Wireless Gas Detection System

A gas detection system is a system that detects potentially harmful gases. For example, H2S, which can be a life threat to organic compounds, humans, and animals.

Most of the gas detectors are portable but in some applications, you might need wireless gas detection, in this post, I am going to explain what is a wireless gas detection system, its benefits, and its application.

Wireless gas detectors and wireless gas monitors are designed for continuous monitoring of toxic and combustible gases in the air. 

Due to its wireless nature, there is no complex system configuration that is needed. Once you assign a unique address to the wireless gas monitor or wireless gas detector your job is complete. 

The wireless gas detection system will collect all the necessary data information from the sensor including the target gas type. 

There is onboard historical data logging available as well as RTU communication for PLC and DCS systems.

Importance of Wireless gas detection systems

Rapidly deployable and fully flexible, wireless gas detection systems provide you with a wireless gas detection solution that is as consistently safe and reliable as fixed gas detection networks. 

Operating as a stand-alone solution or as a backup post-incident wireless gas detection solution to ensure continued monitoring when traditional systems have failed.

Wireless gas detection systems are ideal for established and new-build plants, mines and tunnels, rapidly changing developments, or where you are expanding your operation beyond your initial scope.

Benefits of the wireless gas detection system

  • Reduced Installation cost. No more expensive cables and underground cable conduits.
  • No troubleshooting on the cables.
  • No damage to the main controller in the event of lightning and storms
  • Easily add more sensors to the existing wireless network
  • No complicated system configurations.

Application of wireless gas detectors

Wireless gas detectors can be used in a lot of environments, some of the applications of wireless gas detectors include:

  • Tank forms
  • Refineries
  • Chemical storage
  • Water & wastewater treatment
  • Drilling rigs
  • Offshore platforms
