Gas detection solutions offer monitoring for dangerous leaks in inclement weather
Honeywell has announced the release of two new Bluetooth-connected gas detectors that can deliver continuous monitoring for dangerous gases even in fog, rain, snow and other inclement weather.
The new Honeywell Searchline Excel Plus and Searchline Excel Edge are open path gas detectors which use advanced optics and high-powered infrared technology, allowing the devices to stay online in weather conditions with worse visibility and at longer distances than before. The new gas detectors also feature Bluetooth connectivity.
These gas detectors can be paired with the Honeywell Fixed Platform App, offering simplified maintenance and testing procedures. For example, because workers can use their mobile devices from up to 20 meters away, or approximately 60 feet, to conduct maintenance checks, they do not need to regularly climb on high ladders and risk falling to check devices located high off the ground.
The Searchline Excel Plus monitors short and mid-range applications from 2 to 120 meters (6 to 393 feet), allowing workers to monitor specific areas or equipment for continuous safety applications.
The Searchline Excel Edge provides long range perimeter or fence line monitoring from 60 to 330 meters (196 to 1,083 feet). Along with wind direction and speed, worksite employees can both monitor whether their facility could be emitting harmful gases into neighboring areas or if neighboring plants may have leaks of their own that are crossing onto the facility's property and need to be addressed.
