Dräger PEX 3000

The transmitter Dräger PEX 3000 detects flammable gases and vapours in concentrations below their lower explosive limit (100 %LEL). It increases the explosion protection of your plant. Its catalytic bead sensor provides a long-term stable measuring signal and responds to gas within a few seconds.

Flammable Gas Detectors

  • ​Sensor: Catalytic Bead Sensor
  • Installation: with Increased Safety 
  • Interface: 4-20 mA
  • IP class: IP66
  • Special: -

Six variants of transmitters

You can choose between two measuring ranges (0 ... 100 or 0 ... 10 %LEL) and two different junction box sizes. The larger junction box provides optional horizontal or vertical cable entry. Where the application asks for the sensor to be mounted remote from the junction box then it is possible to use the remote cable assembly combined with the sensing head of type Polytron SE Ex.

Simple installation

The three core screened cable from the control system terminates within the junction box of the Dräger PEX 3000 by means of three Ex-approved spring terminals. The sensor connects to three different Ex-approved spring terminals. Ex-approved spring terminals are not selfloosening and are inherently more reliable then standard screw terminals, therefore self-loosening is no longer an issue!

One-man Calibration

Owing to the state-of-the-art design of the Dräger PEX 3000 it is possible to open the Ex e junction box in the hazardous area to perform maintenance and calibration. Using the two internal push buttons and the internal seven segment digital display you can perform many different activities including one-man calibration. No additional hardware is required, e.g. a hand held terminal.

Explosion Protection

The Dräger PEX 3000 is approved according to the EU-Directive 2014/34/EU to be operated at ambient temperatures ranging from -40 up to +65 °C. This applies to both explosive gas atmospheres and explosive dust atmospheres (Zones 1, 2, 21, and 22).

Low gas concentrations

For applications where it is necessary to detect low concentrations then the transmitters Dräger PEX 3000 type XTR 0010 or XTR 0011 with their special low-drift LC sensor are very suitable. These transmitters reliably detect gas leaks of concentrations up to 10 %LEL.

The catalytic bead sensor

The DQ sensor is based on the well-known catalytic bead technology from Dräger and is designed and manufactured by Dräger for long term stability and resistance against sensor poisons. Furthermore, the DQ sensor uses an innovative non-sintered disc gas inlet therefore the reaction time towards the target gas in now only a few seconds. This fast speed of detection allows for countermeasures to be initiated earlier, therefore guarding against the formation of an explosive atmosphere.
