‘Plug & play’ DTS based sensor concept

To facilitate easier to use DTS measurements, and to make it more standardised ‘plug & play’ DTS sensors could be developed. By using standard fibre optic connectors, these sensors can then be deployed more easily, and the measurements are more reproducable.

As an example, I sketched this soil temperature profiler, based on Campbell Sci.’s SOILVUE10 sensor (image links to PDF file):
