Drager X-Zone 5500 Hazardous Gas Area Monitoring

Drager X-zone 5500
Drager X-zone 5500
The Dräger X-zone 5500 transforms the Dräger X-am 5000/5100/5600 personal gas detection instruments into innovative area gas monitoring devices for a wide range of applications. In addition to personal air monitors carried on the body, these area gas monitors are positioned where gas hazards are expected to increase the level of safety.

Wireless fenceline

Up to 25 Dräger X-Zone 5500 can be automatically interconnected to form a wireless fenceline. The interconnection of the area monitoring devices allows for rapid establishment of safety networks for larger areas. A Dräger X-zone 5500 detecting a gas alarm transmits the alarm signal to all interconnected units. A red flashing master alarm in the mother unit detecting gas contrasts with red/green flashing alarms of the connected daughter units providing simple recognition of alarm status and the actual location of the hazard.

With the corresponding configuration, the maximum gas concentration in the monitored area is shown on the display. Combined with the display of the X-zone ID a clear containment of the hazard area is possible.

Clear warning

The illuminated green LED ring indicates that the air is free of toxic and combustible gases. Upon detection of gas hazards, the LED color changes from green to red, thus providing a clear visual warning that gas is present. Additionally, a loud and highly audible evacuation alarm is emitted. The Dräger X-zone 5500 gas entry is arranged that the gas can diffuse into Dräger X-am gas monitors from all sides.

Perfect for confined spaces

An integrated pump version allows for continuous monitoring of confined spaces and locations which are difficult to access, even from a distance of up to 150 ft.

Other benefits
  • Visual 360° LED (illuminated ring) 
  • Audible 360°; > 108 dB in a distance of 1 m (30 ft.), 120 dB in a distance of 30 cm (1 ft.) 
  • Approval for Ex-Zone 0 
  • Daily function test and calibration not required after single on-site testing 
  • Individually configurable with the Dräger CC-Vision PC software (eg. alarm frequency) 
  • Inductive charging station: easy and convenient non-contact charging 
  • Continuous operation for up to 120 hours: The 24 Ah battery of the Dräger X-zone 5500 provides up to 120 hours of continuous operation – a complete working week.

Toxic Gas and Vapor Detectors - What Can Be Measured

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.
