- The sensor transmitters can be used in both indoor and outdoor conditions and are designed to interface with RKI controllers or PLC/DCS systems.
- The sensors are available in explosion proof casing for monitoring LEL, H2 specific, oxygen, H2S, CO2, and carbon monoxide
- These sensors also have flame arrestors and are approved for use in hazardous environments
- The oxygen, H2S, CO, and CO2 sensors are available in non-explosion proof models
- The sensors provide highly specific and quick detection and are long lasting
- The sensors can be quickly replaced while on the field and do not require any tools
- The explosion proof sensors use a variety of detection mechanisms including catalytic for LEL and LEL- H2 specific; metal oxide semiconductor for hydrogen; galvanic cell technology for oxygen; electrochemical for hydrogen sulfide and carbon monoxide; and infrared for carbon dioxide, methane, and hydrocarbons
- Each of these detection methods come with their own measuring range specifications and response times varying from 20 seconds to 45 seconds.
- These sensors are stainless steel and are housed in a cast aluminum explosion proof J-Box (a stainless steel J-Box is also available)
- The non-explosion proof sensors use galvanic cells for oxygen detection; electrochemical technology for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, and other toxics; and infrared technology for carbon dioxide detection
- The response times vary between 20 seconds and 60 seconds depending on the targeted gas, and the measuring ranges vary as well
- These sensors are plastic or aluminum and housed in an explosion proof J-Box
