Drager Polytron FX

This product is obsolete and has been replaced by the Polytron 5200 and Polytron 5310.

The Polytron FX is an economical, microprocessor-based gas detector for continuous monitoring of combustible gases and vapors in ambient air. Non-intrusive calibration and maintenance is performed using a magnetic wand to access the software through the enclosure window - no need to open the enclosure (and obtain special area permits) to perform routine calibrations.

Easy to install

The enclosure provides two mounting holes. For easy wiring, bezel and electronics are one unit, and can be pulled out. The three wire cable, fed through a sealed conduit, is terminated in a pluggable connector at the printed circuit board.

One man calibration

All setup and maintenance is performed without opening the transmitter or declassifying the hazardous area. Tapping a magnetic wand at the three buttons through the window gives full access to the menu and the calibration procedure. No need for an additional handheld terminal.

DragerSensor technology

Polytron FX offers two sensing principles: catalytic combustion or infrared. The interior design of the catalytic bead sensor offers an extremely high sensitivity. Higher sensitivity also means shorter response times, higher accuracy and improved stability of the sensor signal. The advanced poison resistant DragerSensor PR has a significantly longer lifetime.

The DragerSensor IR is the sensor of choice, where 'poisonous' gases might be in the ambient air. Over time, these can damage the catalyst of a catalytic bead sensor, decreasing its sensitivity. In order to reduce maintenance costs for recalibration and exchange, the infrared technology offers a superior solution.

Detection of very low concentrations

The Polytron FX can be equipped with a special low drift sensor for the reliable detection of gas concentrations between 0 and 10 %LEL. This allows for the detection of small leaks at a very early stage.
