Why opt for a radio frequency gas leak detection and protection system?

In recent years, more and more of the equipment used in the home uses radio frequency technology and therefore the concept of ‘wireless’. The main advantages are their quick assembly and flexibility of use.

These benefits can also be found in Homplex gas detectors – we have extended the technical characteristics of equipment for the protection and detection of methane gas leaks by adding radio frequency technology to their operation. So you can keep a high level of safety and comfort in your own home.

The HD100 RF methane gas detector and its compatible centraliser (Finder HD200 RF) can be easily mounted by authorised personnel, significantly reducing discomfort due to easy wall mounting without the need to drill into walls or run additional cables. The powering of the equipment and therefore the commissioning is done by connecting the power cable to an electricity source.

The HD100 RF methane gas detector should be installed in the room next to the gas burner or in spaces where gas build-up can occur, such as the kitchen. The HD200 RF Finder should be positioned on the stairwell to listen for messages from nearby detectors. Received messages will be routed to the next finder until they reach the lowest level of the building where there will be another finder that will shut off the gas supply in case of an alarm.

Even though communication between the HD100 RF methane gas detectors and the Homplex HD200 RF centraliser is via radio waves, you will be informed when communication between the devices is poor or missing. The Homplex gas detector sends a pulse at fixed intervals to the nearby finder to let it know it is on.

Communication between the finder is also checked by emitting a pulse, just as with detectors.

The flexibility in the use of the system is also given by the possibility to use it both in individual houses, tourist resorts (guesthouses or hotels, as cooking facilities can be set up in several rooms, each with access to a gas consumer such as a stove or cooker), public institutions (including student hostels) or large residential projects. This is possible thanks to the configuration of the HD200 RF finder (even 480 HD100 RF methane gas detectors can be synchronised with it).

An important decision factor is also to reduce the risk of affecting the interior design of the building (especially if special interior fittings or finishes have been chosen) by eliminating the need to punch holes and run cables through walls to make connections between devices.
