Autronica Fire & Security AS, Oil & Gas is a leading innovator, manufacturer and supplier of advanced sensors and systems for fire and gas detection to the petrochemical oil and gas industry. The product range includes AutroSafe® IFG (integrated fire and gas detection system) with SelfVerify® the world's only IEC 61508 safety integrity level (SIL 2) approved integrated addressable fire and gas detection system.


Autronica also offers a full range of flame and gas detectors, high sensitive smoke detection (HSSD), gas sampling, alarm management and control systems. Service offered includes system design, project management, installation and commissioning, after sales service and training.


AutroSafe SelfVerify


SelfVerify detectors perform a calibrated self-test every day, making time consuming manual testing an activity of the past. AutroSafe SelfVerify avoids these problems by doing the job itself. This breakthrough technology has been developed with the support of the Research Council of Norway and from three major oil companies BP, Total and ExxonMobil.

Not only does AutroSafe SelfVerify test whether a detector is capable of activating an alarm, it also verifies detector sensitivity with a calibrated signal, ensuring that each detector always responds to the correct alarm level. In the event of any irregularities, the operating panel display pinpoints the problem source clearly and concisely. With this new technology, AutroSafe is the most reliable fire and gas detection system on the market - a system that ensures optimal detection 24 hours a day.


From safe to dual safety


The new dual safety technology from Autronica enables redundant control of the loop. If, by any reason, the primary loop control fails, the secondary loop control will take over, and fire detection is thus maintained. Redundancy is achieved without introducing two set of detection loops and thus avoiding twice the amount of cabling and detectors.

Gas sampling in shale shaker ventilation


In the drilling area on an oil rig the main concern is hydrocarbon leakage from the well. Normally, traditional IR gas detectors are chosen to detect these leakages, for lack of options. In such contaminated environments the risk of detector pollution is not a question of if, it is a question of when, as traditional IR detectors need to be placed in close proximity to the source to work at optimum performance.


With the new Omicron gas sampling system from Autronica we have developed a method for gas detection where we are especially focused on making the equipment operate with a high degree of reliability without supervision.

Detector Electronics Corporation (Det-Tronics) is a global leader in industrial hazard safety solutions, providing flame detection, gas detection, and hazard mitigation systems for critical industrial applications. We design, build, test, and commission SIL 2 flame and gas safety systems that range from conventional panels to fault-tolerant, addressable systems. Our flame and gas detectors are globally certified to the latest product approval standards.



Below you will find a small example of our Fire & Gas equipment:



Autronica Fire & Security has developed the world’s first interactive-addressable system for integrated fire and gas detection: AutroSafe Integrated Fire and Gas Detection System (IFG), the only integrated fire and gas detection system that is approved according to IEC 61508 Safety Integrity Level 2 (SIL2).


AutroSafe IFG has been developed in close collaboration with the petrochemical, oil and gas industry. AutroSafe IFG is designed to comply with present and future standards, including EN 54, and is approved by many international standards organizations.

AutroSafe - large and complex installations

Autronica Fire & Security offers a totally distributed system that literally takes its own pulse: the AutroSafe Interactive Fire Detection System, including the unique technology; AutroSafe SelfVerify.

AutroSafe 4 operates on a high-speed and fully redundant Ethernet-based network solution; AutroNet, providing extremely fast data transmission. A maximum of 64 system units (panels, controllers) can be connected to theAutroNet.The system has a great capacity, and the fact that all types of loop units can be connected to the same detection loop gives large flexibility.

The comprehensive range of interactive low-profile detectors revolutionizes modern sensor technology and is the striking proof of our technical leadership in this field.

Eagle Quantum Premier® (EQP) System

Configurable and flexible, the Det-Tronics EQP safety system provides flame and/or gas detection, alarm signaling, notification, extinguishing agent release, and/or deluge operation. All system components are integrated on a fault-tolerant digital communication network.
