Sensepoint XCD Detectors Monitor Gas Hazards

The Sensepoint XCD range of detectors from Honeywell monitors flammable, toxic and oxygen gas hazards in potentially explosive atmospheres, both indoors and outdoors. Users can modify detector operation using the LCD and magnet switches without ever needing to open the unit. This enables one-man, non-intrusive operation and reduces routine maintenance times and costs. A tri-colour backlit LCD indicates the unit's status at a glance, even from a distance.

A steady green backlight indicates normal operation, flashing yellow indicates fault and flashing red indicates an alarm. All detectors are supplied pre-configured and include two programmable alarm relays, one programmable fault relay and an industry-standard 4-20mA output (sink or source selectable) and Modbus. The scale, range, relay operation, alarm set point and electronic tag number of the detector can be adjusted using the transmitter's LCD and non-intrusive magnetic switches.

Outputs are automatically inhibited during adjustment, thus reducing the risk of false alarm at the control panel during maintenance. Sensepoint XCD features an integral mounting plate for surface mounting or can be mounted to a horizontal or vertical pipe using the optional pipe mounting bracket. Electrical installation can be made using either conduit or cable with suitable mechanical protection. Two M20 or 3/4in NPT entries are provided (depending on certification). A weatherproof cap is also included for use in harsh outdoor conditions.

Other optional accessories include sunshade/deluge protection, a duct mounting kit, a collecting cone and a remote-mounting sensor socket. The company claims that Sensepoint XCD is simple to install and provides fast routine operation by removing the need for hot work permits in hazardous areas. Using replaceable plug-in sensors, downtime is also reduced and ongoing costs are minimised through the use of poison-resistant flammable sensors, poison-immune infrared hydrocarbon sensors and patented Surecell toxic sensors.
