Introducing a universal fixed gas detector from Scott Safety
Published: 07 January, 2015
The Meridian Detector accepts all sensor types and automatically determines the type of gas to be detected.
Scott Safety has launched what it terms as ‘the next generation gas detection platform’ - the Meridian Fixed Gas Detector, an ATEX approved detector that is designed to support a full range of toxic as well as combustible sensors.
The unique detector has a single detector head that accepts all sensor types, as well as a single set of accessories, to make it simple to use and maintain. Designed as a plug and play solution, the sensor fits into the detector which automatically determines the type of gas to be detected. No special tools or additional personnel are required, thereby minimising maintenance time and effort.
The new technology is linear and range agnostic: it allows for adjustments in sensor range without recalibration, as toxic sensors can be bench-calibrated in a lab and then installed in the field without the need for further recalibration. The Meridian 3-4 wire platform can also support up to three sensors per transmitter and can be installed remotely from up to 100 feet.
It meets the highest global regulatory approvals, including ATEX approval for use in explosive atmospheres, as well as third-party SIL2 certification from TUV-Rheinland.
