Every detector should be ready for a second career

Jan 24, 2018

Is it necessary with one detector type for each smoke and heat category in the Oil & Gas sector? Some years ago we decided to challenge the ordinary. The result is the UNI-detector – the world’s first detector you can program for different fire detection tasks. Time and time again.

One is enough
Platform-based thinking is nothing new. Just take a look at the automotive industry, where one frame can form the basis for many types of cars. The UNI-detector is inspired by this way of thinking. The hardware stays the same, but the software is interchangeable.

Having a programmable detector gives you many benefits. You don’t need to spend time on finding one detector for each task. You can reduce stocking of spare parts to a minimum. And you speed up the installation time as all detectors are identical. 

Just program the UNI-detector to detect what you want it to. That’s all.  

Works all the way
The flexible design of the UNI-detector is part of Consilium’s approach to developing flexible systems. Our Consilium Common Platform (CCP) is modular-based, giving you the freedom to build a fire detection system for any oil and gas facility. You can design a system with different safety levels (up to SIL 2) and implement it in steps. The UNI-detector is available for non-explosive and explosive environments.
