Gas Detection

A wireless gas detection system is an industry that should see substantial growth in the next several years.  A wireless gas detection system can provide fast reliable protection from harmful gases such as CO and NO2. Complying with building codes, saving energy and protecting occupants are 3 benefits of a gas detection system.  A wireless gas detection system is usually made up of a controller, several transmitters, and possibly a relay module to operate exhaust fans and louvers.  The control panel or monitoring panel is the brains of the system.  The transmitters are your gas sensors that communicate ambient air readings to a central monitoring panel.   The relay module is a remote switching station to control exhaust or louvers.  The system captures local readings at each transmitter and uses zone averaging to keep fluctuations from activating circulation systems unnecessarily.  The control panel can activate only those fans and devices necessary to clear the affected area when gas concentration rises.
