Remote sensor assembly enhances Crowcon’s XgardIQ fixed point detection solution

In response to an industry-wide drive towards improved worker safety and reducing maintenance downtime, Crowcon has developed a remote sensor assembly to work alongside its XgardIQ fixed point detector and transmitter.

Crowcon XgardIQThe remote sensor assembly allows the gas sensor to be located where gas leaks are most likely to happen, possibly including air ducts, tanks and storage locations. Meanwhile, the XgardIQ transmitter, with its display screen and push-button controls, is located where it is easy and safe to access, up to 15m away.

“Employees are put at increased risk when conducting routine maintenance in difficult-to-access locations”, explains Fiona Macrae, Marketing Manager. “We wanted to develop a solution which helps minimise this risk and, at the same time, reduces expensive maintenance downtime.”  

The new XgardIQ remote sensor assembly allows sensors to be located in the best location to monitor for gas leaks while the detector/transmitter is located where it is safe and easy to access
XgardIQ is suitable for use in many areas across a site. XgardIQ is compatible with sensor modules for a variety of gases, including flammable, toxic and oxygen.

This technology will appeal to health and safety professionals, engineers and support facilities managers operating within the oil and gas, chemical, petro-chemical, utility and power industries.
