Ready to use out of the box
PointGard is a self-contained gas detection alarm system that is easy to install and commission. Just mount it on a wall and hard wire it to an AC/DC power or plug in the optional AC power cord. Since the strobes and horn are built in, there is no need to specify and purchase separate alarm output devices. The pre-calibrated sensor is ready to use.
Detect over 100 toxic gases using DrägerSensors
Electrochemical DrägerSensors provide continuous detection even under the harshest conditions. Most DrägerSensors offer a very wide temperature range from -40 °C to +65 °C (-40 °F to +149 °F). The built-in memory contains all the information relating to calibration and configuration. The sensor is pre-calibrated and ready for immediate operation. An intelligent sensor self-test function allows for predictive maintenance.
PointGard can accommodate additional external alarm devices through its three built-in relays. In addition, a 4–20 mA signal output allows integration into a larger gas detection system.
Rugged and compact housing
PointGard’s glass fiber reinforced polyester housing is water and dust resistant with a 4X/IP66 rating. Its compact size allows it easily to fit most applications. Built-in cable glands make it easy to install.
Advanced display with diagnostics
The large, illuminated backlit graphic display shows status information clearly and in a format that’s easy to interpret. The measured gas concentration, selected gas type, and measuring unit are displayed during normal operation. Coloured LEDs (green, yellow, and red) provide additional alarm and status information. Advanced diagnostics log events and gas readings, which can be displayed and a graph created on the display.
Monitor remote areas up to 30 meters away
A remote sensor enclosure with a cable up to 30 meters long, designed for use in ordinary locations, is available for electrochemical sensors.
