Utility Gas Safety System

In partnership with Semtech, Oxit’s Smart Utilities Team is
creating the new standard in intelligent energy initiatives.

About Utility Gas Safety System (UGSS)

Oxit’s Smart Utilities Team has created a new high performance technology that enables flexibility in secure solutions by making devices more power efficient. Combining the power of The Internet of Things (IoT) with LPWAN Connectivity, Oxit’s collaboration on the Utility Gas Safety System (UGSS) helps utility companies connect data quickly without interruption, enables secure communication and allows for optimal flexibility in gas safety solutions. Oxit’s work on the UGSS exemplifies the utilization of world class hardware created from a robust design to ensure safety, and drive cutting-edge development in control and command capabilities.

SAFETY

A comprehensive gas safety system ensures safety by collecting and transmitting data from sensors, enabling real time leak detection and gas disconnection.

SUSTAINABILITY

UGSS is designed for customers to understand their gas usage, leading to increased conversations.

The Oxit Strategy

whearas the WaterCop solution is designed for metering supply lines and valve control.
Oxit’s Smart Utilities Team has leveraged infrastructure technologies like the GasMarshal system and the WaterCop solution to come together to create a comprehensive gas safety system. The GasMarshal system improves overall safety standards by utilizing a sensor to detect gas leaks, whereas the WaterCop solution is designed for metering water supply lines. Our Smart Utilities Team is developing this new comprehensive system combining these practices to create a bleeding-edge transformation for control and condition monitoring for homes and commercial buildings.

HOW CGSS ON A LPWAN NETWORK MITIGATES RISK
FOR UTILITY COMPANIES AND CITIZENS:

Downstream Remote Regulator Shut-Off Valve

During an earthquake or construction mishap, a regulator on the mainline or supporting pipelines will detect an interruption in the flow of the gas and send a signal to automatically close valves.

Intelligent Gas Meter with Integrated Shut-Off

Gas meters for individual housing units have the capability to easily shut off gas supply from the wireless device in the event of an emergency.

Remote Methane Detection

Sensor devices detect methane gas and alarm residents to evacuate prior to reaching hazardous levels or explosion.

Cloud Monitoring, Actuation, and control

The system facilitates intelligence and enables multiple points of gas disconnect, even during network outage.

A LoRa-enabled CGSS Solution Delivers

Complementary coexistence with existing AMI systems.

Up to 10 years battery life for gas meter (add space)
