General Monitors' TS4000 Gas Detector receives SIL 2 Rating
The TS4000 Toxic Gas Detector has been third-party certified for SIL 2 applications and is approved by CSA, ATEX, CE Marking and GOST. Its sophisticated design offers many advanced features, including long distance remote mounting up to 2,000 feet, dual redundant MODBUS communications, 8 A relays, three-digit display, 4-20 mA output, and an indication of remaining sensor life. All electronics are contained within an explosion-proof housing so that sensor information can be processed at the sensor site. The detector provides complete status and control capability in the control room. Additionally, the interface modules galvanically-isolated, intrinsically-safe design supports sensor field replacement without special tools or hot work permits.
Easy to install, the TS4000 features one-person calibration and can virtually self-calibrate by activating a magnetic switch and applying gas. Process engineers who need to protect people and equipment will find the TS4000 Toxic Gas Detector ideal for chemical, oil and gas, water and wastewater treatment, pulp and paper, and other hazardous environments. Additional applications include public utilities, refineries, pharmaceuticals, and food and beverage.
The TS4000 monitors a variety of toxic gases in the parts per million (ppm) range,
Including ammonia, carbon monoxide, chlorine, chlorine dioxide, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen sulfide, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, oxygen, ozone, and sulfur dioxide. The system displays gas concentrations up to 500 ppm, fault codes for troubleshooting, prompts when calibration is needed, and provides complete status to the user. Additionally, the TS4000 simplifies operation and maintenance and reduces downtime by indicating remaining sensor life.
The TS4000 is comprised of a base unit, sensor housing with interface module and electrochemical sensor. The interface module processes information at the sensor site and communicates detected gas values to the base unit for data control and display. By combining explosion-proof certification with intrinsically safe inputs, the TS4000 provides high performance in hazardous locations.
