The Li ion Battery Failure detector protects Li Ion battery rooms and other locations where motive and stationary batteries are present by monitoring hydrogen gas levels. Li Ion batteries emit hydrogen gas first during a runaway condition.Concentrations of 4% with air can be explosive The detector turns on the fan at 0.25%, or 135Deg F. Sparks or hot surfaces can ignite them. The hydrogen gas detector will provide a warning and facilitate dissipation of the hydrogen, by operating alarms and exhaust fans before it reaches the lower explosive limit of 4%.
In addition to protecting your property and employees, cost savings are also realized. Insurance premiums may be reduced as a result of a hydrogen gas detector installation. Electricity costs decrease as a result of controlled exhaust fan operation rather than continuous fan operation. Air conditioning and heating costs are also reduced as a result of the controlled fan operation.
Two models are available: AC or DC, Optional accessories include a steel junction box for mounting on wall or ceiling, a remote panel for eye level placement, and modular cable for connecting the remote to the detector.
Explosion Prevention Systems (NFPA 69, Chap 8) and NFPA 2 Hydrogen Technology Code compliant. They are "Nonincendive" and meet Class 1 Division 2 (NEC) Hazardous Atmosphere codes CE E x G NFPA 855
