Dräger Polytron® 8200 CAT
- Sensor: Catalytic bead sensor
- Installation: Increased Safety or flameproof
- Interface: 4-20 mA, Relays, Bus, HART ®
- IP class: IP65/66/67 and SIL2
- Special: Display
The built-in DrägerSensor® Ex is based on the proven catalytic bead measuring principle. It has excellent long-term stability with outstanding poison resistance. And this is the reason for its durability. Due to the novel gas inlet opening, the sensor responds to gas in only a few seconds. This allows you to react immediately with countermeasures and prevent the development of a flammable atmosphere.
The Dräger Polytron 8200 belongs to the Polytron 8000 series. All transmitters in this series have the same design and user interface. This allows for uniform operation with reduced training and maintenance requirements. The large graphic backlit display shows status information clearly and in an easy to use format. The measured gas concentration, selected gas type, and measuring unit are displayed during normal operation. Colored LEDs (green, yellow and red) provide additional alarm and status information.
The Polytron 8200 is operated by means of a magnetic wand over contact surfaces.
Upon request, the Dräger Polytron 8200 can also be supplied with three integrated relays. This enables you to use it as an independent gas detection system with two arbitrarily adjustable concentration alarms and one fault alarm. Audible alarms, signal lights or similar devices can thus be controlled locally without an additional cable between the transmitter and central controller.
Polytron 8200 features a Class I, Div. 1 rated explosion proof enclosure made from aluminium or stainless steel, making it suitable for a wide range of environmental conditions. A protection type “e” version includes a convenient docking station which allows installation in hazardous atmospheres without running conduit (where approved) and this also facilitates pre-assembly.
The remote sensor connection housing allows you to install the sensor separately from the transmitter. This allows you to simply place the sensor closer to the gas cloud in hard-to-reach locations. The display remains visible at eye level. Since the sensor is connected via an intrinsically safe connection, no conduit cabling is required. The connection also allows 'hot replacement' of the sensor in the hazardous area.
The Polytron 8200 has a data logger, which records measuring and event data from prior years.
Polytron 8200 CAT Product Information, en
The Dräger Polytron® 8200 CAT is an advanced explosion-proof transmitter for the detection of flammable gases in the lower explosion limit (LEL). It uses a catalytic bead DrägerSensor® Ex that will detect most flammable gases and vapours. In addition to a 3-wire 4 to 20-mA analogue output with relays it also offers HART®, Modbus and Fieldbus protocols, making it compatible with most control systems.

Detecting flammable gases and vapours before they become a hazard takes priority over mechanical and electrical explosion-protection measures.
