The IR400 Infrared (IR) Point Gas Detector delivers reliable protection against explosive hydrocarbon gases with a low power design that installs in minutes and features heated optics to eliminate condensation and includes a dirty optics indicator for fail safe operation.
The IR400 continuously monitors combustible gases in the lower explosive limit (LEL) range and provides a 4 to 20 mA analog signal proportional to the 0 to 100% LEL concentration. The detector also monitors other conditions such as supply voltage and optical path integrity.
The IR400 assists with operational efficiency and system problem-detection capability. The detector uses only 4.8 W of power and with its advanced diagnostics helps to prevent unplanned plant shutdowns. The detector requires no routine calibration, a feature that reduces demand for field technician time.
Configurations with analog output, Modbus and HART are available. Through the two-way digital communication protocols, users have access to device configuration, warning and alarm, fault and maintenance records. They can also monitor gas concentration, check status and perform real time diagnostics.
The IR400 is suitable for a wide range of hazardous industry processes and plant applications: LNG/LPG processing and storage, utilities, oil & gas, petrochemical, compressor stations, aerospace facilities, and wastewater treatment.
Approvals: CSA, FM, ATEX, IECEx, CE Marking. SIL 3 suitable, certified by FM to IEC 61508.
