Potential causes of hazards:
For storage of substances for which self-ignition cannot entirely be ruled out, e.g. lithium-ion batteries, temperature sensors are effective in a preventive capacity. This is an early warning system for detection of thermal events in the cabinet interior.
Particularly when charging batteries, the exhaust air function must be in operation continuously (24/7) and monitored to prevent the occurrence of heat energy inside the cabinet.
The doors of safety storage cabinets musts be kept closed after use, particularly if the stored materials represent a risk to safety due to their properties. This sensor can provide an easy way to monitor the status of the door (open/closed).
For early detection of fire with automatic alarm forwarding, an error indication can be sent by SMS, e.g. to the fire brigade and responsible managers.
