United Electric Vanguard Toxic and Combustible

Wireless HART Gas Detector

With a 5-year battery and 1-button calibration — the Vanguard is a gas detector built for the wireless world. Flexible monitoring of toxic or combustible gas can save lives. Its ultra-long battery life saves maintenance trips. Its easy push-button calibration; mount-anywhere mobility; and seamless, plug-and-play interoperability save time and trouble. And of course, eliminating long wiring runs saves thousands in installation costs..

United Electric Vanguard Toxic and Combustable Gas Detector

  • Each Vanguard detector has a Wireless HART® transceiver, an antenna, a display, a long life power module, a gas sensor, and a signal processor for the gas sensor. Vanguard uses a sensor architecture trademarked “Flexsense,” which allows the sensor to identify its target gas and self-configure to a Vanguard transmitter upon connection.
  • It is currently available with either a non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) methane sensor (0-100 %LEL), NDIR propane sensor (0-100%LEL), an electrochemical hydrogen sulfide sensor (0-100 ppm), an electrochemical ammonia sensor (0-100ppm) or an electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor (0-500 ppm).
  • Wireless gas detectors like the Vanguard can augment existing gas detection coverage with minimal financial and labor outlay. The Vanguard can be plugged-and-played anywhere in an existing Wireless HART® mesh and perform its role as a first line of defense for gas monitoring.

  • Wireless Capability
  • Field interchangeable toxic and combustible gas sensors
  • Interoperable with existing Wireless HART® networks and asset management systems (AMS)
  • Easy calibration and operation
  • 5+ year battery life (affected by polling frequency)
  • Heavy duty design with Class 1, Div 1 & 2 hazardous location approvals
