the passive fiber optic cable, which until now has only been used for data transmission, becomes a long chain of tens of thousands of sensors that detect vibrations and ambient noise along the railroad….forms the nervous system of an acoustic, digital twin of the rail network
Most railway tracks already utilize pre-existing, trackside fiber optic cable infrastructure, which makes fiber optic train and rail monitoring incredibly advantageous.
AP Sensing's sensor cables are specifically optimized to detect thermal radiation and are sensitive to both radiation and convection….confirmed in many fire tests….extraordinary feature "Fire Monitoring"…all AP Sensing sensor cables are tested for their functional integrity as per IEC 60331-25
AP Sensing recently conducted trackside fire trials with the German rail operator, Deutsche Bahn....Experimenting with various types of fire accelerants....test results were incredibly successful
AP Sensing’s fifth generation DAS system builds upon leading measurement capabilities with the superiority of unique 2P Squared technology….35 years of experience and thousands of systems installed worldwide
