NevadaNano will collaborate with Universal Safety Monitoring.
NevadaNano, a Reno, Nevada (U.S.)-based gas sensor manufacturer, has announced that Universal Safety Monitoring (USM), will use NavadaNano’s Molecular Property Spectrometer (MPS) flammable gas sensors in USM’s mobile-phone-based personal safety monitors.
The collaboration will allow end users to monitor gas risks in the field to make proactive safety intervention decisions remotely as well as receive alerts and “not safe-zone-entry” notifications.
NevadaNano produces leak detection sensors for propane (R290) and other gases used in residential and commercial applications, including air conditioning, vending machines, commercial refrigeration, and clothes dryers.
In this collaboration, USM, based in Australia, will use the NevadaNano MPS technology in its BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) gas sensors.
To monitor gas risks remotely, end users will connect their mobile phone fleet to USM’s Universal Data Interface using USM’s Global Asset Monitor iOS or Android apps, and by pairing the USM BLE Clip-On Gas Sensor to a mobile phone.
The “non-IS” solution is expected to be available end of Q4 2021 following Pilot A Trials. The “IS” version is scheduled for 2022. Ultimately, USM plans to incorporate NevadaNano sensors into the next iteration of its Personal Safety Monitors.
“NevadaNano is proud to work with USM to bring our revolutionary gas sensing technology to the mobile phone market,” said Ralph Witten, President, NevadaNano, in a statement. “We are confident that together, our innovative technology and their drive to make the most reliable and effective safety systems more accessible to workers and businesses, will set new standards of performance and quality.”

In addition to better health outcomes, the devices can improve regulatory and compliance for businesses, the companies said. “We are drawn towards utilizing NevadaNano sensors in our devices, to ensure the best possible work, health and safety outcomes for our clients,” said Emil Tastula, Managing Director at USM.
NevadaNano also recently announced that its MPS gas detectors will be available from European distributors Maritex Company, Gas Sensor RU and GVZ Components.
