Orders Flood in for Oxygen Monitor Following Successful Launch

Jun 28 2016 Comments 0

Servomex (UK) has seen a rush of orders for its upgraded SERVOTOUGH OxyDetect life safety oxygen monitor following a successful launch.

Now available as a hazardous or safe area version with updated communication relay options, the OxyDetect offers a highly accurate oxygen measurement without the sensor deterioration that degrades the performance of traditional electrochemical sensors used in competitor detectors.

The OxyDetect utilises the market-leading performance of Servomex’s Hummingbird Paracube Paramagnetic sensor, whose industry-leading levels of linearity, accuracy and reliability have ensured its use as a trusted oxygen sensor for the OEM medical market.

As the sensor never depletes and the measurement remains accurate, OxyDetect avoids false readings and false alarms caused by depleted cells, as well as the serious safety risk caused by life safety systems being turned off or ignored because of constant false alarms.

This gives users a considerably lower cost of lifetime ownership, with the costs associated with replacing electrochemical cells, as well as the problems of cell degradation when kept as a stock item, eliminated. 

With an output range of 0-25% O2, OxyDetect can be used for indoor environments ranging from 5°C-45°C. Integration is simple using an isolated 4–20mA output with linear measurement, and mains-rated relay outputs for instrument fault, low alarm one and low alarm two. An optional Ethernet output is also available.

Potential customers have responded well to a video showcasing all the advantages of the Oxydetect, available to view at

Matthew Halsey, Product Manager - Process Oxygen, Zirconia and Oxygen Deficiency at Servomex, said: “The OxyDetect is both reliable and easy to use. You can just switch it on and be confident that it will keep on working, making sure your people and plant are safe.”

“It has a measurement performance you can trust, while reducing ongoing maintenance and replacement costs.”
