Platinum 'Non-Ex' Certified Sensors
Single gas types for either Hydrocarbons or Carbon Dioxide.
Up to 3 measurement ranges (e.g. for Hydrocarbon types, 0-5% & 0-100% Volume Methane (CH4) with autorange option plus 0-2% Propane).
Reduced gas response time ( < 20secs ) compared with earlier versions.
Low Power (15mA) versions available.
EN 50271 / SIL1 SIRA Certified versions available.
Combines all the features of the well-proven range of Premier sensors.
Operating voltage 3 to 5 volts dc, standard nominal current = 80mA.
Wide operating temperature range of -20 to +50 deg. C as standard.
Suffix 'XTR' (-40 to +75 deg. C) versions available to special order.
Output format options - Digital, Analogue or Pellistor Replacement.
Instantly converts existing compatible pellistor-based instruments to infrared.
Sensors can be factory configured to customer specifications.
User configurable via a configuration unit available from Dynament.
Internal 'Flash' memory enables firmware updates via the configuration unit.
Industry standard size - 20mm diameter x 16.6mm high (excluding pins).
3-pin (pellistor replacement) or 5-pin versions available.
Optional replaceable, self-adhesive micro porous 14 micron filter.
Note - Infrared sensors cannot be used to detect Hydrogen gas.
These single-gas 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 gas without the requirement for any specialist knowledge.
They are 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.
The sensors are contained in a stainless steel housing fitted with a single protective stainless steel mesh. This ensures a minimum response time to gas in applications where the sensor is to be fitted within a separately certified explosion protected housing protected by a sintered flame arrestor such as a sinter.
The construction of the non-certified types provide a small cost saving compared with the certified types.
Versions are available that are fitted with software that has been SIRA certified to European Standard EN 50271:2010. The sensors can be considered for use in the design of safety functions up to and including Safety Integrity Level SIL 1 - see EN 61508.
The sensors can be used to measure either Hydrocarbon gases or Carbon Dioxide, depending upon the sensor type, within a wide range of commercial and industrial applications.
They provide up to 3 measurement ranges e.g. for Hydrocarbon types 0-5% & 0-100% Volume Methane (CH4) with an autoranging option plus the option to select between either the Methane range or a 0-2% Propane range both of which are fully temperature compensated and characterised for their respective gases. If you have a requirement for a particular non-standard range then please contact us and we will be please to assist you with your application.
The Platinum Series also includes the High Resolution Methane Sensor which provides measurement of Methane over the full range of 0 to 100% volume with a resolution of 0.01 % for 0-10% methane and 0.1% for 10-100% volume.
A separately available Configuration Unit enables users to customise certain parameters within the sensor in order to suit their particular requirements.
