Introducing the Vanguard, the simple, fast solution to wireless gas detection.
Gas detection systems covering all critical plant points have traditionally been specified in the Front End Engineering and Design phase (FEED) of a project, during which, all potential gas detection measurement must be mapped so appropriate power and signal wires are available. However, it is nearly impossible and typically, financially infeasible to ensure coverage for all possible points, resulting in less than ideal coverage.
The cost of adding one new gas detector measurement point, including that of obtaining “hot” work permits, running conduits for wires, burying them, and other installation details, can be in the region of £10,000 per device for land based systems and as much as 5 times more for offshore applications in the O&G industry.
The Vanguard WirelessHART® gas detector is ideal for the monitoring of toxic and combustible gases without the need for costly, fixed wiring. With a five year battery life and one button calibration, the Vanguard is easy to operate and maintain.
WirelessHART technology removes the physical and economic barriers associated with wired devices, reducing up to 90% of installed cost and can be applied in both field and plant networks. The lower price of design and installation makes it more cost-effective to add sensing devices at multiple locations, detecting leaks that might not be identified by a sparse array of wired units until the gas concentration had become critical.
