For more than 60 years, GfG has been committed to protecting people, industrial facilities and the environment by developing and manufacturing gas detection systems. With an extensive range of portable gas detectors and fixed gas detection systems, GfG can supply you with a selection of products for many applications and industries. Our scope also includes on-site service and advanced training courses.


What distinguishes us from other manufacturers

We are specialists for gas detection solutions, not generalists in safety. No one can be the best at everything, but if you focus on one thing, you can achieve excellence. We work hard to provide you with the best gas detection equipment available, so you can focus on your task without having to worry about the risks that gases can pose. Because of that we invest more heavily in research and development than any other company. Approximately 13% of our annual turnover is reinvested in basic research and the development of new sensors and devices.


A “never say no” approach

This includes finding solutions for customers whose requirements are not met by “off the shelf” products. We take pride in our longstanding cooperation with the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), for example. For many years now, they have put their trust in GfG’s portable devices, which we optimized to adapt to the Singaporean climate and fulfill the special requirements for integration into the SCDF communication network.

Intrinsically safe operation
Due to its intrinsically safe build, the EC28 i can be used even in areas with a particularly high risk of explosion. A safety barrier (SB1 or Zener barrier; optionally available) has to be connected between the transmitter and the programmable logic controller (PLC) to convert the supply voltage to 24 V DC. This prevents the power lines from igniting within the Ex zone. The intrinsic safety of the EC28 i is ATEX-certified and makes it suitable for applications up to Ex zone 0.

Communication and Service
Communication is carried out via a 4-20 mA signal. The Smart Sensor technology enables quick and easy replacement of the sensor. Adjustments can be made using the RC2 remote control (one-man calibration).

Remote Control RC2 (optional)
Gases like ammonia and hydrogen are lighter than air. Transmitters with these sensors are therefore installed near the ceiling. To simplify servicing, these transmitters can be equipped with a permanently installed cable meaning that the RC2 remote control can be connected for maintenance work and settings can be made from ground level. The display of the RC2 remote control shows the same information as would be shown by the EC28 versions with a display. This makes inspection, maintenance and calibration much easier.

Reliable Measurement & Minimal Operating Costs
The sensor and built-in temperature compensation ensure the highest measuring accuracy. The long sensor service life and low maintenance requirements ensure minimal operating costs.
