Intelligent Hydrogen Gas Detector from General Monitors continuously monitors for hydrogen and has a
precision electrochemical hydrogen sensor that has a T90 response
of under 30 secs and minimal zero shift across its operating environmental
conditions. It is unaffected by short-term (= 2.5 min) exposure to hydrogen
concentrations up to 50 percent LEL. The
TS4000H Detector has a 4-20 mA output, 8A relays, HART or Modbus
communications, and a 3-digit LED display that displays gas concentrations in
ppm. The system also displays fault codes for
troubleshooting and provides complete status to the Control Room.
of the electronics are contained within an explosion-proof housing so gas sensor
information can be processed at the sensor site. The gas sensor may be remote
mounted up to 2000 ft (610 m) away from the electronics.
interface module's galvanically-isolated,
intrinsically-safe design also supports sensor field replacement without
special tools or hot work permits. The TS4000H detector calibrates by
activating a magnetic switch and applying gas.
engineers who need to protect people, equipment and the environment will find the
TS4000H hydrogen sensor suited for industries where hydrogen gas leaks are a
hazard. The detector complies with ATEX, CSA, CE, GOST and is certified for use
in SIL 2 environments.
addition to monitoring for low hydrogen levels, the TS4000H can be configured
to detect other toxic gases including: ammonia, carbon monoxide, chlorine, chlorine
dioxide, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen sulfide, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide,
oxygen deficiency, ozone and sulfur dioxide.
Lithium-ion battery prices will drop rapidly over the next 10 years, setting the stage for plug-in vehicles to reach 5%-10% of total automotive sales by the mid- to late-2020s, according to a new study.
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
A recent Design News-exclusive study proves that engineering professionals are at the very forefront of this push into the future and making direct financial, performance, and value impact on their organizations by being personally involved or final decision-makers on automation solution and component choices.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
