Truly Universal Gas Detector

Meridian Universal Gas Detector represents next generation fixed gas detection. In this truly universal world, you'll better protect your people, improve system reliability and operational efficiency, and lower total cost of ownership.

Meridian Universal Gas Detector

What Makes Meridian Truly Universal

One Detector, One Head, Multiple Sensors - No need to specify multiple detectors. Meridian's head is designed to accept Scott's standard and Rock Solid electrochemical sensors, Catalytic Bead, IR and Metal Oxide Semiconductor sensors – that can be installed without powering down the gas detector. Meridian smart electronics automatically calibrate for the type of gas detected. And the ability to integrate with new Scott sensor technologies is a future-proof solution.

Flexible Communication - Meridian will support a number of industry standard communication protocols.

Universal Accessories - From calibration adapters to flow cells to deluge guards, one set of accessories serves all applications whether toxic or combustible gas detection.

The following accessories are available for the Meridian Gas Detector:

  • Calibration Adaptor:

    Calibration AdaptorEasily attaches to the sensor housing to deliver calibration gases to the detector head.

  • Flow Cell:

    Flow CellAllows customers to bring a gas sample to the sensor.

  • Deluge Guard:

    Deluge GuardProtects the sensor from heavy rain and harsh environments.

  • Duct Mount Kit:

    Duct Mount KitEasily attaches to the sensor housing to deliver calibration gases to the detector head.

  • Sensor Simulator:

    Sensor SimulatorA useful commissioning and trouble-shooting tool that allows you to locally simulate the concentration of gases to trigger a response from the detector. Use it to verify alarm set points, relay activations, communications and other troubleshooting tasks.

  • Universal Mounting Kit:

    With predefined cut outs, you can easily replace older gas detectors with the Meridian detector, reducing your installation cost.
