RC-SampleSmartXP-Detectable-Gases

RC Systems - SampleSmart XP - Sample Draw Gas Detection System - GAS SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES USED

by RC Systems

  • The SampleSmart XP utilizes the SenSmart 6000 Series Gas Detector, which accepts all of the sensor types that RC Systems offers:  Catalytic Bead (CB), Electro-Chemical (EC), Infrared (IR), and Photo-Ionization-Detector (PID). 
  • The table below lists all of the gases detected, with the sensor characteristics for each. If some of the gas types appear multiple times, look closely; the sensor specification differs in some way, such as the min/max span, or the sensor response time. 
  • When configuring online your 6000 Series Gas Detector with SensorPros, you will be able to choose which sensor type for a particular gas you want, based on your application.  The table below is only a partial list of the gases detected.  If a gas is not listed, please call us; we can probably help you find a solution.
