New Gas Detection Transmitter for Monitoring Flammable Gases

Jan 11 2008

Honeywell (UK) recently announced the launch of the Sensepoint RFD (Remote Flammable Detector). The Sensepoint range of gas transmitters can be used for the detection of flammable gases and is certified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres to International standards. Sensepoint RFD allows flammable gas sensors to be mounted either directly to or remotely from the transmitter with an integral gas concentration display, up to 45m/147 feet away. This versatility is essential for applications where the sensor is mounted in locations where the transmitter would not be visible to plant personnel. Typical applications would include the exhaust ventilation from gas turbine acoustic enclosures and the dryers of solvent-based drying machines.
The Sensepoint RFD transmitter can be configured to monitor flammable gases with a detection range of 0-20% or 0-100% LEL/LFL. The output from the transmitter is compatible with Honeywell Analytics or third party controllers via a 3 wire linear 4-20mA output. On-board relays permit switching of local alarm functions.
The Sensepoint RFD is ATEX and UL certified for use with the Sensepoint or 705 standard or high temperature range of flammable gas sensors.
Its intrinsically safe infrared controller permits configuration and calibration without the need to open the controller or obtain a hot work permit.
