With the LIOS Sensing product line, NKT Photonics is the market leader in distributed optical sensing of temperature and strain for security, safety and fire detection.
Backed by more than 20 years of experience and thousands of systems in the field worldwide, we deliver LIOS monitoring solutions with unrivaled quality and performance.
We provide full solutions from the early design phase, over installation and commissioning, to service and maintenance when the system is deployed. Everything made in Germany under ISO 9001 and 14001 certification.
LIOS DE.TECT is a robust Linear Heat Detection (LHD) system based on optical fibres. With a range of up to 14 km and a sampling interval down to 25 cm, the system is ideal for fire detection in various large facilities like rail and road tunnels, conveyor belts, opera houses, warehouses and industrial facilities.
Even in hazardous, explosive environments like large gas and floating roof tanks for flammable liquids the LIOS DE.TECT system works maintenance free.
For all applications NKT Photonics provides the appropriate sensor cable; we will help you pinpoint the exact cable design and installation appropriate for your project.
The coating of the optical fibre can be tailored to optimally suit the required resistance to temperature conditions and mechanical impacts in your specific project.
Our support teams around the world will be able to provide decent support for the commissioning on site or through modern technology from remote places.
Charon is the visualizaton software that binds all sensing data together in one platform. Compatible with all LIOS sensing products and a range of third party sensors, Charon can combine data from multiple sources and store them in a common SQL database:
From the database, the sensing data can be presented both visually in one big overview where you can quickly get an overview on the entire installation being monitored, or later documentation and remote service information.

Since June 2019 a new Business Segment Manager took over the responsibility for the DE.TECT Linear Heat Detectors.
Mr. Felix Heck who has a background as Electrical Engineer and more than 15 years of sales experience in special fire detection in various companies will continue to grow the segment and provide the best support to customers globally with his team.
Felix Heck and his colleague Muneeb Elsaka will be present during the Intersec in Dubai in January 2020. Please be invited to the NKT Photonics booth in the German Pavillion.to talk about opportunities with Linear Heat Detectors.
