Innovative Hybrid Gas Detector

Jan 04 2012 Read 888 Times

Sensitron (Italy) has developed the innovative Hybrid gas detector, Atex and SIL2 (3) approved. In tough environments, gas detection is now available as an innovative alternative which compares the signals received from two different sensors (Pel+IR) installed in a single head setting.

The Sensitron's SMART S-IR is an innovative concept in the gas detection for the premium safety market. The detector uses a hybrid technology sensor (Pel+IR) installed in a single head. The behaviour of the sensors is constantly monitored by a microprocessors and the incoming signals are compared in order to supply an output corresponding to the worst situation revealed in the shortest time: it guarantees the highest accuracy with false alarm conditions close to zero.

Other important features of the SMART S-IR include; a non-intrusive calibration; 3 wires 4-20mA output with a further three relays output and the HART communication module (optional).

The SMART S-SS and the SMART S-MS belong to the same family. The SMART S-MS is a double-head detector and two different sensors (Pel-IR; IR-IR; Pel-Electrochemical; Electrochemical-Pel) can be installed on it. It guarantees two different independent outputs that can be compared. The detectors are SIL 2(3) certified in compliance with EN50402/EN61508.
