Amerex Gas Detection Systems & Equipment
AMGADS III - Fire Detection for Transit Vehicles
Gas Detection System Description
AMGADS III (Amerex Mobile Gas Detection System - 3rd Generation) gas monitoring system is a pre-engineered system designed to be utilized on any type of alternately fueled vehicle. The system can be installed by the vehicle OEM or retrofitted. Its advanced technology can detect: Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquified Natural Gas (LNG), Propane (LPG), Hydrogen and any other hydrocarbon fuel vapors.
Typical Applications for Gas Detection Systems
Light, Medium and Heavy Duty Vehicle, School Buses, Shuttle Buses, Taxi Cabs, Paratransit Vans, Transit Buses, Postal Vehicles, Delivery Vehicles, Over the Road Trucks, Waste Trucks, Fork Lifts, or any vehicle utilizing an alternate fuel.
Functional Description of Amerex Gas Detection System
AMGADS III utilizes multiple sensors for identifying misdirected gas. The system operates with both a visual and an audible alarm to warn the vehicle operator of potential danger. The system alarms at a trace level (20% LFL) and significant level (50% LFL) of gas concentration. System and sensor operation are constantly monitored and feature zoned sensing capabilities. In addition, AMGADS III features an optional internal relay for automatic control of auxiliary devices (i.e. engine shutdown, fuel valve shutoff, auxiliary alarm, etc.)
- Multi Level Alarms
- Engine Shut Down / Remote Alarm Capability
- Low Power Consumption
- Ease of Installation (Modular)
- Rugged Construction
- Solid State Sensors
- No Calibration
- Self-Test Circuitry
- Low Maintenance
System Design: Amerex Two Zone Gas Detection System
The AMGADS II vapor monitoring system utilizes advance technology for detection of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquified Natural Gas (LNG), Propane (LPG), Hydrogen and any other hydrocarbon fuel vapors. The AMGADS II allows connection of two (2) sensors and has both visual and audible alarms at Trace and Significant gas concentration levels. Test buttons are provided for full checking of all operations. System operation and connect sensor operation are continually monitored and indicators are provided for full detection. In addition, the AMGADS II Plus has an internal relay for automatic control of auxiliary devices. Read the Owner's Manual completely before installation.
The gas sensor is the heart of any gas detection system. The sensor used in AMGADS III is 100% functionally tested and operated for an extended period before it is shipped to the customer, ensuring consistency and reliability while eliminating premature failures. Amerex goes a step further in its commitment to sensor superiority by ensuring that our sensors are resistant to most toxic chemicals that might reduce the life of other sensors during environmental exposure.
