A new infrared sensor improves CO2 monitoring

The Ultima X5000 gas monitor is now being offered with the new XIR Plus infrared (IR) sensor to provide enhanced detection of carbon dioxide (CO2). The monitor continuously detects CO2 levels and issues alarm commands when the gas is present in toxic quantities. Two detection ranges for CO2 gas are available — either 2% or 5% by volume. Highly stable, the XIR Plus sensor features repeatability of±2% of lower explosive limit (LEL) or volume, and drift is <2% of full scale per year, according to the manufacturer. The sensor’s T90 range is less than 2 s, providing fast warning when CO2 gas is present. The monitor features a touch-control display, dual sensor inputs and eliminates the need for specialized setup tools or a separate controller. — MSA Safety Inc., Cranberry Township, Pa.
