General Monitors' IR700 Infrared Carbon Dioxide Point Detector

April 10, 2012
The IR700 infrared carbon dioxide point detector requires no routine calibration and provides complete control room status and control capability for monitoring at the ppm level

The model IR700 features a precision IR point sensing element that offers reliable protection against the hazards of carbon dioxide gas leaks. The IR700 features a true fail-to-safe design for dependable gas detection performance, heated optics to eliminate condensation, and a dirty optics indicator informs the user the device must be cleaned before the lenses are entirely blocked, thereby reducing downtime. The detector also features microprocessor-based technology to continuously monitor CO2 at a range of 0-5000 ppm. All of the model IR700's electronics are contained within a rugged, explosion-proof housing so that detector information can be processed at the point of detection. It features multiple communication outputs, a 4-20 mA signal proportional to 0-100% full-scale, Modbus, and HART.  The IR700 is also available with relays for warning, alarm, and faults.
