Gassonic Introduces Observer-I Ultrasonic Gas Leak Detector
Designed with Artificial Neural Network (ANN) intelligence and real-time broadband acoustic sound processing technology, the Gassonic Observer-I Ultrasonic Gas Leak Detector offers reliable ultrasonic gas leak detection while suppressing false alarms. The Gassonic Observer-i Detector allows full analysis of the sound spectrum down to 12 kHz. The ANN algorithm has been “trained” to automatically distinguish between unwanted acoustic background noise and dangerous gas leaks, providing a broader leak detection range and increased sensitivity to smaller gas leaks without interference from unwanted background noise.
THe Gassonic Observer-i Detector can be installed without time consuming "training" sequences, and provides detection distance (up to 28 meters). ANN technology ensures that the Gassonic Observer-i Detector has the same gas leak detection coverage in high and low noise areas. Because it is self-adaptive, the detector requires no alarm set points to be configured, nor adjusted if background ultrasound changes over time.
The Gassonic Observer-i Detector features the Senssonic™ self-test function that checks the device’s electrical integrity and microphone every 15 minutes and ensures the leak detector is operational at all times. The microphone and the microphone windscreen are constantly monitored to ensure that the detector always has optimal sensitivity and detection coverage.
Designed to support large plant distributed control systems, the Gassonic Observer-i Detector features HART and Modbus communication compatibility, along with 4-20 mA output, providing complete status and control capability in the control room. It features ATEX, IECEx, FM, and CSA approvals and is SIL 3 suitable. The Gassonic Observer-I Detector is suitable for FPSO vessels, petrochemical refining plants, gas/hydrogen storage facilities, gas compressor stations, LNG/GTL trains and LNG re-gasification plants.
