier melting or the monitoring of earthquakes. AP Sensing addresses the needs for structural condition monitoring of dams, dykes and levees as well as monitoring leakages and water movements.
Geothermal Response Tests (GRT/EGRT): The traditional geothermal response test GRT is an accepted field method to determine the effective thermal conductance of the ground. Together with our experienced partners AP Sensing has developed a controlled enhanced geothermal response test (EGRT) solution. The geothermal parameters are evaluated in-situ as a function of the entire depth or length of the embedded borehole heat exchanger. The temperature along the heat exchanger pipes can be determined at any point and any time.
Geothermics - typical geothermic applications include:
- Calculating thermal parameters in conjunction with different geological layers
- Identification of aquifers and ground water streams
- Monitoring of cement hardening by measurement of hydration heat
- Inspection of appropriate annulus backfilling.
Geological techniques can include sub-surface flow and leakage detection at excavation pits.
Hydraulic engineering applications include seepage monitoring, detection of internal erosion and estimation of thermal parameters.
Earthquake Monitoring utilizes DAS to detect earthquake and analyze wave propagation over a long distance range.
AP Sensing carries out stringent tests for shock, vibration, EMC and the environment. We help you comply to all relevant security standards.
AP Sensing's support team has been a fantastic resource for us over the years. They have helped us with system development and implementation planning, and they are always quick to respond to our technical queries with competent advice and helpful tips.
For me AP Sensing is the forerunner for distributed optical temperature sensing. You can see in their solutions a combination of experience and creativity -- an intuitive design that works just as you'd expect, yet they aren't afraid to think out of the box, or provide a customized solution. They carry on their HP/Agilent heritage and continue to develop and advance, while remaining true to their core values of quality and reliability.
When I think of AP Sensing the first thing I think of is reliability. We completely trust and rely on their performance specifications and I know that their technical support team is dedicated and passionate about solving any problems that might come up.
Knowing the technology and market, it is evident to me that AP Sensing is the forerunner in distributed optical sensing. Their solutions reflect a combination of experience and creativity. Experience comes from their HP/Agilent heritage, the leader in test and measurement equipment, with decades of experience in developing and manufacturing extremely reliable and high quality products. The creativity comes from their passion and commitment to solving real customer problems.
When you do business with AP Sensing you get the feeling that you are working together as partners, because they listen to you and understand the challenges of your day-to-day operations. Communication with AP Sensing is always professional and it's obvious that they have the experience and the technical know-how to answer our queries.
AP Sensing's DTS is simply the best fit. We apply it together with ConveySafe in our coal power plants to protect our conveyors. The systems are rugged and completely reliable, need very little power, and can be seamlessly integrated into customer SCADA environments. Best of all, you don't just buy a box from them and that's it -- their post-sales support is outstanding.
The SIL-2 (Safety Integrity Level) rating that AP Sensing has achieved on its DTS gives us the confidence that their solution is going to work as planned, day in and day out, in high-risk environments. Our LNG terminal operators sleep better at night knowing that our assets are protected and security standards are met.
My AP Sensing regional customer support is fantastic: competent, thorough and quick to get back to me. They have been a key player in our complex pipeline projects over the years, and they truly offer through-life product support, from installation and commissioning to training.

Press Release Fiber Optic Sensing Association NOV 2017
The Fiber Optic Sensing Association (FOSA) today released details on more than 1,300 installations of distributed fiber optic sensing (DFOS) around the world, the largest representative sample ever published. AP Sensing is proud of our global contributions for pipeline leak detection, high voltage power cable monitoring and fire detection.
Temperature Monitoring of Boreholes July 2015
The Hamburg Ministry of Urban Development and Environment decided to use geothermal heat exchange pipes for heating and cooling. Over 1600 boreholes and borepiles were drilled and heat exchangers were installed in over 800 borepiles. In 27 boreholes fiber optic sensor cable was also installed to enable temperature monitoring with AP Sensing’s DTS (Distributed Temperature Sensing) solution.
