No False Alarms
Our laser sensors are programmed to lock onto a unique absorption feature of the target gas, in this case ammonia. This renders an extremely high detection fidelity. This technology allows it to avoid the false alarms common in chemical sensors that occur due to cross gas reactivity and sensor depletion.
Virtually No Maintenance Required
Our laser sensors are not depleted upon exposure to ammonia and other toxic gases. This means that frequent maintenance/calibration is no longer a requirement. With no filaments or chemical components, there is no need to calibrate the device and no need to replace sensors.

1. How can I be sure that the equipment won’t move out of calibration?
The laser diodes are positioned on the ammonia absorption line via a temperature controlling circuit and the lasers internal injection current. Both these parameters are factory set and tightly controlled via feedback loops. Any kind of drift will result in an error signal/notification from the device. The equipment is factory calibrated to gas concentrations and as long as the laser is positioned on the target gas absorption line, you can be sure that the device will not give incorrect gas readings.
2. Will dust, moisture and other particulates interfere with the laser and trigger a false alarm?
No, the system is calibrated to recognise a distinct absorption pattern that can only be generated by the target molecule. Note, that if dust, moisture or other particulates reach a critical level the system will trigger a
fault (see error codes) which will notify the user that a fault in the system has occurred.
3. Can the units detect lower explosive limits (LEL)?
Currently the equipment is specifically built to detect minute levels of ammonia to ascertain toxicity levels only. We will have an ex rated product witin months.
4. What happens if another gas has a very similar absorption feature as ammonia?
The lasers that we use are very specific to a single ammonia absorption line. The absorption lines are picked after extensive surveying and experimentation and the product virtually has no cross sensitivity to other gases.
5. What happens on a power failure? Does each unit need to be reset to the specific absorption feature? How is this done?
The system is programmed to fix the parameters on the laser to localise the ammonia absorption frequency line. When power is switched back on the unit will simply go back to the right absorption feature. The only time you will touch the device is while installing it :) (connect power and 4-20mA loop).
We do recommend that your authorised person conduct a functional test on the machine once power has been restored.
