A Japanese company is looking for distributors in the EU for their earthquake early warning system. This system distinguishes between earthquakes and other strong noise generated near the device and does not issue erroneous alerts. It can be easily integrated in private homes and industrial sites, centrally managed, and can issue an alert in 11 languages. The company is looking for partners in risk and earthquake-prone countries under distribution services agreement.



A Japanese SME is looking for European distribution partners for their innovative earthquake early warning system.

Their earthquake sensor alarm device can issue an alert before the arrival of a strong earthquake. The built-in accelerometer detects primary waves and issues an earthquake alert before the arrival of the seismic strong shaking by the secondary waves.

The device has specialised software to distinguish between earthquakes and noise generated near the device, which means it does not issue erroneous alerts and as a result, prevents from financial loss. The device can issue alerts in 11 languages: Japanese, English, Chinese, Korean, Indonesian, Persian, Turkish, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and Arabic.

The device can be easily integrated into existing building control systems and it can send the signals to control broadcasting facilities, elevators, production facilities etc. in accordance with the estimated seismic intensity level of the earthquake.

This company has a long experience with earthquake warning systems. The device has been perfected through multiple trials.

They are aiming at a distribution agreement with partners in Europe active in risk, disaster, building and facility management, especially in earthquake-prone countries.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
In comparison with other devices, this device: - is strong in distinguishing between earthquake and noise generated near the device through its software algorithms that have been extensively tested (precision of 0.1 gal, unit of gravitational acceleration) and can use multiple checkpoints. In comparison with other similar devices this device does not issue erroneous alerts. - can both be used in private homes and industrial sites, multiple locations can be set-up and centrally managed. - is very customizable in terms of the alerts that it can send. Sirens can be connected, as well as broadcasting facilities, PC displays and industrial facilities. Also, existing building control systems can be connected. - has multi-language support: voice announcements are pre-programmed in 11 languages and ready to be used, while other devices only have a limited number of languages available for announcements. - provides after the alert a map of the situation in a 100 km radius that can be immediately observed on a PC screen in order to locate the best area for to find shelter. While other equipment often requires a lengthy and difficult installation procedures, the device of this company can be set up easily by non-experts through a simple personal computer connection, not through a complicated setup procedure on the device itself.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
The partner sought should be active in risk and disaster management or could be a provider of equipment for building or facility management. The role of the partner sought is to distribute the device in the EU.
