Each time it is switched on, the gas detector checks the function of the sensor. The device automatically calibrates for ambient air and temperature. In addition, the smart electronics check the calibration every 40 seconds and adjust it as needed. Thanks to the temperature control, the gas detector compensates for differences so that dangerous gases can be reliably detected even at temperatures above 25 ° C.
The TriGasAlarm for use in mobile homes – Operating conditions at a glance
The color of the housing can be used to check the operating status of the device within seconds. The entire color of the case lights up in a different hue, depending on which mode the gas detector is in.
- Flashing green = Calibration phase
- Green permanently lit = everything is OK
- Red = Alarm, a continuous warning tone sounds
Simply read the operating status of the gas alarm on the housing color!
Which gas detector for the camper? With Linnepe you have the best choice!
Linnepe is an expert in the field, being one of the first companies to develop and sell mobile home gas detection devices. Already in 1999 Linnepe presented the first anesthesia gas detector SopoAlarm – at that time a complete novelty and smiled at by many. Today, more than 15 years after its launch, Linnepe’s gas detection systems have convinced numerous campers and conquered a steadily growing fan base. Among the RVMs, Linnepe gas detectors are among the safest and most reliable systems.
The Linnepe TriGasAlarm is easy to retrofit in your motorhome or caravan. The device should be installed in a central location near the floor of the vehicle. The TriGasAlarm only needs to be connected to the 12V power supply of the on-board battery. With a modest power input of just 95 mA in stand-by, the TriGasAlarm can easily be left on at night even with the vehicle in self-sufficient mode. When switched off, the power supply is effectively interrupted.
Gas alarm with low power consumption
Even if the motorhome is self-sufficient for a long time, the TriGasAlarm is used. Thanks to its low power consumption of just 95 mA in stand-by mode, it runs reliably throughout the night during bedtime. When switched off, the power supply is interrupted, so that no power is consumed.
Optional additional sensor – for all around safety
You want even more security for quiet nights in your RV? You can connect a second sensor to the gas detector from Linnepe. This has the same strengths and functions as the sensor, which is installed in the TriGasAlarm. While the main unit, the gas detector itself, is installed near the floor, attach the additional second sensor at a height of 10 cm below the ceiling. So you are equally protected against falling and rising gases and enjoy a very high level of reliability.
Self-test and constant temperature adjustment – for accuracy without false alarms
Gas detectors work via semiconductor sensors. Their resistance depends on the ambient temperature. As the temperature in the vehicle constantly changes, the measured values on the sensor shift. As the temperature rises, the sensor becomes less sensitive. If it sinks, it becomes more sensitive. This can lead to measurement errors and false alarms. To prevent this, the gas detector from Linnepe is constantly adjusting the temperature. This ensures that the measured values remain linear relative to the temperature. The gas alarm not only initially performs a self-test when used in a mobile home, but also controls the perfect functionality of the entire system at certain time intervals.
