Dräger Polytron® 5310 IR

The Dräger Polytron® 5310 IR is a cost effective explosion proof transmitter for the detection of flammable gases in the lower explosion limit (LEL). It uses an infrared DrägerSensor® IR that can be configured for methane, propane, or ethylene. A 3 wire 4 to 20 mA analog output with relays makes it compatible with most control systems.

  • Special: display

Poison-resistant and fail-safe – the DrägerSensor IR

DrägerSensor IR is a cost-effective alternative to catalytic bead sensors while offering several benefits. It is poison-resistant against chemicals that can shorten a catalytic bead pellistor’s life. Long life optics result in lower maintenance costs compared to pellistors. IR technology is inherently fail-safe, meaning no unrevealed failures. These benefits provide improved performance with excellent long-term stability and fast response times.

Same design, same operating principle

Polytron 5310 belongs to the Dräger Polytron 5000 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 backlit display shows status information clearly with quick access to functions using a non-intrusive magnetic wand. The gas concentration and measurement unit are displayed during normal operation. Colored LEDs (green, yellow and red) provide additional alarm and status information.

Three relays for controlling external equipment

Upon request, the Dräger Polytron 5310 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. Audio alarms, signal lights, or similar devices can thus be controlled locally without an additional cable between the transmitter and central controller.

Safe, robust housing for every application

Polytron 5310 features a Class I, Div. 1 rated explosion proof enclosure made from aluminum 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).
