In Germany alone, thousands of animals still fall victim to fires every year. Despite increasingly far-reaching regulations and modern systems for fire protection.
One of the main causes lies in the system: Common fire alarm systems do not really protect against fires. Smoke detectors do report smoke, and fire detectors do report fires. So they alarm when there is smoke or already a fire with the aim of putting an end to fires that have broken out as quickly as possible. However, by then it is usually already too late.
Most of the types of damage, however, provide a history. Only rarely is it the lightning strike that immediately leads to a fire. Most of the fires are caused by electrical equipment. There battery at the charger becomes slowly warmer, before it burns. A defective bearing on the electric motor of the milking system shows creeping deviations in temperature long before it overheats. If these indicators were also used for monitoring, many fires could be prevented before they even break out.
Not only reducing the risk of fire: also monitoring the quality of the air breathed and the failure of the barn ventilation system
Damage can be effectively prevented if it is detected and stopped before it starts. The Swiss startup DAPONA AG has made this truism its principle: With its open digital Industry 4.0 platform DAPONA.com, use cases for damage prevention can be set up in real time. Without programming, without a plant, without an app, without network access or power supply. DAPONA monitors all points around the clock, records, displays and triggers alarms at the first deviations. By e-mail, SMS, or call also to the cell phone. And all this at low cost. Whether it’s temperature, CO, humidity, volume or water ingress.
“Our platform was built to allow users to set up their own use cases, geared to their individual benefit,” says Thilo Heffner, managing director of Efficiency Systems, a partner of DAPONA AG.
And if late phases of a damage development should also be monitored, we can offer, for example, smoke detectors that monitor themselves and also alert the fire department without having to pay for expensive maintenance every 2 years.
