Honeywell has a new Bluetooth-enabled fixed gas detector for commercial and light industrial applications that enables users to easily set up and maintain the device using a simple smartphone app. The Sensepoint XCL is a wall-mounted device that monitors for hazardous levels of specific gases such as carbon monoxide, ammonia or methane, keeping operations and employees safe. When paired with a smartphone using a downloadable app, Sensepoint allows a single installer to perform commissioning, maintenance and management of the detector without requiring a second worker in a control room. It also simplifies generating system reports needed for regulatory compliance. The new Sensepoint XCL line of detectors includes gas-specific models to detect dangerous levels of ammonia, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen dioxide, oxygen or flammable gases. It enables users to wirelessly perform tasks up to 33 feet away for easy set-up and maintenance. The product is recommended for garages, parking areas, hospitals, boiler rooms, fuel stations, commercial kitchens, bus stations, warehouses, battery rooms, high-rise condominiums, loading bays and other commercial-industrial operations.
