Description:

The FGD 3 Oxygen or Toxic gas detectors use electrochemical sensor technology to detect for gases in the atmosphere in potentially explosive atmospheres in Zones 0, 1 and 2. The detectors use the industry standard 4-20mA current loop both to power the detector and to convey the gas levels detected to a control unit. 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.

A marine version of the FGD3 is also available. This version is housed in a cast aluminium enclosure to provide higher RFI immunity where high power portable radios are used in the close confines of a vessel. The enclosure is plated and painted in order to withstand the harsh salt spray environment of the marine industry. The digital display is fitted with a sliding stainless steel front cover which remains over the display window when not being viewed thereby maintaining the RFI shielding properties of the enclosure during normal operation.

An optional weather guard is available for installations exposed to the atmosphere or contaminants and is also suitable for use in other areas where hosing down takes place. The weather guard reduces the possibility of water or other contaminants entering into the gas sensor thereby improving the overall reliability of the gas detector in harsh environments. The weather guard is attached with tamperproof screws to ensure that it is not inadvertently removed.
