Milpitas, CA —Model 5100-02-IT combustible gas sensor module from Sierra Monitor Corp . is FM-approved for performance, electrical safety, and environment parameters to manage gas processing
Standalone unit has a variety of features for use in hazardous areas. These include fast response time; high accuracy; and integral LED display, magnet-operated menu to indicate gas status and for non-intrusive calibration. Integral alarm relays may be supplemented by higher amperage control relays in the same enclosure.
Unit monitors methane and other combustible gases. Output range is 0-100% of lower explosive limit (LEL). For higher-level system capability, the module can interface to Sierra Monitor’s Sentry controller enabling system-level Modbus serial communications, area and zone alarm management, extensive system diagnostic features, LanServer interface, and multiplexed sensor connections.
