Jackson Systems’ expands product line to include technology in gas detection

Jackson Systems has expanded their product line to include technology in gas detection.  Some of the more common air quality hazards that need monitoring include carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), NO2, O2, CL2, and refrigerants.  Whether you require a fully engineered gas detection network or a more modest detection solution, we can customize a solution to meet your needs.  Gas detection can be a critical component of ensuring clean air in parking garages, mechanical rooms, computer server rooms, or in refrigerant systems. 

One common gas detection application is monitoring CO in parking garages.  These monitoring systems can activate ventilation through relays on multiple levels and at varying speeds depending on the concentration of gas measured.  Cars produce carbon monoxide (CO) as a result of incomplete combustion.  When a large number of vehicles are within an enclosed area such as a parking garage, the concentrations of CO can reach harmful levels.  Large reductions in energy and maintenance costs can be had by activating fans only when CO levels reach a certain hazardous level instead of running them all the time.

A gas detection system typically includes a main control panel, sensors, and audible/visual alarm devices that can be linked to a controller or a building automation system (BAS).   The system can be either hardwired or wireless.  Many people think that wireless mesh networking is the wave of the future.
