Poison-resistant and fail-safe – the DrägerSensor® IR
DrägerSensor IR is a cost-effective alternative to catalytic bead sensors while offering several benefits: it is
poison-resistant against chemicals that can shorten a catalytic bead pellistor’s life. Long life optics result in
lower maintenance costs compared to pellistors. IR technology is inherently fail-safe, meaning no unrevealed
failures. Improved performance with excellent long-term stability and fast response times.
Easy device management via digital communication
The Dräger Polytron 8310 is equipped with digital interfaces allowing for quick and easy remote interrogation
of the transmitter’s state. Integration with existing asset management systems such as PACTware™ is possible
via DTM. In addition to the common HART® communication system, the fieldbus interfaces PROFIBUS® PA,
FOUNDATION fieldbus™ H1, and Modbus RTU are also available.
Same design, same operating principle
The Dräger Polytron 8310 belongs to the Polytron 8000 series. All transmitters in this series have the
same design and user interface. This allows for uniform operation with reduced training and maintenance
requirements. The large graphic backlit display shows status information clearly and in an easy to use format.
The measured gas concentration, selected gas type, and measuring unit are displayed during normal operation.
Colored LEDs (green, yellow and red) provide additional alarm and status information. The Polytron 8310 is
operated by means of a magnetic wand over contact surfaces.
Three relays for controlling external equipment
Upon request, the Dräger Polytron 8310 can also be supplied with three integrated relays. This enables you to
use it as an independent gas detection system with two arbitrarily adjustable concentration alarms and one fault
alarm. Audible alarms, signal lights or similar devices can thus be controlled locally without an additional cable
between the transmitter and central controller.
