Status Scientific Gas Detectors

Safe Area Gas Detectors - Loop Powered

FGD4 Series of 4 To 20mA Transmitters

status scientific gas detector - safe area
The FGD4 series of gas detectors are powered from an 8 to 24 volts dc power supply using the industry standard 4 to 20mA two-wire current loop to transmit the gas level to a separate control panel such as the Status Scientific Controls LC Series. The Carbon Dioxide version uses Infrared gas detection technology and requires a third connection to power the infrared sensor. 
 
Typical examples of their use are in water purification processes, food preparation and/or storage, car parks, swimming pools, medical applications. 

Versions are available for detection of the following common gas types:-

Gas Type

Sensor Technology

Note – These gas detectors are not certified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and therefore must only be used in applications where it is known that potentially explosive gases do not exist.

Safe Area Gas Detectors - Mains/DC Powered

FGD14 Series 

 
Status Scientific Safe Area Gas Detectors - Mains/DC Powered
The FGD14 series are stand-alone gas detectors with a front panel display of the gas level. The detectors contain 2 control relays that can be activated via user definable alarm set points; the relay contacts can then be used to control external equipment. 
 
An audible/visual remote unit is also provided with the detector. 
 
Models are available for powering from either:- 
  • A mains supply of between 85 and 265 volts ac. 
  • A DC power supply from 9 to 30 volts. 
 
Typical applications for the FGD14 series are in:- 
  • Water purification processes. 
  • Food preparation and/or storage. 
  • Car parks. 
  • Swimming pools. 
  • Medical applications. 

They are available for detection of the following common gas types:-
