Fixed gas detection systems are efficient and effective in reducing the risk of fire, explosion or employee injury in most applications. In some situations, however, it may be impossible or extremely expensive to install the wiring and conduit necessary to operate and monitor the wired gas detectors. In others, there may be a need to move the detectors from place to place to properly monitor changing hazardous situations.
Wireless Gas Detection Systems can augment and enhance your ability to keep your employees safe and protect expensive equipment. That’s why wireless gas detection is so essential. Learn how to maximize your safety and protect your areas with our wireless detection solutions.
Hazardous locations that contain toxic gases require continuous monitoring to maintain safe concentration levels. In the event of a leak or overexposure, there may be an increased risk of fire, explosion, or adverse health effects. With a wireless gas detector, you can ensure protection and allow you sufficient time to prepare for dangerous situations and respond effectively.
Safety Hazards of Toxic Gas
Toxic gas is any gas that could cause severe illness or in extreme cases, death if someone was exposed to a certain concentration of that gas. Every industry, from manufacturing to offshore drilling, deals with some form of toxic gas. Due to the odorless and invisible nature of most toxic gases, it’s vital for a facility to have a reliable gas detection system in place to keep concentration levels at optimal and safe levels.
Advantage of Wireless Solutions
Based on the guidelines set out by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), there are a number of hazardous situations that may occur when dealing with toxic gases. For many industries, there may be multiple hazardous conditions to monitor on a constant basis. GDS Corp wireless gas detectors support single or dual-channel operation using multiple sensors.
Unlike mesh networks designed for short-range applications, GDS Corp wireless detectors use frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) technology. This technology has many advantages, including higher power, longer range, increased reliability, and no requirement for a license.
Pro Tip: For optimal performance of your wireless connection, pay attention to certain factors such as terrain, frequency, path length, interference from other radio waves, antenna height, transmitter power, and receiver sensitivity.
Types of Wireless Gas Detectors
In order to monitor your facility or hazardous area, it’s important to specify a gas detection system that includes sensors, controllers and alarm stations. GDS Corp offers a number of wireless solutions, including combustible and toxic gas monitors, controllers, and visual alarm stations for your safety.
- GASMAX TX Dual-Channel Toxic/Combustible Gas Monitor – Dual-channel detection featuring toxic and infrared combustible sensors, advanced spread-spectrum radio technology, and a local display.
- C2/TX Wireless Site Manager – With a large LCD display and eight programmable relays, the C2/TX Wireless Site Manager can be used to monitor up to 32 GASMAX TX gas detectors.
- 95/TX Alarm Station & Repeater – Providing recognizable visual and audible alarms, the 95/TX Alarm Station is designed to monitor alarm status for up to 32 remote monitors and will alert users with warning lights or high-intensity horns.
Monitoring of Toxic & Combustible Gases
By providing real-time access to hazardous areas, your company has the ability to be prepared for any situation with wireless detection. GDS Corp offers a number of gas detection solutions that can be configured for a number of target gases.
