Measuring Gases with a Uniform Operating Principle

Nov 12 2012

All the microprocessor-based transmitters in the Polytron 8000 series have the same design and user interface, which guarantees a uniform operating philosophy. The advantage: simplified handling, less training requirement and easier maintenance.

Dräger (Germany) has been developing and manufacturing sensors and gas detectors for industrial use for more than 40 years. This experience has been incorporated into the new Polytron 8000 series. All devices feature durable sensors, short response times, high sensitivity and high accuracy.

Five versions are available: the Polytron 8000 (ELCH), Polytron 8200 (CatEx), Polytron 8310 (DSIR) and Polytron 8700 (PIR 7000) for the detection of combustible gases and vapours and the Polytron 8720 (PIR 7200) for the measurement of carbon dioxide.

The Dräger Polysoft software and a HART interface (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) allow remote access to the transmitters for easy and quick assessment of the device status. Integration into existing management systems is also possible. Fieldbus systems such as Foundation Fieldbus or Profibus are supported by appropriate interfaces.
