Crowcon Extends UL and CSA Approved Portable Gas Detector Range

(Erlanger, KY, May 2007) - UL and CSA approvals have been granted to a number of Crowcon's rugged, portable, single and multiple gas detectors. This means they can be used throughout the US and Canada for hazardous area applications.

The UL and CSA approved range now includes the new Tetra:3 for monitoring oxygen, toxic and flammable gases. The unit, which has a top-mounted display, is water and dust resistant to IP65 and submersible to IP67.

Other approved models include the Gasman range of single gas detectors and the Tetra multiple gas detector, all of which share common features with Tetra:3, such as instant and effective warning when a gas hazard is detected with a powerful audible alarm (up to 95 dBA depending on the model), an extremely bright unique flashing red/blue LED light, and a vibrating alarm.

Designed for use in the most demanding conditions, all Crowcon's detectors are simple to operate. Also, because each model shares many common features, such as single button operation, user training is incredibly simple across the entire product range.

Crowcon, a Halma company, is a world leader in portable and fixed gas detection instruments. More information can be found at the company's website:
