Wireless gas detection

20 January 2014

Suitable for use in the oil, gas, petrochemical and utility industries, Crowcon's new Detective+ is a free-standing, transportable multigas monitor that can be used individually or in groups to monitor up to four gases at once. Up to 25 Detective+ units can be linked wirelessly and positioned as much as 100 metres apart.


Should wireless connection between two of the detectors weaken, the RICOCHET wireless network will 'self-heal' and automatically re-route communications via alternative devices. This creates a ‘mesh’ type network, ensuring reliability in safety-critical situations.
 
Over a dozen gas sensor options are available. If a dangerous gas level is detected, the Detective+ unit warns with a 104dBA siren and high intensity LED beacons,visible from all angles. A signal is also sent to other units, alerting workers to the danger. In addition Detective Net transmits fault information such as loss of signal or low battery power.
