The XTP601 from Michell Instruments is the latest addition to its range of oxygen analysers. Based on the highly stable thermo-paramagnetic sensor, the XTP601 provides accurate measurements of oxygen levels in various background gases.
Capable of measuring Oxygen from 0-1% up to 0-25% and suppressed zero ranges – such as 90-100% – the analyser provides solutions for applications ranging from biogas plants to monitoring blanketing gases in oil tankers.
The XTP601 is configurable to suit specific applications and budgets with three options: The blind transmitter version, transmitter with status LEDs and full display analyser. All of these options may be rated for either safe or hazardous area use. Hazardous area classifications are available for ATEX, IEC Ex with CCSAUS pending approval.
The full display version of the XTP601 has a touch screen interface to enable easy operation without needing to remove the lid. Users can calibrate, change settings and interrogate the instrument in the hazardous area without the need for a ‘hot permit’.
Menus allow access to information on oxygen concentration, analyser status, a graph showing oxygen trends over a user-defined time period, alarm history, minimum and maximum concentrations and other parameters to aid diagnosis of plant conditions.
Free software is available for the XTP601 to enable users to monitor, operate and calibrate any version of the instrument remotely via a PC or control system.
