Detector Electronics Corporation , a world leader in industrial fire detection, gas detection and hazard mitigation systems, introduces the PointWatch Eclipse CO2 detector, an infrared fixed-point carbon dioxide gas detector that provides non-intrusive calibration, and multiple communications options via 4-20mA, Modbus, relays and HART. Det-Tronics is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
The PointWatch Eclipse CO2 gas detector’s non-intrusive calibration allows a single person to calibrate the detector without declassifying the hazardous area, helping to reduce maintenance costs and improving uptime.
The PointWatch Eclipse CO2 gas detector continues the tradition of dependability proven by the model PIRECL combustible gas detector. Its heated optics feature allows constant operation even in extreme environments, making it suitable for petrochemical oil and gas applications.
“The reliable gas detection provided by the PointWatch Eclipse CO2 is ideal for monitoring CO2 to detect a loss of containment,” said Bryon Gordon, product manager, Det-Tronics. “This detector is designed to operate effectively under rapidly changing temperature and pressure conditions that occur during a CO2 release.”
In addition, the PointWatch Eclipse CO2 gas detector has been tested and certified to meet CSA, ATEX, INMETRO and IECEx requirements.
