What do Gas Monitors Do?
Gas monitors have two tasks:
1. To detect the gas or vapor being monitored.
There is no perfect gas monitor. As with most engineered products, the end result is based on a series of intelligent compromises that allow the manufacturer to achieve his most important design goals with the minimum sacrifice in secondary design objectives. Different manufacturers have found methods to amplify the strengths of their preferred technology and minimize the disadvantages.
2. To give an alarm
Gas monitors are not analytical instruments and they are not process control instruments.
Their purpose is to warn of a hazardous condition so that action can be
taken to prevent personal injury or property damage.

Most popular gas monitors are point monitors.
They are only capable of measuring the concentration of a gas
at a single point in space.
Selecting the proper location for a sensor is the single
most important element in the application of a gas monitor.
