Dräger Polytron® 5200 CAT

The Dräger Polytron® 5200 CAT is a cost-effective explosion-proof transmitter for the detection of flammable gases in the lower explosion limit (LEL). It uses a catalytic bead DrägerSensor® Ex that will detect most flammable gases and vapours. A 3-wire 4 to 20 mA analogue output with relays makes it compatible with most control systems.

Flammable Gas Detectors

  • ​Sensor: Catalytic bead sensor
  • Installation: Increased Safety or flameproof
  • Interface: 4-20 mA, Relays
  • IP class: IP 65/66/67
  • Special: Display

Fast and stable – the DrägerSensor® Ex

The DrägerSensor® Ex is based on the proven catalytic bead principle. Innovative dual active elements result in good long-term zero stability. Dräger has raised the bar for poison resistance yet again. Its long service life ensures that ownership costs remain low. Performance measurement has also been improved. The innovative gas inlet enables the sensor to detect gas within a matter of seconds.

Same design, same operating principles

Polytron 5200 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. Coloured LEDs (green, yellow and red) provide additional alarm and status information.

Three relays for controlling external equipment

The Dräger Polytron 5200 can also be supplied with three integrated relays upon request. This enables you to use it as an independent gas detection system with two 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

The Polytron 5200 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. A protection type “e” version includes a convenient docking station that allows installation in hazardous atmospheres without running conduit (where approved) and this also facilitates pre-assembly.

Make the impossible possible with the remote sensor

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.
