Hydrocarbon gas detector / infrared / open path
2 - 30 m, ATEX | GD10L - IR
The GD10L - IR Open Path Gas Detector performs gas detection on path lengths of 2 m (6.5 feet) to 30 m (100 feet). It employs an IR technology which is derived from the manufacturer's point detector.
A transmitter and a receiver, which use a retro-reflector, are combined in the unit through a single housing. To decrease condensation and icing, the retro-reflector is heated. The device's IR sources are resistant to vibrations or shock, thus reducing the need for their replacement. With a misalignment tolerance feature, the alignment can be performed by one person.
The ATEXT and IEC Ex-approved device employs a solid state optics in its design which provides an enhanced coverage. It can be applied in a wide range of industrial environments, from boiler plant rooms to offshore petrochemical installations.
