UAV detectors advantages
Always at hand
Launching a drone with a methane detector installed on it does not require long preparation. The simplest LMC modifications can be prepared for launch in seven minutes. This allows for unscheduled and emergency inspections.
No extra costs
LMC detectors allow inspection of small gas transmission or gas distribution facilities independently, without the involvement of third-party specialists from service companies.
Any tasks
The choice from 5 models of detectors of this series allows selecting the most suitable option for solving a specific problem in the field of methane leak detection: from local daily checks to inspection of gas pipelines.

Honest answers to important questions
Can a methane detector detect other gases?
No, each device is designed to detect a specific gas. This provides a 100% probability of leak detection of methane and not any other gas.
Is laser radiation hazardous to the eyes?
Laser radiation is completely safe, it corresponds to class 1.
Does the remote laser detector work at night, in rain, fog and snowfall?
Yes. It is an active device, it emits at a certain narrow wavelength, so it does not need additional signal sources.
Do I need to calibrate detectors before commissioning?
No. The detector contains a reference container with methane inside and calibration is performed at each start-up and during operation.
How often do detectors need to be verified?
The detector does not need to be verified because it is not a measuring tool.
Why is a laser detector better than a common sniffer?
It works remotely. There is no direct contact with the hazardous environment.
Can the detector detect methane through glass?
Yes, because glass transmits the near infrared radiation well.
Is the UAV included in the complex delivery set?
Our company specializes in methane detectors, but at your request we can supply a fully ready-to-use complex. Due to our partnership with UAV manufacturers, we can fully integrate the detector into the UAV design.
