Fast and stable – the DrägerSensor® Ex
The built-in DrägerSensor® Ex is based on the proven catalytic bead measuring principle. It has excellent long-term stability with outstanding poison resistance. And this is the reason for its durability. Due to the novel gas inlet opening, the sensor responds to gas in only a few seconds. This allows you to react immediately with countermeasures and prevent the development of a flammable atmosphere.
Easy device management via digital communication
The Dräger Polytron 8200 belongs to the Polytron 8000 series. All transmitters in this series have the same design and user interface. This allows for uniform operation with reduced training and maintenance requirements. The large graphic backlit display shows status information clearly and in an easy to use format. The measured gas concentration, selected gas type, and measuring unit are displayed during normal operation. Colored LEDs (green, yellow and red) provide additional alarm and status information.
Three relays for controlling external equipment
Upon request, the Dräger Polytron 8200 can also be supplied with three integrated relays. This enables you to use it as an independent gas detection system with two arbitrarily adjustable concentration alarms and one fault alarm. Audible alarms, signal lights or similar devices can thus be controlled locally without an additional cable between the transmitter and central controller.
Safe, robust housing for every application
Polytron 8200 features a Class I, Div. 1 rated explosion proof enclosure made from aluminium or stainless steel, making it suitable for a wide range of environmental conditions. A protection type “e” version includes a convenient docking station which allows installation in hazardous atmospheres without running conduit (where approved) and this also facilitates pre-assembly.
Make the impossible possible with the remote sensor
The remote sensor connection housing allows you to install the sensor separately from the transmitter. This allows you to simply place the sensor closer to the gas cloud in hard-to-reach locations. The display remains visible at eye level. Since the sensor is connected via an intrinsically safe connection, no conduit cabling is required. The connection also allows ‘hot replacement’ of the sensor in the hazardous area.
The Polytron 8200 has a data logger, which records measuring and event data from prior years.
