Fixed PolyXeta2 Gas Detectors of the:
PX2-1 series with Ex db protection for Zone 1 and 2
PX2-2 series with Ex nR protection only for Zone 2
Designed for the continuous monitoring of the ambient air to detect combustible gases and vapours for use in the hazardous areas of zones 1 and/or 2 according to Directive 2014/34/EU.
Microprocessor based gas detector with 4–20 mA / RS-485 Modbus output signal, alarm and fault relays (all SIL2 certified) for monitoring the ambient air to detect combustible gases and vapours by means of a catalytic sensor element (Pellistor). Optionally, the PolyXeta®2 gas detector is also available with LC display.
The calibration of gas detectors without LC display is carried out via the calibration device STL06-PGX2 or the PC software PCE06-PGX2. Gas detectors with LC display have an integrated calibration routine that is started from the outside by a permanent magnet without opening the housing. In case of an alarm or failure the backlight of gas detectors with LC display changes from green to red.
The PolyXeta®2 gas detector PX2 is used in industrial areas like oil/gas industry, biogas plants, petrochemical industry, power plants etc. in Ex-Zone 1 (PX2-1) and/or 2 (PX2-2). The PolyXeta®2 gas detector is also suitable for commercial areas like e.g. gas transfer stations etc., and for use on ships, shipyards and offshore platforms etc.
With the 4–20 mA / RS-485 Modbus output signal the gas detector is suitable for connection to the PolyGard®2 gas controller series by MSR-Electronic, as well as to any other controllers or automation devices.
