The Xintex Methane Gas Detector is designed to be is incorporated into vehicles using compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG).

As methane is a potentially life-threatening and explosive constituent of natural gas, the detector is designed to constantly monitor the methane level and will activate visual and audible alarms when the level reaches a set point. The in-cab indicator panel incorporates multi-colored LED’s (green, yellow and red) to indicate functionality, operational status and danger, as well as a test function button and reset button.
