Don’t ignore the hidden costs of gas detection. Gas detection is often viewed as a necessary capital expense. However, the long term operational costs such as labor and calibration gas shouldn’t be overlooked.
MSA's breakthrough TruCal is a patented extended calibration technology that corrects sensor drift and extends calibration periods for XCell Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and Carbon Monoxide (CO) gas sensors using Adaptive Environmental Compensation (AEC) algorithms.

Diffusion Supervision–Active Technology
Not only does TruCal compensate for environmental changes, it will let you know if the sensor inlet gets blocked using Diffusion Supervision technology. Diffusion Supervision employs proprietary acoustic mechanical design and algorithms to measure sound across the sensor's inlet. If the inlet is blocked with a material, like ice, the difference in the sound is detected and the unit is put into fault. When the obstruction is removed, Diffusion Supervision detects the clearance and returns to normal.
You'll achieve greater peace of mind knowing that TruCal's self-checking technology will let you know if gas can't reach the sensor. No more surprises when you go to calibrate the sensor only to find that it's been blocked for an unknown period of time. TruCal proactively self-checks every six hours!
