Servomex releases OxyDetect oxygen deficiency monitor
July 9, 2013 - Servomex releases OxyDetect oxygen monitor, a safe area monitor which uses advanced non-depleting paramagnetic technology to accurately monitor oxygen levels - without sensor deterioration.
Designed for use in life safety applications, the OxyDetect utilises the Hummingbird Paracube Micro paramagnetic sensor. The OxyDetect's non-consumable design ensures longevity and eliminates the costs associated with the regular replacement of electrochemical, galvanic or fuel cells, as well as the recognised problems of cell degradation when in use or kept as a stock item. As the OxyDetect's paramagnetic measurement stability also eliminates the requirement for frequent calibration, users avoid frequent labour and downtime costs, incurred either when a traditional cell is calibrated or replaced due to anticipated expiration or sudden failure.
As well as significantly reducing the cost of ownership, saving time and money, the OxyDetect utilises advanced microprocessor-based diagnostics that are safe, reliable and easy to access via a simple front panel digital interface. Suitable for use in indoor environments ranging in temperature from 5°C to 45°C, the OxyDetect offers an isolated 4-20mA output with linear measurement for simple integration, an output range of 0-25% O2 and a fault alarm via mA jam to 0mA.
