Novinium's PreVent manhole event prevention system comes with what is known as PreVent Smart Monitoring a cloud-based IOT solution that provides real-time actionable insights to help utilities prevent manhole events, including smokers, fires and explosions.   The Smart Monitoring solution allows utilities to gain insight into their underground vault structure and receive updated data analytics in real-time for asset management.  The Smart Monitoring web portal displays reading from sensor measurements including gas concentration levels of carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), methane, oxygen, hydrogen sulfide, water levels, relative humidity and temperature both internal and external. The PreVent Smart Monitor dashboard visualizes the sensor gauges, map and sensor list.

"PreVent is a unique product that addresses the root cause of manhole smoke, fire, and explosion  due to flammable gases in our aging underground infrastructure.  PreVent focuses on ventilation to ensure that those gases don't accumulate in the first place," says Mark Newton, VP of engineering at Novinium.
