Electrochemical Toxic Gas Sensor Module 5100-XX-IT

Sierra Monitor’s fixed 5100-XX-IT gas module monitors toxic gases such as Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), Ammonia (NH3), Oxygen (O2) Deficiency, and others.

The 5100-XX-IT module is based on electrochemical technology, a proven, less-expensive option that offers high accuracy, low power requirements, and sensitivity to a particular gas in the parts-per-million range.

The proven 5100-XX-IT fixed gas sensor module requires calibration only every six months, cutting operating costs and time. As part of the Sentry IT “smart” detector line, the module can be remotely diagnosed and calibrated via Remote Sensor Capability, a valuable asset for toxic gas monitoring. The 5100-XX-IT also offers a three or four wire 4-20mA analog output signal. By integration of IT modules into a Sentry system, the user gains the capability of system Modbus serial communications, extensive diagnostics features, WebServer interface, multiplexed sensor wiring, and field-proven reliability.

The Electrochemical Toxic Gas Sensor Module 5100-XX-IT is approved and certified by a variety of third party agencies, including FM, CE, CSA, SIL-2, ATEX, and IECEx. These approvals and certifications assure our customers that we carry only the highest quality of products and performance.

GlobalCal™

The 5100-XX-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.
