  • Mobile Gas Leak Detection System

    ABB Ability - ABB Ltd.

    ABB Ability mobile gas leak detection system uses ABB’s patented Off-Axis Integrated Cavity Output Spectroscopy (OA-ICOS) technique which has a sensitivity and precision more than 3000 times greater than legacy methods. This enables identification of leaks several hundred feet away from the source. Current traditional leak detection technology is slow, laborious and costly. Operators walk on foot near the pipeline with hand-held sensors making paper-based reports.This is slow and can lead to dangerous leaks being missed or not identified in a timely manner. ABB’s Ability mobile gas leak detection system delivers a low cost per leak solution with low false positives. Reporting includes mapping of the leaks available via a mobile app and measurements as Cloud-based service. The system consists of ABB’s Methane/Ethane Analyzer, a GPS, a sonic anemometer and proprietary leak detection software that presents real-time geospatial maps of multiple gas concentrations in real time. The software’s sophisticated leak detection algorithm combines the system’s measurements of gas concentrations (CH4, C2H6), local coordinates (GPS) and local wind velocity (sonic anemometer) to estimate the location of the leak. Readings are stored in the device and can be transmitted in real-time to the cloud for centralized monitoring.

  • Seismic Sensor

    D7S - Omron Electronic Components

    Specifically designed for the growing number of autonomous IoT systems, the Omron D7S provides high precision measurement of spectral intensity, allowing it to reject impulse vibration noise and only respond to genuine seismic activity. Despite its compact size, D7S features its own internal memory and I2C interface, allowing it to be readily integrated into IoT devices. Potential applications include smart electricity and gas meters, wireless sensors, industrial control panels, electricity distribution panels, fire-prevention systems, home appliances such as heaters and gas stoves, chemical plants, expressways, bridges, tunnels, roads and many more. Commenting, Fabrizio Petris, Senior Business Development Manager of Omron Electronic Components Europe said, “Earthquakes are extremely common around the world. On average, 50 earthquakes strike each day, or about 20,000 a year. Many are weak enough to go unnoticed but some are catastrophic. We can’t always predict when a catastrophe will strike. Using the new sensor from Omron, designers can make systems safer and minimise the risk of secondary damage after earthquakes by safely shutting off and stopping hazardous devices. The sensor can also help determine damage by mapping seismic intensity and providing building collapse information.”

  • Solar Tracking and Pyranometers

    Sutron Corporation

    The demand for energy increased rapidly over the past few decades and the trend is not expected to stop in the near future. These made researchers focus on renewable energy sources due to the environmental pollution caused by the existing conventional energy sources. Solar energy is one of the renewable energy that has been under deep research. Unfortunately, the main problem with this solar energy is lack of efficiency. Different positions of the sun throughout the day causing the static photovoltaic modules position inefficient. This paper discusses design of two-axis solar tracking system that considers multiple input parameters such as solar radiation and photovoltaic module output power for more efficient solar tracking algorithm. Some of solar tracking system conducted by other researchers uses various types of sensors including light dependent resistor (LDR) which is not efficient and can be easily affected by external environmental factors. Instead, this paper proposes the usage of pyranometer for measuring solar radiation as one of the input parameters. The solar tracking system controlled by PIC microcontroller that collects multiple input parameters and uses developed algorithm to control stepper motor movement for optimal photovoltaic module positioning.
