Uniphos KwikSense – The Next Generation in Fixed Systems

The deployment of fixed gas detection systems is critical in environments harbouring potential hazards, particularly in enclosed spaces with limited air circulation where flammable or toxic gases are employed, stored, or generated. From industrial complexes and scientific laboratories to bustling hotels and densely populated public buildings, these systems offer invaluable protection.

Shawcity provides a wide range of fixed-point detectors from world-leading manufacturers to ensure we have the most flexible and comprehensive offer for our customers.
One product recently added to the ever-expanding Shawcity portfolio is the KwikSense range from Uniphos.


KwikSense PRO Transmitter 501-KwikSense pro

Suitable for the detection and continuous monitoring of hazardous environments,  the ATEX and SIL certified KwikSense Pro can detect toxic, oxygen and flammable gases.

Compatible with all Uniphos smart sensors, the transmitter can detect more than 100 gases using clever interchangeable ‘plug-n-play’ sensor technology, allowing users to swap pre-calibrated sensors to suit detection requirements without the need for an engineer visit. This versatility not only simplifies maintenance but also saves time and resources, making it a cost-effective choice for businesses of all sizes.

Also available with an 11.7 PID sensor, the KwikSense Pro provides a dynamic and reliable response to VOCs across a wide range of applications.

The KwikSense Pro is designed to offer maximum flexibility and with three configurable onboard relay contacts, users can tailor the system to their specific needs. These relay contacts can trigger various actions, such as activating ventilation systems or shutting down machinery in the event of a gas leak, providing an added layer of safety.

Boasting an industry-standard 4-20 mA analog output, the unit is compatible with existing systems and easy to integrate. The inclusion of digital communication capabilities on MODBUS over RS 485 provides users with real-time data access, remote monitoring and easy configuration, streamlining the entire detection process.


KwikSense Smart Digital Transmitter KwikSense smart

The KwikSense Smart Digital is a universal transmitter which can detect a wide range of toxic and flammable gases that may be present in industrial processes.

Utilising the Uniphos industry-leading plug-n-play sensor technology, the KwikSense Smart allows for quick, pre-calibrated sensor replacements eliminating the need for field calibration.

It comes with an RS-485 MODBUS-RTU digital output signal that can be connected to any suitable control system and provides an industry-standard 4-20 mA analog output.



The Kwiksense Lite transmitter is suitable for single gas detection also utilising the Uniphos smart sensor plug-n-play technology. It is engineered for the most challenging environments, offering users a high-quality, low-cost solution for fixed gas monitoring.

Housed in an explosion-proof enclosure and ATEX and SIL certified, the transmitter can be installed in potentially explosive atmospheres, suitable for petrochemical, pharmaceutical, marine, nuclear and iron and steel manufacturing industries.
