Semtech 和 eLichens 以使用 LoRaWAN® 的新型传感器防止城市燃气泄漏事故
eLichens’ avolta ultra-high selectivity CH4 gas sensor avoids false alarms and is available for LoRaWAN networks
CAMARILLO, Calif., Jul. 27, 2021 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced its collaboration with eLichens, designer of avolta-CH4, a new connected gas leak detector running on the LoRaWAN® standard. Based on eLichens patented gas sensing technology, avolta is able to detect natural gas (methane) leaks with ultra-selectiveness, has no drift over time and has been approved by research gas laboratories.
eLichens 首席营销官 Marc Attia 说：“危险的气体泄漏会对家庭和城市造成严重的环境和经济危害。据估计，有四分之一的管道和天然气基础设施气体泄漏发生在燃气表附近。我们为 avolta 气体传感器选择实施 LoRaWAN 连接，因为它具有低功耗、长距离的能力——可对任何破坏性气体泄漏立即发出警报，让人们及时响应并挽救生命。最关键的是，eLichens NDIR 传感器技术和 LoRaWAN 的搭配能够直接符合 UL1484 和 EN50194-1 标准。”
eLichens 的 avolta 气体检测器在 LoRaWAN 上运行。由于其气体传感器的功耗极低，并集成 Semtech LoRa® 器件和 LoRaWAN 标准，因此电池续航时间可长达 10 年以上。eLichens 传感器无需重新校准且使用寿命长，非常适合住宅和工业市场中的气体泄漏检测应用。通过利用不断发展的互联传感器和低功耗无线网络，燃气公用事业公司可以显著降低其燃气输送网络中的燃气泄漏。eLichens 的新型气体泄漏检测器可以选择性地检测和监测（利用 eLichens 的 NDIR 传感技术）低水平的甲烷泄漏，以便根据泄漏的性质做出适当的决策。
Semtech 无线和传感产品事业部物联网产品营销和战略副总裁 Marc Pegulu 表示：“越来越多的城市选择利用物联网 (IoT) 解决方案来改善和保护市民的生活，他们应该受益于新的燃气安全解决方案。该系统采用 LoRa 和 LoRaWAN，展示了物联网技术的力量，可为所有人创造一个更智慧、更安全的地球。”
