Abstract:
Detector Electronics Corporation (Det-Tronics), a world leader in industrial fire detection, gas detection, and hazard mitigation systems, announces that its Nanotechnology Metal Oxide Semiconductor hydrogen sulfide gas (NTMOS H2S) detector has earned approval for use in locations that require an ingress protection rating of IP66/67, ideal for petrochemical, oil and gas applications (http://ntmos.det-tronics.com). Det-Tronics is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

Det-Tronics Adds IP66/67 Approval to Existing Ultra-Fast Hydrogen Sulfide Gas Detector: Detector Approved for Class I, Div 1 Locations Including Locations That Require IP66/67

Minneapolis, MN | Posted on January 11th, 2012

This rating was achieved as a result of the detector's robust mechanical design and indicates that the gas detector is protected against dust and forceful water during operation.

"We've combined high-performance functionality with simplicity. The ingress protection filter and guard protect the detector in tough offshore situations and are fully replaceable in the field," said Charles Hoff, Product Manager, Det-Tronics.

The new certification joins the list of other previously obtained approvals and certifications for the NTMOS H2S gas detector, including CE, CSA, ATEX, IECEx, FM tested and certified to ISA-92.0.01.

In addition to multiple certifications, the NTMOS boasts a life-saving, speed-of-response performance that detects H2S in six seconds (T20) and delivers a proper detection solution in challenging environments where electrochemical sensing technologies are not preferred.
