Described as rugged and easy to install, it can be connected to any control system which accepts analogue signals. Together with Crowcon’s Gasmaster control panel and Xgard toxic gas detector, the F-Gas detector is said to provide an effective gas leak detection package.
The detector operates from 24Vdc nominally and provides a 4-20mA signal (the output can also be set to 0-20mA, 0-2V, 0-5V or 0-10Vdc). It is compatible with most control systems or 4-20mA type controllers. Housed in a rugged IP54 enclosure, the detector is suitable for use in non-hazardous areas such as plant rooms or switchgear rooms. With no moving parts, very little maintenance is required – just a bi-annual gas check (with re-calibration if necessary).
The F-Gas detector is said to offer fast, stable and dependable performance with low maintenance and long life. And unlike semi-conductor type sensors, it is not affected by other types of gas or changes in temperature or humidity
Tri-coloured LEDs indicate the operating status of the detector and are used for adjustments such as zero and calibration.
