Toxic gas detector available with HART

19 June 2009

The TS4000H intelligent toxic gas detector from General Monitors is now compatible with the HART communication protocol. The TS4000H offers protection against a wide range of hazardous industrial gases and is able to safeguard against oxygen deficiency.

The HART protocol permits access to device configuration, diagnostics, as well as maintenance and alarm records. As a result, a whole host of additional information related to plant operation is available to the control room through HART. Unlike other digital communication protocols, HART is backward compatible with the installed base of instrumentation in use today.

The detector offers event logs, a clearly visible LED, and an indicator for remaining sensor life. The TS4000H is also available in a Modbus configuration and with three 8-Amp relays. All of the electronics are contained within an explosion-proof housing so that sensor information can be processed at the sensor site.

The interface module’s galvanically-isolated, intrinsically-safe design supports sensor field replacement without special tools or hot work permits. The detector is easy to install and can self calibrate by activating a magnetic switch and applying gas. For worldwide application, the detector complies with ATEX, CSA, CE, GOST, and is certified for use in SIL 2 environments.
