Dräger Polytron® 8720 IR
- Sensor: IR Sensor
- Installation: Increased Safety or flameproof
- Interface: 4-20 mA, Relays, Bus, HART ®
- IP class: IP65/66/67 and SIL2
- Special: Display
With its stainless steel 316L enclosure and drift free optics, the Dräger PIR 7200 is built for the harshest industrial and commercial outdoor environments. The unique 4 beam signal stabilizing system makes the sensor resistant to dust or dirt deposits on the optical surfaces. Environmental and ageing effects are compensated ensuring long term, drift free operation. The measuring range can be freely adjusted between 0 – 2,000 ppm and 0 – 30 % volume enabling a wide variety of applications.
The Dräger Polytron 8720 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.
The Dräger Polytron 8720 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 8720 is operated by means of a magnetic wand over contact surfaces.
Upon request, the Dräger Polytron 8720 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.
Polytron 8720 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. The included splash guard features a chimney effect that actively draws ambient air inside enabling gases to be detected in under 10 seconds.
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.
The Polytron 8720 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.
