Flame Detector Based on Epitaxial Metal Oxides (EMO) Technology

Descripción del proyecto

Unos detectores de incendios innovadores pueden ver las llamas

Cada día, miles de incendios evitables causan pérdidas de vidas y del patrimonio cultural y natural en Europa. Sin embargo, estos no se detectan a tiempo. Los detectores de incendios comerciales se activan cuando es demasiado tarde para intervenir y controlar el fuego. El proyecto financiado con fondos europeos FIRESENSE desarrollará un nuevo tipo de sensor. En comparación con las tecnologías de tubos de vacío actuales, este sensor será mil veces más sensible, cien veces más rápido en responder y cinco veces más barato, y funcionará a menores voltajes. Utilizará la detección ultravioleta e infrarroja para maximizar la precisión y eliminar los falsos positivos.

Objetivo

Billions of living creatures depend on the sensitivity of fire detectors to assure their safety. However, the available commercial fire detectors have a dangerous gap in that they are blind at the the ignition stage. Indeed, there are 5000 preventable Fire incidents each day in Europe which result in losses in lives and cultural/natural heritage.
Current commercial detectors follow the ISO834 standard, which is often too late for intervention and fire control.
Amongst existing fire detectors the fastest, most sensitive, and most remote are optical systems, using combined UltraViolet (UV) and InfraRed (IR) detection to eliminate false positives.
Nanovation has been working on UV photodetectors based on novel/biocompatible oxide materials since its inception. Today, it has demonstrated world leading solar blind detection with a more compact/cheaper/robust solid-state sensor which is, at least, 10 times faster and operates at lower voltages than incumbent vacuum tube technologies. This has been tested in an industrially relevant environment (TRL 6) for a fire detector and has already convinced potential industrial end-users. This breakthrough has been patent-protected and is based on a novel and proprietary manufacturing technology. Today, we are developing fast based on a business model driven by FIRESENSE’s further development and commercialization.
