Dräger Polytron® 5700 IR

The Dräger Polytron® 5700 IR is a cost effective explosion proof transmitter for the detection of flammable gases in the lower explosion limit (LEL). It uses a high performance infrared Dräger PIR 7000 sensor, which will quickly detect most common hydrocarbon gases. A 3 wire 4 to 20 mA analog output with optional relays makes it compatible with most control systems.

Flamable Gas Detector

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

Efficient, stable and robust – the Dräger PIR 7000

​The Dräger PIR 7000 is efficient, stable and robust. With its stainless steel SS 316L enclosure and drift-free optics, the Dräger PIR 7000 is built to withstand the harshest industrial environments, offshore installations for example. The unique double compensated 4 beam measuring system makes the sensor resistant to dust or dirt deposits on the optical surfaces, environmental or ageing effects and long term drift.

Choose a target gas with the smart gas library

​Polytron 5700 offers a gas library with up to 100 gases providing a high degree of application flexibility. Each of the listed gases can be picked from a menu and automatically cross-calibrated with a standard calibration gas such as methane or propane. The measuring range can be freely adjusted between 0 – 350 ppm and 0 – 100 % LEL enabling a wide variety of applications. No need to consult the factory when applications change.

Same design, same operating principle

​The Dräger Polytron 5700 belongs to the 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 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 5700 is operated by means of a magnetic wand over contact surfaces.

Three relays for controlling external equipment

​Upon request, the Dräger Polytron 5700 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 5700 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. The included splash guard features a chimney effect that actively draws ambient air inside enabling gases to be detected in under 10 seconds.

Make the impossible possible with the remote sensor

​A remote explosion proof junction allows installation of the sensor up to 100' away from the transmitter in difficult to access areas. A convenient flow cell allows for remote bump testing or calibration from the Polytron display by using permanently attached tubing that takes the calibration gas to the sensor.
