Dräger Polytron® 5100 EC

The Dräger Polytron® 5100 EC is a cost-effective explosion proof transmitter for the detection of toxic gases or oxygen. It uses a high performance plug and play electrochemical DrägerSensor® to detect a specific gas. A 2 or 3 wire 4-to-20 mA output with relays make it compatible with most control systems.

Toxic Gases and Oxygen Detector

  • Sensor: Electrochemical Sensor
  • Installation: with Increased Safety or flameproof
  • Interface: 4-20 mA, Relays
  • IP class: IP 65/66/67
  • Special: displays 

Durable, intelligent and sensitive – the DrägerSensor®

​With unique electrochemical DrägerSensors, Polytron 5100 can detect over 100 toxic gases and oxygen. These long life sensors provide continuous detection even under the harshest conditions. DrägerSensors offer the industry’s widest temperature range between -40°C to +65°C (-40°F to +150°F). The built-in memory contains all calibration and configuration information. Therefore the sensor ships pre calibrated, ready for immediate operation. The intrinsically safe connection of the sensor eliminates the need for a flame arrestor giving you faster response times and higher sensitivity.

Same design, same operating principle

Polytron 5100 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 5100 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 5100 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.

Remote sensor option does not require conduit

​The optional remote sensor enclosure enables the sensor to be installed away from the transmitter. This makes it easy to place the sensor close to a potential gas cloud in an inaccessible location while keeping the display at eye level. Because the sensor is connected to the transmitter through an intrinsically safe port, you don’t need to run conduit for mounting a remote sensor. And to make things even easier, Dräger includes cabling up to 100 feet (30 meters) long. The intrinsically safe connection also allows ‘hot swaps’ of the sensor in a hazardous atmosphere without removing power or declassifying the area.
