Edinburgh Instruments is now manufacturing a new range of high-performance, low-cost, dual-wavelength infrared refrigerant gas sensors. Designated the Chillcard 11 range they are designed to be integrated into a wide range of systems where accurate and reliable measurement of HCFC/HFC refrigerant gas concentrations is required.
This versatile range uses a rugged infrared source to ensure a long lifetime, minimum maintenance and reduced susceptibility to shock.
Measuring 100 x 160 x 40mm (eurocard) and weighing only 0.3kg, the sensors are suitable for use where space is at a premium. Operating temperature is 0-45 degrees C, with a power requirement of 24V DC (18-30V) and power consumption of 6W maximum.
Suitable for a wide range of applications, these units can detect gases from sampling points up to 30m away using the optional sampling pump. Further optional extras include four-digit LCDs, DC pumps and RS232 interface adapters for advanced output signal processing.
Edinburgh Instruments can also manufacture and design variants of the Chillcard range to customers' requirements.
These innovative products have many applications in the process, engineering, laboratory and manufacturing industries.
