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. Improved performance with excellent long-term stability and fast response times.
Easy device management via digital communication
The Dräger Polytron 8310 is equipped with digital interfaces allowing for quick and easy remote interrogation of the transmitter’s state. Integration with existing asset management systems such as PACTware™ is possible via DTM. In addition to the common HART® communication system, the fieldbus interfaces PROFIBUS® PA, FOUNDATION fieldbus™ H1, and Modbus RTU are also available.
Same design, same operating principle
The Dräger Polytron 8310 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 8310 is operated by means of a magnetic wand over contact surfaces.
Three relays for controlling external equipment
Upon request, the Dräger Polytron 8310 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.
Safe, robust housing for every application
Polytron 8310 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.
Make the impossible possible with the remote sensor
The remote sensor connection housing allows you to install the sensor separately from the device electronics. This 'external' installation makes it easier to use if the sensor has to be installed in a difficult to access or unfavorable position.
The Polytron 8310 has a data logger, which records measuring and event data from the past years. A graph function displays the history of the past 15 minutes on a time/concentration graph.
