A Gas detector is a device that detects the presence of gases in an area, often as part of a safety system. This type of equipment is used to detect a gas leak or other emissions and can interface with a control system so a process can be automatically shut down. A gas detector can sound an alarm to operators in the area where the leak is occurring, giving them the opportunity to leave. This type of device is important because there are many gases that can be harmful to organic life, such as humans or animals.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas that is found in combustion fumes, such as those produced by cars and trucks and small gasoline engines. CO from these sources can build up in enclosed or semi-enclosed spaces and people in these spaces can be poisoned by breathing it. The most common symptoms of CO poisoning are headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion. High levels of CO inhalation can cause loss of consciousness and death.
Provides automatic feedback and fan or valve control that can help reduce combustible gas concentrations in parking garages, battery rooms, maintenance facilities, and other locations that require combustible gas detection. – ETL Listed
