SensingGrid pods use the latest in sensor technology.
- Ultra-violet (UVTron) sensors from FireScout detect power ‘arcing’ and any flash of light or flame in a 180 degree radius or sphere.
- InfraRed sensors, also from FireScout, monitor temperature in the area and are sensitive to infrared vibrations caused by ‘glowing’ power lines or power station equipment.
- ‘Hall Effect’ magnetic sensors basically detect whether a Pod device door is open or shut.
SensingGrid Pods can accommodate any type of sensor and transmit sensing data across the SensingGrid ™ network.
