Industrial sites that employ or produce hazardous or toxic gases have a high level of responsibility for protecting workers and the environment from exposure or harm. A significant component of efforts to mitigate the risk posed by toxic gas or vapor is to install instruments capable of detecting the target gases at levels sufficient to provide an alert before, or when, levels reach unacceptable concentrations.

Dräger manufactures gas detectors utilizing electrochemical sensing technology, providing continuous detection of target gases and vapors under a wide range of environmental conditions. The sensors are factory calibrated and ready to use when shipped. The sensor connection is intrinsically safe, so a flame arrestor is not needed. Intelligent self-testing provides predictive maintenance assistance.

There is more to learn about the toxic gas and oxygen sensors from Dräger. The document included below provides a guide to the over 100 toxic gases and vapors detectable by the unit. Share your toxic gas, vapor, and oxygen detection challenges with a product application specialist. The combination of your process knowledge with their product application expertise will produce effective solutions.

X-zone 3D Adds WIFI to Dräger X-zone Mobile Gas Detection System

Dräger X-zone
Dräger X-zone
The Dräger X-zone 5000/5500 is a mobile gas detection system for flexible area monitoring. It can be used for the measurement of up to six gases in combination with the gas detection instruments Dräger X-am 5000, 5600 or 5100. Up to 25 Dräger X-zone 5000/5500 can be automatically interconnected to form a wireless fence line. Therefore it is possible to control large areas continuously.

While the X-zone has been available with GSM and Modbus communications for a while now, the new X-zone 3D wireless communication module offers WIFI.

Designed to work with Dräger X-zone gas detectors, the X-zone 3D sends all data and alarms to any workstation location, email/SMS (text messaging) address, or the cloud wirelessly. This secure area monitoring system lets you determine the time, place and concentration of toxic gas levels – the most vital data points – well outside of the danger zone.​

The video below explains the interconnection concept and capabilities via GSM, MODBUS. The availability of WIFI connections extends the connectivity and communications for Dräger devices to a whole new level.
