MINNEAPOLIS, July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Detector Electronics Corporation ( "Det-Tronics"), the global leader in fire and gas safety systems, introduced its revolutionary FlexSonic™ Acoustic Gas Leak Detector today.

Designed to withstand the harshest environments, from arctic to tropical conditions, the FlexSonic detector is "a revolutionary step forward over traditional gas leak detectors," said Jerry Slocum, managing director, Det-Tronics. "The FlexSonic™ detector is the first non-contact gas leak detector of its kind that recognizes unique ultrasound 'fingerprints,'" he said.

The FlexSonic™ detector analyzes 24 discrete ultrasonic bands, ignoring nuisance ultrasonic sources.  A high-fidelity microphone continuously monitors for the distinct ultrasound emitted by pressurized gas leaks across the widest spectrum of frequencies.

Unlike traditional non-contact gas leak detectors, the FlexSonic™ detector can be programmed to ignore background noises, discerning between gas leaks and environmental noises, such as metal-on-metal contact, fans, machinery or vehicles. For noisy applications, the FlexSonic™ detector learns both regularly occurring and random sounds, detecting the actual acoustic gas leak 'signature.'

"This next-generation technology improves gas leak detection capabilities by recognizing real leaks and reducing false positives," said Michael Bragg, product group manager, Det-Tronics. "For potentially hazardous locations, the FlexSonic detector offers an additional layer of protection that complements traditional gas leak detectors."
