Blast-Zone Safety Using Wireless Gas-Detection Monitoring



Release Notes: 

Area monitoring for toxic and flammable gases using wireless detection systems keeps workers and assets safe by providing a cost-effective early warning system for unseen threats such as hydrogen sulfide and methane during oil and gas exploration operations. Oil and gas exploration often involves the controlled use of explosives to facilitate extraction. Traditionally, wireless devices have been shut off to ensure detonators are not inadvertently triggered by a radio frequency (RF) signal. Turning off wireless gas-detection equipment, however, leaves workers exposed if the atmosphere becomes bad – that is, until now.
