 DETECTOR ELECTRONICS ACQUIRES ADVANCED OPEN PATH
 BEAM DETECTION TECHNOLOGY
 MINNEAPOLIS, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Detector Electronics Corporation (Det-Tronics), a world leader in hazard protection, announced that it has acquired the Wright and Wright PathWatch(TM) open path IR beam gas detector and all associated technology.
 The PathWatch is ideal for use in hydrocarbon vapor leak applications such as offshore oil platforms, petrochemical facilities, pump rows, heat exchangers, loading areas and tank farm perimeters.
 "The immediate goal of Det-Tronics is to provide continuity and support to customers who already have PathWatch detectors," Det-Tronics President Ross Colwill said. "This acquisition reflects the depth of our commitment to be the industry leader."
 The PathWatch active approach to leak detection allows for a degree of sensitivity that is significantly greater than other beam detectors, making it suitable for meeting the stringent new United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safety program rules.
 PathWatch can also detect two different vapors at the same time -- the only beam detector in its class to have this ability.
 A large number of PathWatch detectors are in use around the world in a variety of applications, featuring high sensitivity with resistance to false alarms.
 The PathWatch complements Det-Tronics' gas detection line. Det- Tronics manufactures sophisticated microprocessor-based point-type systems that have more features and options than any system in the industry.
 Please contact Det-Tronics for more information about the PathWatch open path IR beam detector, or other products in the Det-Tronics gas detection line: Linda Stahle, Product Specialist, or Martin Seabolt, Director of Marketing, Detector Electronics Corporation, 6901 West 110th Street, Minneapolis, Minn., 55438. Det-Tronics is a member of the Fire Safety International Division of Williams Holdings PLC.
