The Microtector II G460 measures up to 7 gases simultaneously in ambient air for increased workplace safety. The sensor slots can be equipped individually. Different detection principles are available for optimal measuring results. The G460 is certified to EN 60079-29-1 (combustible gas performance) EN 50104 (oxygen), EN 45544-1 (toxic) and EN 45544-2 (toxic).
The most common sensors detect O2, H2S, CO, CO2 and combustible gases. Additional sensors are available for NH3, HCl, PH3, HCN, NO, NO2, SO2 and a variety of other gases.
For increasing the user's safety, the Microtector II G460 detects carbon dioxide by means of a selective infrared sensor (NDIR). This sensor provides long-term stable detection values. Unlike electrochemical sensors, IR technology is not subject to cross sensitivity from toxic hydrogen sulphide. Photoionization detector (PID) equipped instruments are increasingly viewed as the best choice for measurement of VOCs at exposure limit concentrations. Familiar substances containing VOCs include solvents, paint thinner and nail polish remover, as well as the vapors associated with fuels such as gasoline, diesel, heating oil, kerosene and jet fuel. The category also includes many specific toxic substances such as benzene, butadiene, hexane, toluene, xylene, and many others. Most VOC vapors are flammable at surprisingly low concentrations. For most VOCs, however, the toxic exposure limit is exceeded long before readings reach a concentration high enough to trigger a combustible range alarm.
The Microtector II G450 is the first gas detector which got the well-known »red dot design award«. Red dot stands for high design quality as well as degree of innovation, durability, functionality and self explanatory quality.
