Scott Safety, a global leader in gas and flame detection and protective equipment, announces the launch of the Meridian Fixed Gas Detector – the next generation gas detection platform. The first truly universal gas detector, Meridian is ATEX approved and designed to support a full range of toxic as well as combustible sensors.
Unique in the industry, the Meridian Fixed Gas Detector has a single detector head that will accept all sensor types, as well as a single set of accessories, to make it simple to use and maintain. Designed as a plug and play solution, the sensor easily fits into the detector and automatically determines the type of gas to be detected. No special tools or additional personnel are required, thereby minimizing maintenance time and effort.
To help customers reduce operational hazard and maintenance cost, Scott Safety has designed a toxic sensor technology that is linear throughout and range agnostic. This allows for adjustments in sensor range without recalibration as toxic sensors can be bench calibrated in a lab and then installed in the field without the need for further recalibration. The Meridian 3-4 wire platform can also support up to three sensors per transmitter and can be installed remotely from up to 100 feet.
Meeting the highest global regulatory approvals, including ATEX approval for use in explosive atmospheres and with third party SIL2 certification from TUV-Rheinland, the Meridian Fixed Gas Detector ensures best-in-class safety and performance.
