Gas Monitors

Gas detectors can be used to detect combustible, flammable and toxic gases as well as oxygen depletion. This type of device is used widely in industry and can found in a variety of locations such as on oil rigs, to monitor manufacture processes and emerging technologies such as photovoltaic. They may also be used in firefighting.
Gas detectors transmit warnings via a series of audible and visible signals such as alarms and flashing lights, (sometimes using LED technology), when dangerous levels of gas vapors are detected. As detectors measure a gas concentration, the sensor responds to a calibration gas, which serves as the reference point or scale. As a sensor’s detection exceeds a preset alarm level, the alarm or signal will be activated. As units, gas detectors are produced as portable or stationary devices. Originally, detectors were produced to detect a single gas, but modern units may detect several toxic or combustible gases, or even a combination of both types.
