Electronic sensors are increasingly replacing traditional monitoring methods and TIOSH is at the forefront of developing these new cost-effective, high-quality solutions. Electrochemical sensors can test for many different analytes in air, soil and water. Used singularly or in a network, electronic sensors provide the ideal solution when you require continuous monitoring and rapid detection of negative events.
Exposed to the ambient air, these sensors report back qualitative information on air composition. Linking a network of eNoses to a remote computer system, via a wireless data communications link, creates a sophisticated early-warning system in the case of odor nuisance. The software on the remote computer will interpret the sensor signals in real-time.
Electronic sensors provide rapid detection of deviations in water quality in catchments, sewer systems and/or drinking water distribution networks. The latest strategies combine the advantages of laboratory analysis with online, sensor-based monitoring. If an anomaly is detected, automatic samplers will take a sample, which is then taken to our laboratory for investigation using traditional analysis techniques. Concurrently, measures can also be taken to protect the production process and the environment.
