Xgard - Detectors for Oxygen, Flammable and Toxic Gas Detection

The Xgard range of gas detectors employs a wide range of electrochemical and catalytic sensors for oxygen, flammable and toxic gases, while Xgard IR uses infrared technology to detect flammable gases and carbon dioxide. Xgard comprises sensor, amplifier and junction box in one cast aluminium or 316 stainless steel housing designed for wall or ceiling mounting, and is available in flameproof and IS versions. Using plug-in modules for quick and simple sensor replacement keeps detector downtime and maintenance costs to a minimum. Xgard Is ATEX, UL and IECEx approved and is IEC61508 SIL compliant.

Fire and Gas Control Panels

To cater for all gas and fire monitoring needs from single-channel up to large floor-standing multi-rack fire and gas panels. These cost-effective, compact control solutions provide all the reliability, flexibility and ease of operation expected of modern programmable control equipment.


Wall mounted control panel with simultaneous diplay of up to four gas detectors or four fire zones. Features RS-485 Modbus communications, dedicated drives for two 24V DC audible/visual alarms, low and high alarm relays per channel, common alarm & fault relays and analogue outputs for each channel.


Monitors up to twelve gas detectors, three zones may alternatively configured for smoke/heat detectors. Up to 32 programmable relay outputs. RS-485 Modbus communications, event logging and PC software for configuration and monitoring. Available in wall mount, 19" rack mount or panel mounting formats.

Gasmonitor Plus

19" rack-mount control system for monitoring up to 16 gas detectors or 32 fire zones per rack. Zoning and voting of outputs can be configured via software, with a maximum of 80 relay outputs. Gasmonitor is designed to be built into wall-mounting or floor-standing cabinets which may contain multiple racks, but individual racks can be supplied.

Support for Older Products

Many of our systems for detecting fire, flammable gases, hydrogen sulphide and other toxic gases have been designed around the Ditech range of control equipment - the DI800, DI860, DI950 etc. which formed the backbone of many offshore fire and gas systems. Although the gas detectors used in these systems - the D15/6 and DI8 - have been superseded, there is a strong demand for the replacements we now supply.

Ditech Control Systems

The Ditech range of control cards: DI800 (Flammable Gas), DI860 (Hydrogen Sulphide) and DI950 (Fire) have long proved themselves dependable and reliable, having been in constant use in oil exploration and production environments for many years. Consequently our long expenence of adding to and modifying these systems is in constant demand. We also provide a repair service for these and other control cards.

Flammable Gas Detectors

Now superseded, the DI5/6 flammable gas detector is still a common sight in the North Sea and elsewhere. We can now supply ATEX-certified replacements for the DI5/6, and also regularly repair these detectors for a number of major customers. We can provide a competitive quotation for repairing your detectors.

Hydrogen Sulphide Detectors

The DI8 hydrogen sulphide detector is available as a spare for existing systems which use the DI860 H2S control card.
