REPORT TITLE

GasSecure GS01 Wireless Gas Detector

ABSTRACT

This report details tests carried out to evaluate the performance of the GasSecure GS01 Wireless Gas Detector. The instrument is a battery-powered detector that monitors the free-space concentration of hydrocarbon gases, alerting operators to the presence of flammable gases and warning them of the risk of explosion. The evaluation programme was devised by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) UK, in response to a test requirement list supplied by the end user. Aspects of the wireless functionality of the detector were tested in the presence of deliberate interference, in a fully anechoic room (FAR); and the sensitivity of the detector to low concentrations of hydrocarbon gases in air was tested using the NPL Multi-gas, Multi-pressure humidity facility. To enable the testing of the GasSecure GS01, supporting instrumentation was supplied by Yokogawa (manufacturer) and by the sponsor of the project.
