Gas Safety Systems Are As Easy As 1, 2, 3
(MILFORD, OH) - Following the guiding principle of KISS (Keep It Simple and Safe) Crowcon has developed the simplest complete gas safety systems for specific gas hazards. Comprising a gas detector, a control unit and a combined beacon/sounder to raise the alarm, "123" systems can provide a vital early warning to workers exposed to toxic gas, combustible gas or dangerous oxygen levels.
Supplied complete with all necessary cabling, the systems are installed by the customer in three easy steps. First the components are attached to the wall following the instructions supplied. Next the control unit is plugged into the electricity supply. Finally the customer mails a pre-paid reply card included in the package to Crowcon; an engineer then visits to carry out a gas check and verify the system.
"123" systems are available to detect oxygen, methane, chlorine, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide. With the components installed, personnel in the vicinity are alerted to gas hazards by means of a sounder and LED signal built into the control unit. To raise the alarm over a wider area the external warning unit, which combines a high-intensity flashing beacon and a wailing sounder, is also triggered.
The control unit has a single push-button to reset the system after an alarm, while the "at-a-glance" fascia features only four LEDs - two for each of the alarm levels, one indicating a healthy power supply, and one to indicate a fault. This makes it simple to understand and operate.
