Gas detection controller

Permanently linked with one or more fixed gas detectors, the gas detection unit is the most important element of a fixed gas detection installation. It provides continuous and permanent monitoring and generates actions in the event of gas detection: signals, automatic controls or remote transmission of alarms. This device allows continuous monitoring 24 hours a day, 7 days a week against the dangers associated with the presence of explosive, toxic or asphyxiating gases.

Fixed gas detectors continuously measure gas concentrations in the ambient air. These concentrations are then converted into an electrical signal to be sent to the gas detection unit which will process them. In the presence of gas, the gas detection unit generates previously defined actions such as sound and/or light signals, interlocks or alarm reports (remote transmission).

Gas detection controller

In gas boiler rooms, for example, the presence of gas will be controlled by the cut-off of a gas safety solenoid valve. In the tertiary sector, in the presence of concentrations of toxic or asphyxiating gases, forced mechanical ventilation will be controlled by the plant. For other installations, the gas detection unit will control an action on the TGBT (battery charging room for example) in order to instantly stop the process.

There are two types of controllers: single-channel controllers and multi-channel controllers. The only difference is the number of gas sensors that can be connected to it. A single-channel detection unit can only be connected to a single sensor, or even two at most. Multi-channel detection units can be connected to several fixed gas detectors, from 2 to several dozen.

Gas detection installation

In addition to the supply of fixed gas detectors associated with gas detection units, we also offer complete management of the file, from functional analysis to on-site installation to commissioning (configuration and calibration of gas detectors) and user training.

We work with the biggest brands in the field - such as Dräger, Honeywell Analytics, Oldham, and MSA - a guarantee of quality and compliance with current standards.
