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

  • Ammonia>>
  • Carbon Dioxide >>
  • Carbon Monoxide >>
  • Chlorine >>
  • Ethylene Oxide >>
  • Hydrogen Chloride >>
  • Hydrogen Sulphide >>
  • Nitric Oxide >>

Ammonia Safe Area Fixed Gas Detector

FGD4 Series, Loop Powered 4 To 20mA Transmitter

Using Electrochemical Gas Sensor Technology

safe area fixed gas detector

Features 

  • Standard ranges 0-100ppm or 0-1000ppm NH3. 
  • Competitively priced for use in non-hazardous areas only. 
  • Two wire connection. 
  • 8 to 24 volt dc operation. 
  • Industry standard 4 to 20mA output. 
  • Plug-in hand held configuration unit. 
The FGD4 Safe Area Gas Detector uses electrochemical sensor technology to detect the Ammonia gas level in the atmosphere. The detector uses the industry standard 4-20mA current loop to both power the detector and to convey the gas levels detected to a separate control unit such as the Status Scientific Controls LC Series. This means that under zero gas conditions 4mA is drawn from the supply, and under full scale gas conditions 20mA is drawn from the supply. The current varies linearly for gas levels between zero and full scale. The detector head uses a two-wire connection. 
 
Calibration of the FGD4 can be carried out simply by using ZERO and SPAN buttons inside the instrument provided that the concentration of the calibration gas is the same as that used for factory calibration of the detector (refer to the instrument calibration certificate for details). 
 
Alternatively, the purpose designed plug-in hand held configuration unit shown below may be used together with any appropriate test gas concentration. 
      Configuration Unit 
 
The FGD4 is calibrated using a purpose designed plug-in hand held configuration unit. To carry out a calibration, the operator must open the front cover of the unit, plug in the configuration unit and then present zero and span gases to the sensor during the course of the calibration procedure. 
 
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.
