Introduction & Measurement Principle
The Protectowire Company, Inc. FIBERSYSTEM 8000 PTS
(Protectowire Temperature Sensing) Series is optimized and
certified for fire detection applications. The instrument can be
configured for various alarm criteria and can be connected to a
fire control panel using the relay inputs and outputs. It is
categorized as a DTS (Distributed Temperature Sensing) System
which are optical fibers functioning as linear sensors. For the
purposes of this manual these two acronyms (PTS and DTS) are
used interchangeable.
The Protectowire Company, Inc.’s distributed temperature
measurement is based on the proven Raman-Optical TimeDomain-Reflectometry (OTDR) technique. An optical laser
pulse propagating through the fiber gets scattered light back
to the transmitting end, where it is analyzed. The intensity of
the Raman signals is a measure for the temperature along the
fiber.
The backscattered light is spread across a range of wavelengths.
Some of these wavelengths are affected by temperature changes
while others are immune. By very accurately measuring the
Difference in the signal intensity of the backscattered light an
Accurate temperature measurement can be made.
The local position of the temperature is determined by measuring
the arrival timing of the returning light pulse similar to a radar
echo showing the distance of a car or plane.

The temperature resolution is dependent on several factors:
Measurement time, spatial resolution, the length of the fiber, the
loss of the fiber, splices or connectors.

Expert does not automatically detect the hardware (for
example, if it is connected via Ethernet).
See the Agilent IO Libraries Suite Online Help for more
information on the Agilent Connection Expert and on
configuration changes.
c) Test instrument connections:
The Agilent Connection Expert will automatically send an
identification query (*IDN?) to any instrument that has its
auto-identify property set to Yes. (See the Agilent IO
Libraries Suite Online Help if you want to turn this function
off.)
When you see a green check mark on the icon representing
an instrument, th is mean s that the instrument has
responded as expected. (Note that some instruments do
no t su ppo rt th e *IDN? que ry and will n o t re spon d
appropriately.) The instrument’s identification information is
displayed in the properties pane on the right side of the
Agilent Connection Expert window.
You can explicitly test the connections to your instruments,
and exercise more of their functionality, by selecting Send
commands to this instrument in the task guide or shortcut
menu. This starts the Interactive IO utility, which allows you
to send commands to your instruments and see their
responses. Note that some commands (such as *TST?,

Terminating the Sensor Cable
To guarantee the specification throughout the whole
measurement distance, we recommend excess cable of 20 m and
a proper fiber termination (for low back reflection).
This can be achieved by ending the cable with a clean angled
E2000 connector.
Acceptable alternatives are
• winding at least 5 loops with diameter smaller than 5 mm
• polishing an angle or cleaving of more than 14° to the cable
end (and cleaning)
• immersing the (clean) end of the cable in index matching fluid
• any combination of winding, polishing and immersing
according to this discribtion here.
Note: To terminate the sensor cable by polishing or immersing, a
clean cable end is necassary.

Connecting to the Output Relays and Input Lines
The FIBERSYSTEM 8000 provides one fault relay and 43
alarm relay outputs (dry contacts) that are capable of notifying
the user of alarm conditions.
• The fault relay is normally closed and in the event of an
instrument failure or power outage open.
• The alarm relays are normally open and in the event of an
alarm condition the contacts will be closed.
Reverse logic can also be programmed. The resulting ability to
switch between these two states provides several options for the
user. For example, the output can be used to operate external
audible alarms or warning lamps.
Each relay circuit consists of an additional serial and parallel
resistor as on the figure below.
Available order options:
• Standard: Rs = 0 Ohm and Rp = unequipped
• Equipped (on request): 1k / 10k with Rs = 1 kOhm and Rp =
10 kOhm

Safety Precautions
The Protectowire Company, Inc. assumes no liability for the
customer’s failure to comply with these requirements.
WA RNING
Do not remove instrument covers when operating.
Ensure that the instrument is switched off throughout
the cleaning procedures.
Even there is no direct danger for the eyesight because
of the low laser power we suggest to not look directly
into an optical device attached to an optical output
when the device is operational.
Use of controls or adjustments or performance of
procedures other than those specified may result in
hazardous laser radiation exposure.
To prevent electrical shock, disconnect the instrument
from the mains before cleaning. Use a dry cloth, or one
slightly dampened with water, to clean the external
case parts.
Do not open the card cage inside the FIBERSYSTEM
8000, or attempt to clean it internally.
Do not install parts or perform any unauthorized
modification to optical devices.
Refer servicing only to qualified and authorized
personnel.
What do I need for Proper Cleaning?
To clean the optical connectors and adapters on the
FIBERSYSTEM 8000, we recommend

Troubleshooting and Maintenance
If there is a measurement problem, check if the sensing fiber is
correctly connected.
If you still have a problem, contact The Protectowire Company,
Inc. for support.
Check the sensing fiber
The sensor cable is verified in the “loss-trace” provided with a
FIBERSYSTEM 8000 instrument.
• A typical loss-curve shows a continuous loss of signal power
over distance
• Connections (plug-ins or splices) have to be seen as steps in
the loss-curve (as in the picture above at 400 m)
• Changes to other fiber types can result in different gradient (in
picture dashed blue)
• A fiber break results in a step to a low level in the loss-curve
(like -80 dB)
• A typical connector loss is around 0.25 dB, a typical value for a
splice is around 0.05 dB (at about 1064 nm, 50 um multimode
fiber). For values higher than 0.4 dB (connector) or 0.1 dB
(splice), one should consider to clean, repair or substitute the
connector or to re-do the splice.
34
NOTE
A bad connection may cause high reflections that may disturb the
measurement results in the proximity of the connection.
NOTE
Connection of two fiber types with different properties may cause
a step in the loss trace (positive or negative, depending on the
fiber properties), which is not caused by the connector.

