Polytron 8200: Advanced Gas Detector with Catalysic Sensor Technology and HART.
The Draeger Polytron 8200 is designed to help you detect flammable gases that could potentially cause explosions. It uses a unique sensor called the catalytic bead DrägerSensor Ex, which is very sensitive and can detect most types of flammable gases and vapors. This sensor plays a crucial role in keeping us safe by alerting us when there is a danger of explosion due to the presence of these gases.
What’s really cool about the Polytron 8200 is that it not only provides an output in the form of a 3-wire 4 to 20-mA analog signal with relays but also offers different communication protocols like HART, Modbus, and Fieldbus. These protocols allow the Polytron 8200 to connect and communicate with various control systems commonly used in industries. This compatibility makes it very versatile and ensures it can work seamlessly with different types of monitoring and control systems to enhance safety.
Benefits of Polytron 8200
Fast and Stable – the DrägerSensor Ex
The DrägerSensor Ex inside the Polytron 8200 responds quickly to flammable gases, preventing dangerous situations. It is durable, with long-term stability and resistance to harmful substances.
Easy Device Management
The Polytron 8200 can be remotely monitored through digital interfaces, making it convenient to check its status. It has various communication systems like HART, PROFIBUS PA, FOUNDATION fieldbus H1, and Modbus RTU for seamless integration with other systems.
Same Design, Same Operation
The Polytron 8200 has a user-friendly design, and all devices in the Polytron 8000 series share the same interface. This ensures easy operation, minimal training, and a clear display showing gas concentration and alarm statuses.
Relays for Control
The Polytron 8200 can be equipped with three relays, allowing it to function as an independent gas detection system. This enables control of local alarms and devices without extra wiring.
Safe and Robust
The Polytron 8200 has a sturdy and explosion-proof housing, making it suitable for different environments. The protection type ‘e’ version allows installation in hazardous areas without extra wiring.
Remote Sensor Placement
The remote sensor connection lets you place the sensor closer to the gas cloud, even in hard-to-reach areas, enhancing detection accuracy. It supports ‘hot replacement’ for easy sensor maintenance.
The Polytron 8200 has a data logger that records important information and events for analysis and review.
