ProDetec announces the latest enhanced version of the Simtronics GD1 laser open-path gas detector featuring a stronger signal that increases the path length distance between the detector and transmitter by 50% from 50m to 75m.
The significantly higher signal strength has increased the detector’s robustness and performance especially in extreme weather conditions such as ice and sandstorms. The gas detector is fail-safe and can take up to 98% obscuration without any false readings.
The Simtronics GD1 laser open-path H2S detector has been designed with features that provide an effective response to gas hazards. A tuneable laser diode at the heart of the detector effectively eliminates environmental effects from sun, rain and fog. The laser scans single absorption lines where there is no interference from other gases.
Unlike traditional methods for detecting H2S, the Simtronics GD1 needs no recalibration and can replace multiple standard detectors to cover the same risk. It can be calibrated to detect an expansive range of H2S concentration from 0ppm*m to 200,000ppm*m, ensuring personal safety.
Excellent service life and detector stability of the Simtronics GD1 help save on maintenance and service costs. The complete opto-mechanical design and construction is so stable that an ultra-fast speed of response of five seconds can be achieved.
These gas detectors are supplied with IECEX/ ATEX hazardous area approvals, are suitable for SIL2 applications and come with a 5-year warranty.
