Dräger Polytron® 6100 EC WL

The Dräger Polytron 6100 EC WL is a wireless transmitter for continuous monitoring of toxic gases and oxygen. The instrinsically safe, SIL2-rated transmitter features completely wireless signal transmission and a power supply. The internal battery pack continuously powers the transmitter for up to 24 months. This makes the Polytron 6100 a flexible and cost efficient solution for plant expansions, upgrades, and new installations.

Toxic Gases and Oxygen Detector

  • Sensor: Electrochemical Sensor

No cable? No problem!

Is the financial, technical or timing effort of wiring a transmitter not feasible? Then the Dräger Polytron 6100 EC WL is the ideal complement to your fixed gas detection system. It's ideal for situations where cabling would be uneconomical or impractical, where the measuring point needs to be moved frequently, or where it's far from the existing infrastructure. Wireless detection reduces your installation effort, while retaining the same safety levels provided by a wired transmitter. The Polytron 6100 EC WL is designed to meet SIL2 requirements for measurement technology.

Measures and transmits data wirelessly

The industrial wireless standard ISA100.11a ensures safe transmission of measurements. Together with the PROFIsafe protocol, the Polytron 6100 EC WL guarantees the SIL2 capability of your system. It uses DrägerSensors®, which are proven and optimized for industrial applications and can detect 140 different hazardous gases.

Easy to install, easy to use

The PolySoft software solution allows you to conveniently access the Polytron 6100 EC WL via a Bluetooth® interface on an explosion-protected tablet, laptop or desktop PC. The transmitter's data and event log can be easily recorded and assessed for monitoring and audit purposes. You can use the Dräger Polytron 8100 EC accessories with the device – from pipe mounting sets to weather protection. As a result, there are countless mounting and application possibilities. The integrated LEDs, which are visible from a great distance, indicate the battery life, disturbance, alarm and Bluetooth® interface – so you can determine the status of the device at any time.

Cost-effective in maintenance

The intrinsically safe design of the wireless gas detection transmitter lets you perform maintenance, such as changing the batteries or sensors, in the hazardous area. You do not need to take any additional measures, such as declassifying the area – therefore saving time and allowing all maintenance work to be completed safely. The pre-calibrated DrägerSensors ensure quick commissioning and can detect a broad range of measurable gases and vapors.

External power supply

With the Polytron 6100 EC WL, you can also cover application scenarios in long-term operation without batteries. The 24-volt wireless transmitter is provided to do just this – directly in the safe area and in using a suitable supply isolator the hazardous area, while still transmitting the measurement signal to the control unit wirelessly.

Greater distances and alternative paths of communication

With the Polytron 6100 EC WL transmitter, you can transmit data for distances up to 1640 ft. The transmitter’s repeater function enables the transmission of radio signals, creating a bridge over greater distances with additional wireless transmitters or enable alternative paths of communication (redundancies). If you don't require any additional gas measuring points in your application, you can use the Polytron Repeater ISA. The operation and installation of this device are identical to the Polytron 6100 EC WL.
