The new Sensepoint XRL fixed gas detector is designed to keep industrial operations safe while making set-up, maintenance and compliance reporting faster and easier by leveraging Bluetooth connectivity. It monitors industrial operations for specific hazardous gases, such as carbon monoxide or methane, and can be set up and maintained remotely using a smartphone app.

“Setting up, maintaining and generating reports from a fixed gas detector has usually been a time-consuming effort for industrial workers across the region. Previously, their work involved using ladders or lifts, multiple personnel and even temporary equipment or production shutdowns,” said Edmond Mikhael, general manager, Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions (SPS) in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa (META). “Honeywell’s Sensepoint XRL leverages new Bluetooth connectivity, so a single worker can quickly carry out a range of tasks – from set-up and maintenance to reporting – in hazardous areas from the safety of ground level.”

When paired with an intrinsically safe smartphone available from Honeywell, a single worker can perform many standard maintenance tasks, including set-up, commissioning, and calibration wirelessly from up to 33 feet away. Sensepoint XRL and the app can also quickly produce system reports necessary for safety and environmental regulatory compliance.

Sensepoint XRL is certified for explosive area applications, and is suitable for wastewater, utilities, power generation, laboratories, and downstream oil and gas operations and applications ranging from laboratories to boiler rooms, and from fuel stations to warehouses.

The detector monitors for hazardous levels of one targeted gas from among 23 toxic and combustible gases, including methane, carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulfide. The detector is IP 66-rated and uses a metal enclosure to stand up to rugged use, including hosedowns.
