Dräger Polytron® 5000

The microprocessor-based transmitter can be equipped with various electrochemical DrägerSensors. This way, you can detect oxygen and various toxic gases in ambient air – reliably, quickly and cost-effectively, as the Polytron 5000 is the result of more than 40 years of experience in measurement technology.

Service & Support

Proven – and still getting better: Dräger Measurement Technology

​Dräger has been developing and manufacturing sensors and gas detectors for industrial use for more than 40 years. And with each new device generation, we drive our measurement technology a bit further. With the Polytron 5000, you will definitely benefit from this experience and power of innovation:

  • durable sensors
  • short response times
  • high sensitivity
  • high accuracy
  • low sensitivity to other gases or changing ambient conditions

Quick and easy wiring

​The electronics and the bezel form a single unit. Simply pull them out of the housing. Then insert the two-wire cable into the terminals. Finally plug the terminal block into the PCB.

Further advantages

  • ​Aluminum or 316 L stainless steel housing for the most extreme industrial conditions
  • Extremely user-friendly software thanks to a minimum number of menu items

Optional: Two mounting sets for easy flange-mounting

​The housing has four mounting holes. Two different mounting sets are available for installing the Polytron 5000: a duct-mount and a pipe mount set. This means that the transmitter can be easily installed anywhere – e.g., on a smooth wall, a pipe or an exhaust duct.

Easy and cost-effective: Single-operator calibration

​The transmitter settings can be changed and maintenance carried out without opening the housing. Declassification of the hazardous, classified area is not necessary. Use the magnetic wand to quickly and easily select menu items and functions. An additional hand held terminal is not required. The sensor contains an integrated database where all important information is stored. This enables you to use pre-calibrated sensors.
