The GDS 306 system is designed to monitor gas levels from a number of sample-points, targeted at situations where the positioning of conventional gas sensors may not be practical.
This may be due to equipment security, cable routing, access for detector head installation/maintenance, harsh environment or a cost effective means of monitoring designated hazardous areas, typically – tunnels, marine applications, underground/high level voids, process control, landfill, multi storey car parks, brewing, horticulture, retail.


Gas samples are sequentially extracted for a timed period by a central control unit via fixed sample lines. A high rate sample is taken by the main pump during which a reduced rate sample is passed across the sensor device.
The central unit provides gas level readouts with two alarm trip points per line, providing a range of signal outputs for annunciator and control functions.
