PrevTech Innovations Inc., an agricultural electrical safety company based in St-Hyacinthe, Que., has launched their fire detection system in Ontario. The Smart Sensor system, when installed at the main electrical service, monitors for electrical and thermal anomalies and faults. 

It offers farmers surveillance of their electrical system, complete with detection, warning notifications and situation diagnosis, as well as access to their electrical network on their mobile phone.  

The sensor-based warning system can be installed by an electrician. If an anomaly is detected, a text message or email will be sent to alert the farm owner and/or their electrician. The system detects problems like non-conforming cabling and configuration, motor degradation and faults, faulty or inadequate ventilation and lighting components, and overheated breaker panels.  

“Farms, and livestock barns especially require a lot of electrical wiring, fans and motors,” says Dave Clipson, PrevTech director for Ontario. “And many of these are exposed to corrosive materials like manure that can cause problems in the electrical network. Our technology monitors these networks to detect and prevent the worst-case scenarios, like fires, as well as faulty equipment and motors that can cause downtime on a farm.”
