MeshGuard Battery Operated Wireless Gas Detector

The MeshGuard wireless detector has been upgraded to the MeshGuard Steel, intrinsically safe, IP-65 rated weather resistant wireless gas detection system. This MeshGuard system will be available only until 12/31/2019. Please contact AFC for more information on the MeshGuard S.

The MeshGuard Wireless Detector is a rugged, battery powered toxic gas detector integrated with a wireless mesh radio modem. Key features include extremely fast installation, self-configuration of the network and worldwide approved wireless frequency coverage. Designed for use in harsh environments and easy to service in the field, MeshGuard is a truly unique wireless solution for remote chemical detection in hazardous areas.

MeshGuard combines the most advanced gas detection technology for industrial safety applications with the latest in connected data systems. Because the system includes powerful wireless sensors that can be deployed rapidly in any environment, MeshGuard eliminates the need for lengthy and costly installation projects. By detecting and recording a wide range of deadly gases and quickly relaying the data to an easy to understand central system, safety personnel have up to date information from throughout the network of sensors at a finger’s touch.

The NDIR LEL sensor for MeshGuard draws less power allowing continuous LEL monitoring for up to two months before the battery needs to be replaced. The new NDIR LEL sensor is poison resistant, works in an inert atmosphere and has a long sensor life.
