Trisens Cable

Trisens is our ultra-thin signature optical sensor. With an outer diameter of just 3 mm, Trisens is optimized for Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), Distributed Strain Sensing (DSS), and Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS). It also performs tremendously well when faced with other sensing applications and data transmission. In addition, the outer polymer sheath and high-grade steel tube give the cable enhanced flexibility and high resistance to mechanical stress.

The cable weighs only 11 kg/km, incredibly light for a high-performing optical sensor cable. As a result, it’s an excellent sensing solution for direct installation and comes ready for deployment. Additionally, its uniquely thin diameter and low weight make it a preferred option for integration in larger optical fiber configurations.

If you’re looking for an optical sensor and you think our Trisens fiber optic sensing cable is suitable for your project, get in touch to speak to one of our experts today. We approach every project as a unique challenge and deliver a custom solution to guarantee the greatest chance of success.
