The Draeger Polytron® 8310 IR is an advanced explosion proof transmitter for the detection of combustible gases in the lower explosion limit (LEL). It uses an infrared DraegerSensor® IR that can be configured for methane, propane, or ethylene. The Draeger Polytron® 8310 IR is a cost-effective alternative to catalytic bead sensors while offering several benefits: It is poison-resistant against chemicals that can shorten a catalytic bead pellistor’s life. Long life optics result in lower maintenance costs compared to pellistors. IR technology is inherently fail-safe, meaning no unrevealed failures. Improved performance with excellent long-term stability and fast response times.
The Draeger Polytron 8310 is equipped with digital interfaces allowing for quick and easy remote interrogation of the transmitter’s state. Integration with existing asset management systems such as PACTware™ is possible via DTM. In addition to the common HART® communication system, the fieldbus interfaces PROFIBUS® PA, FOUNDATION fieldbus™ H1, and Modbus RTU are also available.
The Draeger Polytron 8310 belongs to the Polytron 8000 series. All transmitters in this series have the same design and user interface. This allows for uniform operation with reduced training and maintenance requirements.
