Flame Detector Based on Epitaxial Metal Oxides (EMO) Technology

Descrizione del progetto

Nuovi rivelatori di incendio in grado di vedere le fiamme

Migliaia di incendi prevenibili ogni giorno in Europa causano perdite di vite umane e di beni culturali e naturali. Ma non vengono rilevati in tempo. I rivelatori di incendio commerciali si spengono quando è troppo tardi per intervenire e controllare l’incendio. Il progetto FIRESENSE, finanziato dall’UE, svilupperà un nuovo sensore. Rispetto alle tecnologie esistenti del tubo a vuoto, sarà 1 000 volte più sensibile, risponderà 100 volte più rapidamente e avrà un prezzo cinque volte inferiore, operando a tensioni più basse. Utilizzerà il rilevamento a raggi ultravioletti e infrarossi per massimizzare la precisione ed eliminare i falsi positivi.

Obiettivo

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.
