IR5500 Open Path Gas Monitor

IR5500 Open Path Gas Monitor    
IR5500 Open Path Gas Detector
The Model IR5500 is an open path IR gas detector that provides continuous monitoring of methane and propane gas concentrations. The system consists of an IR source and receiver which continuously monitors for methane in both the 0 to 5000 ppm•meter and 0 to 5 LEL•meter range. A 0 to 2000 ppm•meter and 0 to 1 LEL•meter range is also available for monitoring propane. The IR5500 provides two 4 to 20 mA analog signals proportional to each of the above ranges, in addition to a digital display and relay contacts. CSA, FM, ATEX, IECEx, CE Marking, GOST approved. SIL 3 suitable.

Dual detection ranges Sensitive to both small (ppm•meter) and large (LEL•meter) gas leaks
Performance approved Ideal for use in harsh environments
Single detection beam Improves accuracy and reduces drift
Continuous self-check Fail-to-safe operation 
Multiple communication outputs (HART, Modbus,
AMS support)
Provides complete status and control capability in the control room
Unitized display Ease of operation, reduced cost
Automatic gain control Compensates for dirty optics, rain, and fog
