Sensortran Offers Auto-Correcting Calibration for DTS

SensorTran Inc. has announced the general availability of its Distributed Temperature Sensing Calibration Module. This proprietary hardware system enables the "first truly auto-correcting calibration for DTS," which provides electrical power companies simple, fast and reliable DTS deployments, according to the company.

SensorTran’s Calibration Module, which works in conjunction with the company’s DTS 5100 family of products, offers continuous verification of calibration and automatically adjusts itself when discrepancies are identified. This auto-correcting capability provides cost savings by ensuring DTS reliability and freeing crews to concentrate on mission-critical tasks instead of resource intensive DTS deployments.

“Auto-corrective calibration has always been seen as unachievable in the DTS industry, and we’re proud to be the first to offer this critical capability,” said Kent Kalar, CEO of SensorTran. “Our Calibration Module creates an auto-correcting DTS solution that requires minimal human intervention, even with portable systems that are connected to new probes all the time. This creates tremendous time and cost savings for our customers.”

The module creates a unique thermal profile with high- and low-temperature reference points that DTS units automatically recognize as being generated by the Calibration Module. The DTS unit uses these temperature reference points for accuracy verification and auto-correcting the calibration of the DTS.
