ODS stands for Oxygen Depletion System, and is the essential component of making a vent free fire feature safe. The ODS pilot monitors the oxygen in the room, to maintain safety. If the oxygen levels in the room drop below 18%, the ODS pilot will automatically shut the gas off. The ODS shut-off point is defined by a minimum set by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z21.11.2.
