General Monitors launches toxic gas detector

Offshore staff

LAKE FOREST, California – General Monitors has released its TS4000H Intelligent Hydrogen Gas Detector, which accurately detects hydrogen at 0-500 ppm levels.

The TS4000H Gas Detector continuously monitors for hydrogen. It features a precision electrochemical hydrogen sensor that has a T90 response of under 30 seconds and minimal zero shift across its operating environmental conditions. Furthermore, it is unaffected by short-term (≤ 2.5 min) exposure to hydrogen concentrations up to 50% LEL.

The TS4000H Detector features a design with many functions, including 4-20 mA output, 8 amp 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.

All of the electronics are contained within an explosion-proof housing so that 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.

The interface module’s galvanically-isolated, intrinsically-safe design also supports sensor field replacement without special tools or hot work permits. The TS4000H detector is easy to install and calibrates by activating a magnetic switch and applying gas.
