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. A protection type “e” version includes a convenient docking station which allows installation in hazardous atmospheres without running conduit (where approved) and this also facilitates pre-assembly.
The remote sensor connection housing allows you to install the sensor separately from the transmitter. This allows you to simply place the sensor closer to the gas cloud in hard-to-reach locations. The display remains visible at eye level. Since the sensor is connected via an intrinsically safe connection, no conduit cabling is required. The connection also allows 'hot replacement' of the sensor in the hazardous area.
The Polytron 8720 has a data logger, which records measuring and event data from the past years.
Polytron 8720 IR Product Information, en
The Dräger Polytron® 8720 IR is an advanced explosion proof transmitter for the detection of carbon dioxide in percent volume or ppm. It uses a high performance infrared Dräger PIR 7200 sensor, which can be submerged in water without damage. Besides a 3 wire 4 to 20 mA analogue output with relays, it also offers HART®, Modbus and Fieldbus making it compatible with most control systems.
