Getting Smarter: Becker Mining Systems Introduces the smartsense® Single Gas Monitoring Solution

The new Single Gas Monitor is a part of Becker Mining System’s smartsense® line of products; a line of highly accurate gas monitoring suite of solutions for every day mine operations dedicated to mitigating the dangers of harmful gases.

The customisable gas monitor comes to the market with a fresh and modular design to simplify gas sensor interchangeability as they are engineered to be hot swappable and easy to calibrate. The smartsense Single Gas monitor (SSSG-100) can stack up to six different gas sensors and Fully programmable set points for alarm and output controls, along with short term exposure limit and time-weighted average limits for sensor modules, can be configured and viewed through RS-485 Modbus.

“Health & safety initiatives and operational efficiency programs are increasing across all aspects of daily mine operations,” said Shivan Singh, engineering manager at Becker Varis, the Canadian division of Becker Mining. “By integrating a device like the SSSG-100 with an existing communications network, such as a leaky feeder system, you can automate your gas sensor reading to your SCADA package. It’s health and safety made easy for clients.”

The intrinsically safe designed SSSG-100 can be customised with six different gas sensor modules, an alarm and can be purchased with or without the LCD display. Gas sensors attached to the monitor can be programmed to read one of 20 different gases, including CO, CO₂, NO₂, etc. It is currently available for purchase at Becker Varis.
