Efficient, stable and robust – the Dräger PIR 7000
The Dräger PIR 7000 is efficient, stable and robust. With its stainless steel SS 316L enclosure and drift-free optics, the Dräger PIR 7000 is built to withstand the harshest industrial environments, offshore installations for example. The unique double compensated 4 beam measuring system makes the sensor resistant to dust or dirt deposits on the optical surfaces, environmental or ageing effects and long term drift. In combination with the Polytron 8700 it offers a gas library with up to 100 gases providing a high degree of application flexibility. Each of the listed gases can be picked from a menu and automatically cross-calibrated with a standard calibration gas such as methane or propane. No need to consult the factory when applications change.
Easy device management via digital communication
The Dräger Polytron 8700 is equipped with digital interfaces allowing for quick and easy remote interrogation of the transmitter’s state. Integration with existing asset management systems such as PactWare is possible via DTM. In addition to the common HART® communication system, the fieldbus interfaces PROFIBUS PA, FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1, and Modbus RTU are also available.
Same design, same operating principle
Upon request, the Dräger Polytron 8700 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 8700 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 8700 has a data logger, which records measuring and event data from the past years.
