Hydrocarbon Gas Sensors

There are two different series of infrared (IR) sensor - each series being available with or without hazardous area certification:-

  1. Premier Sensor Series - which provide a linearized, temperature compensated output.
  2. Standard Sensor Series - which provide a 'raw' signal output.

Please refer to the tables below which summarise the types that are available.

Premier Series

Certified Types Non-Certified Types

Temperature Compensated
- 20 to +50 deg. C

These sensors contain all the necessary optics, electronics and firmware to provide a linearized, temperature compensated output. The sensors provide equipment designers with a fast track route to introduce the latest infrared technology for detection of gases without the requirement for any specialist knowledge.

Standard Series

Certified Types Non-Certified Types

Standard infrared gas sensors provide a 'raw' signal output which needs to be be fed into external processing electronics and software. This may either be provided by the equipment manufacturer or by use of a purpose-designed OEM board available from Dynament Ltd.

Certified Infrared Sensor Non-Certified Infrared Sensor

Certified types are hazardous area certified components that are intended for use directly within hazardous area certified portable or fixed gas detection equipment provided that their use is permitted by the equipment manufacturer's certification documents.

Non-certified types are intended for use either in non-certified gas detection equipment or in hazardous area certified equipment where the equipment manufacturer provides the necessary protection by means of a separately certified explosion protected housing.
