- Cost effectively installs on existing ASD pipe network
- Centralised monitoring for real-time awareness
- Each ECO detector is pre-configured with one or two sensors
- Simple expansion to monitor multiple gases
- Integrates with PLCs/HVAC/BMS/FACP
Xtralis the manufacturer of the market leading VESDA and VESDA-E aspirating smoke detection (ASD) technology has developed the industries first multi-hole aspirated gas detector.
When used with the ICAM, VESDA and VESDA-E range of ASD products; ECO provides the industries first combine aspirated smoke and gas detection system. ECO provides early warning of toxic, oxygen and flammable gas hazards to protect personnel and property whilst ensuring business continuity.
How it Works
ECO uses an existing or new aspirating pipe network to actively monitor for gas escapes and build-ups.
Each ECO gas detector can house up to two gas sensors, and additional detectors can be added easily to the ICAM pipe network to monitor more gases if required. Pre-calibrated sensor cartridges are easily replaced in the field and make converting to different gas sensors or replacing sensors a simple task.
The ECO detector is configured using Xtralis VSC configuration software and can be remotely monitored using Xtralis VSM4 monitoring software. Both VSC and VSM can be used to download data from the on-board memory card for data analysis and trending of historical data.
Integration with other building systems, including fire alarm control panels, PLCs, HVAC and building management systems, provides real-time situational awareness for intelligent emergency response.
ECO by Xtralis provides significant installation and routine maintenance cost savings over conventional multi-point gas detection solutions, by reducing the number of detectors required to cover an area and by providing easy access for routine maintenance.
Hazardous area certified variants of ECO are available (approval pending).
ECO is designed to press fit onto 25mm air-sampling pipe work. To fit ECO simply remove a 60mm section of pipe when using 25mm air sampling pipe work or 4” for ¾” BSP pipe. ECO provides total flexibility to install one or more detectors anywhere on the pipe network enabling monitoring of a specific point, zone or total area.
