GT3000 Toxic Gas Detector Family Receives ATEX Approval

May 7, 2010
Detector Electronics Corporation (Det-Tronics) GT3000 Toxic Gas Detectors have received ATEX hazardous location and performance certification (http://gt3000.det-tronics.com).

In addition, GT3000 Toxic Gas Detectors are FM, CSA, CE, and IECEx certified and have earned the IP66 rating. Det-Tronics is part of UTC Fire & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

The GT3000 family is a group of electrochemical fixed-point detectors that provide non-intrusive calibration, communication via 4-20mA with HART protocol, and the ability to swap sensors without de-classifying hazardous areas.

A GT3000 detector consists of a transmitter (GTX) and a sensor module (GTS). The transmitter generates a 4-20mA output signal with HART that is proportional to the concentration of the target gas and corresponds directly to 0-100% full scale.

Currently, the GT3000 family includes sensors that detect these gases: hydrogen sulfide (H2S), oxygen (O2), carbon monoxide (CO), ammonia (NH3), chlorine (Cl2), and sulfur dioxide (SO2). More gases will be added soon.

"Although GT3000 is approved as a stand-alone device," says product development manager Mike Bragg, "many users choose to partner it with our FlexVu® Universal Display for quick device set up and easy access to sensor status."
