Description:

The FGD10B is an explosion protected ATEX and IECEx certified fixed gas detector for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

It comprises an instrument enclosure with two cable gland entries. The enclosure contains the connection terminals, electronics and gas sensor which is located in the base of the enclosure or screwed to the base in a stainless steel housing. The unit may be optionally fitted with a protective weather guard as shown in the photograph opposite.

Calibration of the FGD10B 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 above may be used together with any appropriate test gas concentration.

Calibration of the unit requires the removal of the front cover of the flameproof enclosure and therefore must only be carried out under either of the following conditions:-

  1. In a safe area where there is no risk of the presence of an explosive gas.
  2. Within the hazardous area by authorised personnel under controlled conditions after it has been established that no flammable gases are present in the area. Note that a management or health and safety department permit may be required for this to be carried out.
