Methane Detector
  • Stable long-life metal-oxide / pellistor sensor
  • Range 0...100% LEL CH4
  • Resolution 0,1 / 1 % LEL CH4
  • Two SPST relays option
  • 2 × 4-20 mA or 0-10 V, RS485

Methane detector-transmitter E2648-CH4 is a member of new PluraSens® family of multifunctional measurement instruments.

Applications include underground parkings, boiler houses, kitchens, and other areas, where potentially explosive concentration of methane can accumulate.

The instrument utilises fully calibrated metal-oxide semiconductor or pellistro gas sensor with excellent repeatability, stability and long lifetime.

Two relays with closing contact (optional) may be used for remote signalling or concentration control. Two alarm set-points are user settable.

Two analog outputs and RS485 digital interface with industry standard Modbus RTU protocol can be used to connect the detector to safety or building automation systems.