Specifications and Regulatory Information
Definition of Terms
Absolute accuracy (uncertainty)
When taking the difference between measured temperature and
actual temperature of the sensing fiber, ΔTi, over measurements i
throughout operating temperature range and throughout sensing
fiber temperature range, the Absolute accuracy (uncertainty) TAbs
is calculated as:
TAbs = StDevi{ ΔTi }
“StDevi{}” denotes the standard deviation over index i (over a
sufficiently large sample base).
The statistics (standard deviation) is based on an ambient
temperature evenly distributed over the operating temperature
range and a sensing fiber temperature evenly distributed over the
sensing fiber temperature range over measurements i.
Conditions: Uniform temperature distribution within the fiber.
After calibration of the sensing fiber as specified. Other conditions
as specified.
Note: Calibration of the sensing fiber adjusts the temperature
difference ΔTi, at the calibration points to zero.
Note: Any temperature offset or nonlinearity of the user’s
reference thermometer used for calibration of the sensing fiber
leads to a corresponding temperature scale error of the
FIBERSYSTEM 8000 unit.
Distance range
The maximum distance from the FIBERSYSTEM 8000 that can
be covered by a measurement (e.g. along a bore hole, along a
tunnel or along a power cable). The distance range depends
on the sensor configuration (see “Single-ended” and “Dualended”).
Dynamic range
The maximum two-way loss within the sensing fiber to and from
the measured point for which the FIBERSYSTEM 8000 unit is
designed.
Note: The two-way loss in dB is twice the (one-way) loss of the
sensing fiber from the FIBERSYSTEM 8000 unit system to the
measured point.
38
The Protectowire Company, Inc.
FIBERSYSTEM 8000 - Linear Heat
Series
Specifications and Regulatory Information
If not differently stated, Dynamic Range applies to spatial
resolution 2 m and maximum channel option.
Measurement: the dynamic range value is derived from the
specification assuming a sensing fiber with loss per kilometer as
specified.
Fiber distance
The distance along the sensor fiber from the FIBERSYSTEM
8000 connector to a measurement point. A FIBERSYSTEM 8000
trace shows temperature or loss over fiber distance.
Intermediate update time - itut
Selectable parameter for the time until an intermediate
temperature trace is available from the FIBERSYSTEM 8000.
An intermediate trace shows the measurement progress during
one measurement time - mtime (see Measurement time mtime), but with limited temperature resolution (see
Temperature resolution). It is intended to give a quick
(unspecified) view to an installer. No alarm analysis is done on
intermediate traces.
Note: Intermediate traces are not stored within the
FIBERSYSTEM 8000 after completion of a measurement. They
are continuously displayed,
but not stored by the
FIBERSYSTEM 8000 Configurator.
Internal data storage capability
Number of traces that can be simultaneously kept in the internal
volatile memory of the FIBERSYSTEM 8000 unit.
Measurement time (per channel) - mtime
Selectable parameter for the time a FIBERSYSTEM 8000
acquires measurement data on one channel for calculating a
temperature trace. In a repeated measurement, it is also
the period between two measurements.
In dual-ended mode, it is the time per direction.
Note: mtime must be equal to itut (see Intermediate Update Time)
or an integer multiple (e.g. mtime of 30 s with an itut of 10 s).

Specifications and Regulatory Information
Fiber length quantities (these are: distance range, fiber length,
spatial resolution) are measured along the fiber. If the fiber is
wound within a cable, a corresponding factor must be considered
to transform from fiber length to cable length.
Temperature repeatability (standard deviation)
Specifies the variation of the measured temperature Ai in
repeated measurements i at the same location within the sensing
fiber under constant conditions. Temperature repeatability
(standard deviation) TRep is calculated as:
TRep = StDevi{ Ai }
“StDevi{}” denotes the standard deviation over index i (over a
sufficiently large sample base).
Temperature repeatability includes the effects from channel
switching between repetitions.
Conditions: Constant properties of the sensing fiber, same
temperature distribution within the sensing fiber between
repetitions. Other parameters and conditions as specified.
Temperature repeatability throughout operating
temperature range (standard deviation)
Same as “Temperature repeatability (standard deviation)”, but
with the ambient temperature being allowed to change over
repetitions. The statistics (standard deviation) is based on an
ambient temperature evenly distributed over the operating
temperature range over repetitions i.
Conditions: same as for “Temperature repeatability (standard
deviation)”.

Temperature resolution
(standard deviation over distance)
Specifies the variations in the measured temperature at points i
along the sensing fiber held at uniform temperature. Only higher
spatial frequencies of the variations are considered. Higher
frequency variations are calculated as the difference Hi between
measured curve and smoothed curve. The smoothed curve is
calculated as the average measured temperature within a
smoothing window around each point i.
Temperature resolution TRes is calculated as:
TRes = StDevtrue,i{ Hi }
StDevtrue,i{} denotes the true standard deviation over points i.

Note: The true standard deviation is derived from the empirical
standard deviations of repeated measurements. The empirical
standard deviation of a single measurement may be higher or
lower than the specified value.
Measurement: Smoothing window size s = 50 m (±25 m around
each point). Sampling resolution set to minimum (0.5 m).

Angled Connector Specifications
Specifications require an angled connector at the optical
interface.
Angled contact connectors help you to control return loss. With
angled fiber endfaces, reflected light tends to reflect into the
cladding, reducing the amount of light that reflects back to the
source.
The contact connector on your distributed temperature system is
an E2000 APC angled, you can only use a cable with angled
connectors. Never connect a straight connector directly to an
angled connector.
