HONEYWELL Safety and Productivity Solutions is offering a new, connected gas detector designed to keep industrial operations safe and to make set-up, maintenance, calibration, and compliance reporting faster and easier. The new Sensepoint XRL fixed gas detector monitors industrial operations for specific hazardous gases, such as carbon monoxide or methane, and it is Bluetooth-enabled, meaning it can be set up and maintained remotely using a smartphone app.
“Setting up, maintaining and generating reports from a fixed gas detector has usually been a time-consuming effort involving ladders or lifts, multiple personnel and even temporary equipment or production shutdowns,” said Duncan Gooch, product manager, gas detection, for Honeywell Industrial Safety. “With Bluetooth connectivity, a single worker can quickly carry out a range of tasks – from set-up and maintenance to reporting – in hazardous areas from the safety of ground level.”
When paired with a smartphone app available from Honeywell, a single worker can perform many standard maintenance tasks, including set-up, commissioning, and calibration wirelessly from up to 33 feet away. Sensepoint XRL and the app also can quickly produce system reports necessary for safety and environmental regulatory compliance.
Sensepoint XRL is certified for explosive area applications. The detector monitors for hazardous levels of one targeted gas from among 23 toxic and combustible gases, including methane, carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulfide. It is IP 66-rated and uses a metal enclosure to stand up to rugged use, including hosedowns.
