The team headed by professor Vašinek has focused on the monitoring of temperature quantities in connection with industry applications. The situation is that the currently available Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) systems are very expensive and have many drawbacks. However, the solution developed at VSB – Technical University of Ostrava has a number of advantages, besides its low price. It may be applied in the monitoring of thermal fields in tunnels, cable bridges, switching stations, transformers, heat distribution systems for possible heat loss, refinery and storing tanks, mining belt conveyors, etc. Via monitoring the thermal field, it is possible to prevent fires, failures and defects. Fiber-optic distributed temperature sensing system may also be used to monitor water content in walls. This makes the method unique as the competitors do not offer such a combination of functions.
