The BM25 and BM25 wireless area gas monitor from Tyco Gas & Flame Detection have been approved per governmental regulation n°179-2010, and received certification N°15.0200 X.

Tyco’s BM25 has been designed to detect one to five gases for mobile or temporary work applications, team protection, area surveillance or places where fixed detection systems are not suitable. The version allows multiple BM25 devices to communicate on the same network or to send information wirelessly to a controller.

Weighing less than 7 kilos, the BM25 is easy to transport. The design and materials of the devices’ construction meanwhile, make it resistant to harsh environments. The monitor emits an audible alarm of 103 dB over 1m and has an ultra-bright flashing signal viewable at 360°. The BM 25 Wireless version allows an alarm transfer up to 1 km line of sight with the network. The units boast 170 hours autonomy, making them suitable for long duration tasks in dangerous areas.

Tyco is made up of former IST companies Detcon, Oldham, Gas Measurement Instruments (GMI) and Simtronics, along with the gas and flame business of Scott Safety. The five companies unified under the guise of Tyco in order to provide ‘end-to-end’ gas and flame product solutions.
