3M Gas & Flame Detection is pleased to announce that the PS200 portable gas detector is now available with a new catalytic bead sensor option that provides an increased battery life of up to 80 hours in diffusion mode and 20 hours in pump mode.
Both lightweight and durable, the instrument is ideal for protection in hotworks and confined space applications. The PS200 monitors and displays up to four hazardous gas conditions simultaneously, detecting all possible combinations of methane, oxygen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide and a wide range of flammable gases.
Operator interface and calibration are intuitive and easy by toggling between simple one-button functions. During normal operation, the large LCD screen displays battery life and real-time gas concentrations, but when a hazardous condition occurs users are alerted by three alarm functions: vibration, red flashing LEDs, and audible buzzer.
To ensure the highest level of personal safety, the PS200 is also fitted with an optional man down/motion sensor that activates alarms if the instrument is not moved within a pre-set time. Other features include an optional built in remote sampling pump for confined space entry, manual backlight screen for poor lighting conditions, a customized user identification code setup, calibration due date display and standard datalogging that can be downloaded with a USB connection to a computer.
Accessory components available separately include an Auto Bump and Calibration Station, a five-instrument multi-charger and an assortment of coloured boots / instrument covers.
