Partnership to Deliver Wireless Gas and Flame Detectors Announced

Jan 10 2008

General Monitors (USA) is pleased to announce its partnership with Elpro Technologies (Australia) in offering wireless technology and communications for its advanced gas and flame detector product lines, which provide critical protection to people, equipment, and plants engaged in hazardous industries worldwide. Elpro, a subsidiary of the MTL Instruments Group, is a global leader in radio telemetry. The company produces a wide range of industrial wireless products for process and manufacturing applications and remains in the forefront of wireless development. Using Elpro’s wireless devices and ancillary components, General Monitors now provides secure and reliable wireless communication for its gas and flame detector product lines.

Industrial wireless communication continues to gain acceptance in many process instrumentation and safety applications, as did analog outputs and Modbus communications in decades past. Wireless devices today enable plant managers to deploy detectors in hardtoaccess areas or places where the cost of a fully wired installation is prohibitive. Wireless transmitters and receivers also allow users to combine different protocol devices into a common network. The wireless extension of industrial automation buses (e.g., Ethernet, wireless HART, Profibus) also facilitates the integration of multiple automation local area networks (LANs) in different sections of a plant.

Elpro products offered by General Monitors include wireless I/O units, wireless gateways, and wireless modems. Elpro radios are certified in 55 countries, which means they can be installed in most regions worldwide. The global focus of both companies allows their customers to replicate designs of fire and gas system in plants around the world to enhance safety and reduce cost.

By offering wirelessenabled detection, General Monitors extends its capacity to meet some of the most challenging process safety problems that the oil and gas, power generation, and chemical process industries face today. Lower installation costs and accurate and reliable communication are possible through the use of the appropriate wireless configuration, which provide process and plant engineers with more choices for the deployment of detection equipment.
