Minsk Research Institute of Radiomaterials of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus offers consumers systems for methane (CH4) monitoring on board of a vehicle under manufacturing agreement and is looking for partners interested in distribution services agreement.
OJSC "Minsk Research Institute of Radiomaterials" of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus manufactures systems designed to monitor the concentration of CH4 on board of a vehicle (in the engine compartment, in the places where gas cylinders are installed, in the engine liquid preheater compartment, at the vehicle gas cylinder reducers).

The system for methane (CH4) monitoring is based on optical, selective sensors with a CH4 concentration monitoring box. Gas concentration control sensors are designed to exclude water ingress with a possibility of replacing the sensing element.

The system consist of a microprocessor based monitoring box and five (5) CH4 (methane) sensors. The open architecture and the presence of two CAN interfaces make it easy to adapt to customer requirements for various applications.

The monitoring box includes:
* input for a gas concentration control LEDs test button;
* input for the control unit programming button;
* RS-232 outputs for the control unit programming connector;
* inputs for CH4 concentration sensors;
* outputs for control LEDs that signal CH4 detection in controlled places;
* output for a sound signal (buzzer) for the driver in case of an emergency state of the system;
* output for a sound signal (siren) or the relay in case of CH4 detection;
* output for the system operability LED;
* the possibility of diagnosing the serviceability of gas concentration control sensors;
* the possibility of determining the place of gas concentration using the corresponding LED;
* the possibility of diagnosing the state of the concentration system with the display of the corresponding light codes of the LEDs;
* the option to connect additional three (3) CH4 sensors.

Additional comments
The specialization of the institute includes the following main areas:
* development and production of the element base and functional units of microwave technology (solid-state microwave monolithic integrated circuits - low-noise amplifiers and power amplifiers, protective devices, switches, attenuators, frequency converters; microwave modules, etc.);
* development and production of optoelectronic components and modules based on them (photodetectors, light emitting diodes, semiconductor lasers, receiving and transmitting optical modules);
* production of materials for semiconductor production - gallium arsenide substrates of the "epi-ready" standard;
* development of sensor technology, modules and systems (sensors for inclination, pressure, acceleration, electronic compass, etc.);
* development and production of medical equipment.

The research and production base of the institute includes dedicated equipment which allows to develop and perform a full cycle of technological operations for the manufacture of microwaves, optoelectronic components, sensors of physical quantities based on microelectromechanical systems, equipment for the manufacture of medical products - Glucosen sensors etc. In particular, the equipment allows cutting semiconductor ingots of A3B5 compounds (GaAs, InP, GaN, etc.), grinding and polishing wafers, epitaxial growth, thermal diffusion and implantation of dopants, microcircuit packaging, control of their parameters, etc.

The Institute has a licensed software for electrodynamic calculations, its own library of standard elements, methods for monitoring and testing microwave components in the C, S, L, X, K wavelength ranges, electronic lithography equipment with a resolution of 100 nm, which provides a modern level of design standards.

As part of the specialization, the development of technologies, components and devices for various radio-electronic systems is carried out: radar systems, fiber-optic communication lines, laser rangefinders, systems for leveling and orientation of objects, control systems, guidance and navigation, etc.
