A simple, yet highly effective, detector of engine compartment fumes, the MB-1 also includes a 10 amp 12V DC relay switch that can automatically turn on your bilge blower fan when fumes are detected.
In addition to gasoline fumes, the MB-1 will detect unburned hydrocarbons resulting from faulty exhaust systems, as well as hydrogen vapors emitted when batteries are overcharged.
Unlike competitive products, the Xintex fume sensor is splash-proof - allowing for mounting it right in the bilge, where gasoline vapors collect. It has a proprietary coating which is resistant to incidental water splashes, but allows vapors to pass.
Although the MS-2 Sensor used in these systems can also detect propane & CNG vapors, the components of the M-series Detector Panel are geared toward gasoline. For the specialized fume detection requirements of propane & CNG heating and cooking systems, please refer to the Xintex S-Series Propane Detectors - see Related Products, below.
• Power On indicator lamp automatically increases in brightness during daylight and softens at night
