Drager Polytron FX
This product is obsolete and has been replaced by the Polytron 5200 and Polytron 5310.
The Polytron FX is an economical, microprocessor-based gas detector for continuous
monitoring of combustible gases and vapors in ambient air. Non-intrusive calibration and
maintenance is performed using a magnetic wand to access the software through the
enclosure window – no need to open the enclosure (and obtain special area permits) to
perform routine calibrations.
Easy to install
The enclosure provides two mounting
holes. For easy wiring, bezel and electronics
are one unit, and can be pulled out.
The three wire cable, fed through a sealed
conduit, is terminated in a pluggable
connector at the printed circuit board.
One man calibration
All setup and maintenance is performed
without opening the transmitter or declassifying
the hazardous area. Tapping a
magnetic wand at the three buttons
through the window gives full access to the
menu and the calibration procedure. No
need for an additional handheld terminal.
Polytron FX offers two sensing principles:
catalytic combustion or infrared.
The interior design of the catalytic bead
sensor offers an extremely high sensitivity.
Higher sensitivity also means shorter
response times, higher accuracy and
improved stability of the sensor signal.
The advanced poison resistant DragerSensor PR has a significantly
The DragerSensor IR is the sensor of
choice, where ‘poisonous’ gases might be
in the ambient air. Over time, these can
damage the catalyst of a catalytic bead
sensor, decreasing its sensitivity. In order
to reduce maintenance costs for recalibration
and exchange, the infrared technology
offers a superior solution.
Detection of very low concentrations
The Polytron FX can be equipped with a
special low drift sensor for the reliable
detection of gas concentrations between
0 and 10 %LEL. This allows for the detection
of small leaks at a very early stage.
