The canary bird was used in coal mines until the mid-sixties because of their sensitivity to carbon monoxide and other toxic gases. For the miner, the bird’s song was a sign that no toxic gases were present and when the bird went silent, miners knew they needed to make a quick exit. Today’s canary will start to “sing” when there is a gas leak in tunnels or rooms. 

Our market today is mainly in China. Here, you will find fixed installations with our IR sensor technology.

In the oil & gas industry, you will find environmental monitoring for leak detection on platforms and where fracking is taking place.
