Gas Detector X-on / Portable Gas Detector

Gas Detector X-on
Gas Detector X-on

Many dangers are not perceptible by human senses. In many industrial applications this may lead to serious threat to human’s health and the safety of installations. Gas detection instruments are used in order to detect certain gases and to warn the worker of possible risk in time. I developed the design concept for the mobile, compact and very robust gas detector X-on. Due to the very small and easily exchangeable sensor inside the product, up to three gases can be detected. The user is warned by an optical and acoustic signal and by vibration. The small and ergonomically formed warning device can be attached easily to the worker´s clothing.
