Product Line


Det-Tronics product and solutions include flame detectors, combustible gas detectors, toxic gas detectors and explosion-proof smoke detectors, as well as an addressable safety controller that is compliant to NFPA 72 and certified for annunciation and releasing. Optical flame detectors incorporate the latest technologies in UV, IR, UV/IR, Dual IR and Multispectrum IR to maximize detection while minimizing false alarms.

Combustible and toxic gas detectors protect staff and facilities from these dangerous gases using a variety of technologies including acoustic, infrared (point and line-of-sight), catalytic bead and electrochemical. Det-Tronics line-of-sight acoustic gas detection products are exida safety award winners.

The Eagle Quantum PremierĀ® (EQP) Fire and Gas Safety Controller is an addressable-loop, fault-tolerant safety controller, engineered further to provide redundant operational capabilities. Compliant to NFPA 72 per FM Approvals, the controller supports Det-Tronics flame and gas detectors as well as third-party devices. The controller is certified for annunciation and releasing, and it can communicate with process control and communication systems.

The EQP is hazardous-location rated by FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx, is FM performance approved and CE marked. The result is a fire- and gas-safety controller that can incorporate smoke detection, flame detection and combustible and toxic gas detection, as well as other detection technologies for high-risk applications into a single safety system.

Global Approvals


Products intended to protect hazardous industrial applications against fire and life safety hazards must be certified to ensure that they meet functional safety requirements.
