Hand Held LEL and PPM Combustible Gas Leak Detector
SENSIT® HXG-3P instruments are constructed of durable ABS plastic to withstand the rigors of field use.
Incorporated in the hand grip area is the battery compartment. All SENSIT® HXG-3P instruments require 3 “C” type alkaline batteries. Duracell MN 1400 batteries provide approximately 12 hours of continuous use.
A thumbwheel is located on the right side of the instrument to activate the audible tick sound that helps in locating the source of a gas leak. This tick is generated by using specialized circuitry in combination with the LEL sensor located at the end of the gooseneck assembly. The tick can be easily heard with the speaker located in the back of the instrument.
The Infrared Communication window is located on the right side to allow the SENSIT® HXG-3P instrument to
1. Communicate with Smart-Cal Calibration Station.
2. Communicate with IR-Link Computer Interface.
3. Download calibration data
4. Download readings the operator has elected to save to the instrument’s on-board memory.
All SENSIT® HXG-3P instruments incorporate a highly sensitive semiconductor type sensor. The function and accuracy of the sensor are monitored and controlled by specialized circuitry and a microprocessor. This sensor is capable of measuring concentrations of 1 ppm or 10 ppm of methane (natural) or pentane gas up to 100% LEL.
The instrument is equipped with a powerful and efficient pump. A water/ dirt filter incorporated in the sensor cap at the end of the gooseneck protects the pump and other internal components. An additional internal filter protects the pump if the external filter is missing or damaged. Audible and visual indicators alert for insufficient flow conditions
NOTE: Operating the instrument without a sensor cap or with an altered or damaged cap and/or filters can cause damage to the instrument and void the warranty.
