Acoustic gas detector FlexSonic is intended for recognition of ultrasonic vibrations that accompany such incidents, like a gas leak. When there is leakage of gas under pressure, facing the expanding gas produces sound frequency outside the audible part of the spectrum in the ultrasonic range (about 20 kHz). The intensity of the sound generated by the gas leak is determined by several factors, including such as: the pressure, the volume of leakage, the viscosity of the gas and the distance to the source of the leak.
Sound detection less susceptible to environmental factors (such as strong winds), which could affect the ability of traditional technologies based on the measurement of gas concentration that appears the leak.
An additional level of protection provided by an acoustic detector FlexSonic, in combination with trace and (or) point gas detectors offers the most comprehensive solution to the problems of detecting gas leaks.
The acoustic detector FlexSonic consists of two main components: an acoustic sensor AC100 and acoustic ATX10 transmitter. Acoustic sensor AC100 uses a high-performance microphone and digital signal processing for continuous monitoring of the audio signal. Wide dynamic range and spectral resolution allow us to provide excellent sensitivity, and maximum limit false positives. Acoustic ATX10 transmitter evaluates the incoming acoustic power spectrum data from the sensor AC100 and determines an alarm condition.
