The GASMAX MX gas monitor is an ideal solution for wireless ambient gas detection applications. The monitor is designed to detect a wide range of toxic gases and volatile organic compounds in potentially hazardous environments. The monitor utilizes two internal non-rechargable 19AH Lithium-Thionyl batteries that provide up to two year operation for electrochemical sensors and up to one year for low power infrared sensors. Both 900 MHz and 2.4 GHz radios are available to support both North America and International installations.

The GASMAX GX supports both local and remote electrochemical, infrared or PID sensors. Due to their power consumption, PID sensors have a much shorter battery life and should be considered for temporary installations only. Several electrochemical sensors, including hydrogen sulfide and ammonia, are available in low, medium and high ranges.

The GASMAX MX features both push-buttons and non-intrusive magnetic switches that allow complete system configuration, regular calibration and product maintenance to be performed in the field without compromising the explosion-proof rating. The display screen always shows the current calibrated level of gas present at the sensor.

The GASMAX MX supports both local and remote electrochemical and low power infrared sensors. Electrochemical sensors can be used for distances of up to 100’ and infrared sensors 40’ from the monitor.

The GASMAX MX is CSA, ATEX and IECEx certified for use in hazardous areas and is ideal for power plants, refineries, tank farms, chemical plants, compressor stations, pipelines and other industrial installations where fixed gas detection is required for user safety and equipment protection.
