2400X1600 EV Guard

Portable CO-Sensor

A new fire detection solution – specifically designed for damaged EVs, secured transports and service and maintenance.

When a damaged vehicle is placed on a tow truck, in quarantine or in a workshop, EV- Guard is a portable detection system, which continuously monitors the whole vehicle for early signs of ventilation, thermal runaway and fire risk.

It uses sensors to immediately detect smoke emissions, which are placed in four high-risk areas:

  • Under the bonnet
  • Inside the vehicle
  • On either side of the vehicle where the high-pressure valve of the battery sits.

If smoke is detected, the sensors will produce a loud siren signal, flashing light and email notification, which either:

  • Alerts the workshop staff and tow truck drivers to take necessary actions and precautions
  • Can be connected to the fire alarm, which can enable the first responders to take necessary actions and precautions.

EV Guard

Through early detection of thermal runaway, EV-Guard:

  • Can reduce necessary EV quarantine and downtime
  • It makes the work environment safer for workshop staff and tow truck drivers

User groups

With the increasing use of EVs, the risk of thermal runaway has escalated. At Dafo Vehicle Fire Protection AB, we are working to make electrification safe by focusing on preventing/delaying thermal runaways. We have identified groups that need quick and early detection of potential thermal runaway ignition to make it possible for them to take appropriate actions quickly. These are First and Second Responders, Tow Truckers, Auto Mechanics, and people working with Automotive Quarantine 

Fire fighter

First and Second Responders

In accidents or other scenarios involving EVs, first and second responders can place the sensor modules onto the vehicle and quickly be alarmed if danger levels are reached.

Two trucker

Tow Truckers

The tow trucker can worry-free tow the EV after placing the sensors modules. The system will warn the tow trucker, who then can find a safe location to offload the vehicle and evacuate the area.

Auto Mechanics

Auto Mechanics at a workshop can fit sensor modules to the EV before work is started. If the sensors start alarming, they can then follow procedures and evacuate the workshop.

EVs that are sent to the impound will be put in a specific facility where they will be in quarantine. The sensors will alert people nearby and send an SMS and E-mail to the person in charge.
