Dräger Polytron® 8100 EC
The Polytron® 8100 EC is Dräger’s top of the line explosion proof transmitter for the detection of toxic gases or oxygen. It uses a high performance plug and play electrochemical DrägerSensor® to detect a specific gas. Besides a 3 wire 4 to 20 mA analogue output with relays, it also offers Modbus and Fieldbus protocol making it compatible with most control systems.
Durable, intelligent and sensitive – the DrägerSensor®With unique electrochemical DrägerSensors, Polytron 8100 can detect over 100 toxic gases and oxygen. These long life sensors provide continuous detection even under the harshest conditions. DrägerSensors offer the industry’s widest temperature and humidity range between -40°C to +65°C (-40°F to +150°F). The built-in memory contains all calibration and configuration information: therefore the sensor ships pre calibrated and is ready for immediate operation. An intelligent sensor self-test function allows for predictive maintenance. The intrinsically safe connection of the sensor eliminates the need for a flame arrestor, giving you faster response times and higher sensitivity.
Safe, robust housing for every application
Polytron 8100 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).
Easy device management via digital communication
The Dräger Polytron 8100 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 with PROFIBUS® PA, FOUNDATION fieldbus™ H1, and Modbus RTU are also available.
