DTS Systems

Currently, CTEMPs has 3 Field Deployable DTS (FD-DTS) systems that are complete, stand-alone systems capable of running on solar power or 110/220 VAC. These systems are designed for harsh environments and can be configured with a variety of data storage and upload capacities. In addition, CTEMPs maintains 3 other types of DTS systems, one designed primarily for 110VAC power accessible environments, with less harsh environmental conditions (Sensornet Halo) and two high spatial and temporal resolution instruments (Silixa XT and Ultima). The Center also has access, on an as-available basis, to several DTS systems operated by OSU and UNR. Please contact the Center to determine if these systems are available and fit your needs.

Priority will be given for standard deployment periods (6 weeks) for these instruments.


Field deployable DTS (FD-DTS) system with standard (2 m) spatial resolution

Oryx DTS with 5km range and operating software. The system can be configured with 5 Crossbow/eKo remote weather stations, each with precipitation, solar radiation, wind speed, temperature and relative humidity sensors. Also included is a 3G compatible cell phone data link via Verizon network (SIM card provided) or on-board data storage. The system is enclosed in a weatherproof shelter. The standard system is shipped to operate on 110VAC. The system can equipped with 200 W solar panels for power in most applications (user must provide two 70 amp-hour deep discharge batteries).

Deployment includes stand-alone temperature loggers and reader, standard calibration bath coolers and mixing pumps.
