Catalytic Bead Gas Sensor Module 5100-02-IT
Sierra Monitor's 5100-02-IT module monitors combustible gases such as Methane, Hydrogen, Propane, and others.
The 5100-02-IT module is based on catalytic bead technology, a consistent and reliable method of detection that offers excellent response times to the target gases.
As the longest rated and FM-approved calibration cycle for any catalytic bead gas sensor, the 5100-02-IT module has minimal maintenance requirements and only requires six month calibration intervals. Although the 5100-02-IT module can be used as a stand-alone sensor, it can also be used as a 4-20 mA component or as a Modbus RTU node. For higher level system capability, the module can interface directly to Sierra Monitor's Sentry IT Controller to enable system level Modbus serial communications, area and zone alarm management, extensive system diagnostic features, WebServer interface, and multiplexing sensor connections.
The Catalytic Bead Combustible Gas Sensor Module 5100-02-IT is approved and certified by a variety of third party agencies, including UL, FM, ATEX, SIL, ABS, CSA, and CE. These approvals and certifications assure our customers that we carry only the highest quality of products.
The 5100-02-IT supports GlobalCal™, our unique global calibration feature of the Sentry IT Controller. This allows a single technician to calibrate connected detectors from the Sentry IT Controller. With GlobalCal, the calibration happens at the controller level. Multiple sensors can be connected to a single controller, allowing groups of sensors to be calibrated at the same time. Standard gas is applied remotely, using permanently installed tubing, rather than direct delivery to the fixed gas detector.
Combined with the six-month calibration interval, GlobalCal reduces labor costs associated with calibration. The need to shut down active process areas for calibration consequently costs facilities thousands of dollars in lost production time. GlobalCal, with its remote and non-intrusive methods, allows production to continue during the calibration process, thus avoiding the costs of lost production. In addition, factory-authorized service technicians performing gas detector calibration save time and costs by remotely calibrating all gas detectors at once from the Sentry IT Controller.
