Gas detectors are vital in every industry for the safety of personnel and the environments they work in. The systems and sensors available can vary depending on the industry, and many of them can be customised to suit the needs of the business. Using the latest technology will vastly improve the workplace’s safety, so in this blog post, we will look at International Gas Detectors’ revolutionary addressable gas detection and why your company should use them.
What are Revolutionary Addressable Gas Detectors?
International Gas Detectors (IGD) were the first company to bring addressable technology to the market, and proudly consider ourselves innovators in the gas detection industry. Our latest addressable technology is the 3rd generation we have developed: the 2-Wire Addressable (Sentinel+) gas detection technology.
Our Sentinel+™ addressable technology is revolutionary and considered the future of gas safety owing to its numerous benefits and features. It features sensor options for over 700 gases and vapours, and the technology can easily connect to the Internet of Things (IoT) and other remote devices. Additional features include:
- Immune from EMC, making it applicable to all applications
- Reduced cabling requirements
- Fast and secure communications
- 3rd Party approved
What are the Benefits of IGD’s Gas Detectors
We’ve already mentioned that our Sentinel+™ addressable technology is the first of its kind and a revolutionary piece of technology that naturally provides many benefits to our clients. To start with, using 2-Wire cable installation drastically reduces installation errors and cabling requirements compared to other systems currently on the market. Additional benefits include the following:
Our 2-Wire addressable technology is not only cost-effective, but also helps to improve lines of communication in several ways. The addressable technology continuously monitors the health and integrity of the system and its devices within less than a second, and our remote options discussed below make communication fast and stress-free. These features contribute to our system communication being 40-80% faster than any other technology on the market.
Our Sentinel+™ technology offers an 80% increase in flexibility as users can easily add any extra components straight from the nearest detector to the system and also benefit from Wi-Fi and remote monitoring. Another essential feature is that if you need to change the type of gas detected, the system will automatically update itself once it has been set.
Our addressable gas detection systems offer several remote options to make detection safer and more efficient. Data can be acquired remotely, and reports can be developed via a Wi-Fi connection. Other remote benefits include calibration and set-up via Wi-Fi and the option to set remote alarms and program alerts to be sent via the cloud, email or mobile, ensuring you never miss a crucial moment.
IGD: Revolutionary Addressable Gas Detection Systems
We have developed a wide range of addressable gas detection instruments that can increase workplace safety in commercial and industrial environments. Below, we will introduce a few of our products.
TOC-750 Addressable Safe Area Gas Detector
The TOC-750 Safe Area Detector uses our revolutionary Sentinel+™ communication and can detect over 400 gases and vapours. The detectors have multiple input and output options, which allows one detector to control up to 7 other devices. Sensor fronts can easily be replaced when they come to the end of their service life.
Other models include the TOC-750X, suitable for various hazardous use cases including gas and VOC detection in adhesive manufacturing, coating processes, and fuel storage. Specifically designed for near-continuous gas monitoring, ensuring alerts to gases and the safety of your team.
It is also important to highlight the revolutionary TOC-903-X5; the most versatile gas detector on the market with a dual detector capability for multiple gas detection at a single point.
