Gas Detection Device for Remote Monitoring of Toxic Gases and Oxygen

Dec 22 2010

Honeywell Analytics' (UK) Sensepoint XCD RTD (Remote Toxic Detector); device can help businesses reduce the ongoing cost of gas detection whilst increasing on-site safety. Sensepoint XCD RTD is able to do this by providing a common transmitter platform that supports a wide range of toxic gas hazards and Oxygen; this means that common tools and common mounting arrangements can be used on-site, helping to reduce the cost of installation and training required.

The device also helps to keep sites safe by providing enhanced, easily accessible visual cues;
Searchpoint XCD RTD’s unique, fully illuminated tri-colour LCD shows the status at a glance – even from a distance. This benefits the user by making devices requiring attention easier to find on-site. Sensepoint XCD RTD is designed to offer excellent flexibility of use and is an ideal solution for hard-to-reach locations or areas where the transmitter needs to be separate from the sensor. With remote sensor mounting of up to 30 metres / 100 feet away from the transmitter, Sensepoint XCD RTD provides a robust monitoring solution even in challenging environments where detection is difficult.

Sensepoint XCD RTD helps keep sites safe with enhanced, easily accessible visual cues. The device’s unique, fully illuminated tri-colour LCD shows the transmitter’s status – normal, warning/fault or alarm – at a glance, even from a distance. A steady green backlight indicates normal operation, flashing yellow indicates warning/fault and flashing red indicates an alarm. This benefits the user by making devices requiring attention easier to find on-site. This detector simplifies set up and configuration with its LCD and non-intrusive magnetic switches, which helps reduce the ongoing cost of gas detection.

Sensepoint also minimises false alarms through an auto-inhibit of outputs when the device is being adjusted, preventing unnecessary false alarms at the control panel. This enables an engineer to make changes to the device in the field without requiring a second operator at the control panel to manually inhibit the device.

This detector Monitors a wide range of toxic gases including Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Ammonia (NH3), Chlorine (Cl2), Oxygen (O2), Hydrogen (H2), Sulphur Dioxide (SO2), Nitric Oxide (NO) and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2). Sensepoint XCD RTD is certified for use in hazardous areas by ATEX (European) and IECEx (International). Other Asian approvals are also available.
