Now SIL2 certified gas detectors
09 February 2016
The GD10P and GD10PE infrared gas detectors from Simtronics are now certified SIL 2 and SIL 3 capable.
The Simtronics GD10P detector is employed in combustible gas detection applications in offshore installations.
The detector is designed to provide an effective response to the detection of gas hazards in a wide range of industrial environments, from boiler plant rooms to offshore petrochemical installations.
The infrared gas detectors differ from all other models, because they utilise silicon-based solid-state infrared sources. The complete optomechanical design and construction enables an ultrafast speed of response of less than 2 seconds to be achieved with the benefit of a long service life and detector stability, saving on maintenance and service costs.
The detector is supplied with worldwide performance and hazardous area approvals.
An industry standard HART interface is used for configuration of the optical fast response time and special fault levels as well as access to extended maintenance data.
Now all of these features are covered by TÜV Rheinland Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2 certification for a single transmitter, and SIL 3 certification for installations with redundant transmitters.
