Stage 1: Prevention by detecting anomalies
thermal, environmental, mechanical & power abuse
4 types of anomalies

Stage 1 is the most important stage to monitor. Why? Because this stage typically gives you ample time to react and fix the problem before it results into a catastrophic event.

Fires could be have multiple origins like UPS issues, short-circuits, eletrical overloads, water, corrosion, earthing/grounding.
All those risks are unmonitored. Yet they only cost a fraction of the fire detection and suppression system.

Thermal or temperature sensors are used to detect if equipment is running abnormally hot. This can be done using contactless sensors like our thermal imaging sensors. Or it can be done using our contact based temperature sensors.

Environmental sensors monitor for any conditions that could result in failure of the equipment. As an example, short circuits can be caused by water, dust deposits or even corrosion from gasses such as H2S. With the right sensors you can mitigate those environmental risks.

Power sensors check for electrical conditions that could cause equipment to malfunction. Think of issues like earthing/grounding, power voltage surges, harmonics or over-current. But not just your AC power source, also your DC batteries and UPS systems are a fire risk. Those power related risks can be monitored 24x7.

Fire companies are revamping the traditional fire safety approach with InfraSensing's sensor platform, ushering in an era of fire prevention, not just detection & suppression.

Fire systems traditionally focused on rapid smoke detection and damage control. But what if you could identify potential risks before they cause damage?

That's where InfraSensing comes in. Our innovative sensor platform detects early warning signs that often precede fires, such as thermal, environmental, power, or mechanical anomalies. It's the only industrial-grade solution available for preemptive anomaly detection.

Our sensors complement existing fire systems, offering an enhanced layer of protection when paired with proper monitoring, alert procedures, and risk mitigation strategies.

Embrace the new era of fire prevention with InfraSensing. We're not just about damage limitation; we're about preventing failures before they occur.
