Det-Tronics (Detector Electronics Corporation) has over 30 years of experience in flame and gas detection plus fire alarm and gas detection systems. They protect high hazard applications ranging from offshore oil platforms, to the B-2 bomber, to thousands of miles of gas pipelines, to token booths in New York City's subway system.

Detector Electronics is unique as they manufacture both flame and gas sensors in-house, controlling specifications to exacting requirements. Optical flame detectors incorporate the latest technologies in UV, IR, UV/IR, Dual IR, Multispectrum IR (MIR) and fibre optics. In their gas detection line, they employ technologies for catalytic, electrochemical, thin-film semiconductor and IR absorption. Flame and gas systems range from conventional to state-of-the-art, highly fault tolerant and configurable detection and releasing systems. By offering the widest range of fire and gas detection and alarm products, Det-Tronics ensures the right technology for every application.

Det-Tronics submits products to recognized third-party testing agencies around the world for verification of performance and quality. They were one of the world's first detection manufacturers to earn and retain the coveted quality approval award, the European ISO 9001. They are also the recipient of hundreds of national approvals, each certifying their product has withstood each individual agency's most rigorous performance tests.

Det-Tronics maintains one of the most sophisticated fire and gas testing facilities in the world, enabling them to fully test and evaluate products. Their dedication to providing the highest level of safety possible results in superior products, which have been tested to insure that they perform the intended function over a wide range of abnormal operating conditions.

Computerized data access systems log dozens of events at hundreds of times per second to gather the data needed to develop the best and safest detector possible. Meanwhile, as a normal course of developing a flame detector, countless tests using a full range of fuel types, fire sizes and false alarm sources are performed. Combustible gas detectors undergo similar testing against possible triggering sources, including attempts at tricking the product into false alarms.
