Innovative area monitoring
The Dräger X-zone 5000 transforms the Dräger personal gas
detection instruments X-am 5000 into innovative area monitoring devices
for a wide range of applications. A patented combination for increased
safety and reduced cost – used in combination with personal air monitors
or independently, these area monitors are positioned where gas hazards
are likely to occur.
Wireless fence line
Up to 25 Dräger X-zone 5000 can be automatically
interconnected to form a wireless fence line. This interconnection of
area monitoring devices allows for rapid deployment even in larger
areas. In the event of a gas alarm, the Dräger X-zone 5000 transmits the
alarm signal to all units that are part of the fence line to sound a
daughter alarm. The unit initiating the alarm flashes red, while the
daughter alarm displayed green/red by the illuminated LED ring, thus
allowing fast and easy recognition of the general as well as the
original alarm-triggering device.
Alarm contact to connect to external equipment
Via the potential-free alarm contact, the Dräger X-zone 5000
device can connect to and operate external equipment such as alarm
horns, lamps or traffic lights. In addition, the fence line signal from
the alarm contact can be forwarded to a control room – overseeing a wide
range of applications.
Continuous operation for up to 120 hours
The x-zone offers battery options for up to 120 hours of run time. This allows continuous monitoring to help minimize new atmospheric checks of the atmosphere for each shift change or break for increased productivity.
Piercing audible and attention getting visual alarms – 360°
Even from a distance, the illuminated green LED ring indicates
that the air is clean. Upon detection of gas hazards, the LED color
changes from green to red, thus providing a clear visual warning that
gas is present. Additionally, a loud and highly audible alarm is
emitted. The Dräger X-zone 5000 gas entry is designed so that gas can
diffuse into the Dräger X-zone 5000 from all sides, providing optimum
Area monitoring via diffusion or with a sampling pump
An optional integrated pump allows for continuous monitoring
of difficult to access areas during operation. This provides continuous
monitoring of confined spaces and locations for improved safety – from a
distance of up to 45 m (150 ft.).
Available for use in Ex-zone 0
Area monitoring devices provide their best productivity and protection when they are located within an explosion hazard area, even
during a gas alarm. Therefore, it is important that the devices are approved for use in even the most dangerous explosion hazard areas, especially zone 0. The approvals for X-zone 5000 enable the continuous operation of the device in an explosive atmosphere and environment.
