Detcon’s (The Woodlands, TX) rugged new CXT-Series wireless gas detection sensors are designed for use in heavy industrial environments and are especially suitable for mobile applications. These “environmentally bulletproof” field devices include fully encapsulated sensor electronics housed in a stainless steel enclosure, thereby eliminating potential damage that may be caused from water ingress and vibration, says the company. The CXT is equipped with one of two sensor technologies – electrochemical to monitor toxic gases and oxygen, and infrared for combustible hydrocarbons. Power is supplied by a rechargeable Smart Battery Pack or disposable battery options. When powered by the Smart Battery Pack, infrared sensors can work continuously for more than six months, and indefinitely with accompanying solar panels.
