MeshGuard Wireless Gas Detector for Carbon Dioxide

The MeshGuard Wireless Gas Detector for Carbon Dioxide is a battery operated, semi-fixed, wireless monitor for gas detection.

The MeshGuard Wireless Gas Detector for Carbon Dioxide is a battery operated, semi-fixed, wireless monitor for gas detection. An internal mesh radio allows it to form an intelligent network for enhanced safety without costly wiring. MeshGuard systems can easily be configured for a broad range of applications. The MeshGuard easily connects to a controller and/or wireless alarm bar.

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. Rae Systems MeshGuard is a rugged, battery powered toxic gas detector integrated with a wireless mesh radio modem.

MeshGuards can quickly be installed in hazardous locations and remote readings are displayed on the FMC 2000 wireless controller. The MeshGuard gas detection monitor is a key building block of the MeshGuard intelligent network of connected sensors for gas detection in industrial safety applications. The MeshGuard system is designed for quick deployment in areas where traditional fixed gas detection monitors might have been used in the past, but a lower cost solution with faster deployment is needed. Rae Systems MeshGuard is available with field replaceable precision sensors specifically designed to sense toxic and flammable gases.
