Detcon (The Woodlands, TX) has announced that its environmentally bulletproof IR-700 infrared combustible hydocarbon gas detector is now certified SIL 2 capable. The device recently underwent stringent functional safety assessments by third party agency exida and was found to be in compliance with IEC61508 : 2010 Parts 1-7. In addition to the IR-700, Detcon's TP-700 H2S MOS and DM-700 toxic electrochemical gas detectors are also certified SIL 2 capable. The Model 700’s rugged framework includes an electro-polished 316 stainless steel housing with fully encapsulated electronics and dual layer surge protection. These details in design virtually eliminate the threat of outside damage to internal components due to water ingress, corrosion, vibration, and transient spikes.
