A gas detector or sensor detects the presence of gases that can be toxic, flammable, or combustible. These devices are typically installed in manufacturing process or storage facilities in which by-products that are produced can release gases of known characteristics. In addition, these detectors can be used to detect oxygen depletion or in firefighting. A typical gas detector is calibrated for the specific gas and detects a range of that gas concentration. If that level exceeds its preset range, an alarm is activated. These units can be installed in an alarm system or they can be stand-alone. Stand-alone units activate a flashing light and horn to notify the operator of the condition, providing an opportunity for evacuation. The units can also be connected to a control system to automatically shut down the process.
