Development in collaboration with B-Sens, Mons, Belgium
Protected under patent EP2547993 - INFRARED OPTICAL FIBRE SENSOR
Licensed to Somni
Flame detectors are primarily intended to protect areas where anticipated fires will develop quickly, with little or no incipient or smoldering stages, or where ignition is almost instantaneous (i.e., flammable liquids and combustible gas fires, explosions, and flash fires).
The Somni Fiber Optic flame detector is purely passive fiber optic sensor. There are no electronic components or any power consumption inside the sensor, which makes this unique sensor intrinsically ATEX proof. The fiber optic flame detector optically senses radiation given off by flames.
The sensor technology is demonstrated under laboratory conditions compliant to TRL 6 and the following (preliminary) specifications have been reached.
Next step: Next step in the development is to install and demonstrate the technology in a real world environment. Somni together with B-Sens is looking for an innovative launching customer eager to field this novel technology!
