The Honeywell Sensepoint XCD fixed gas detector is used to monitor areas where flammable gases, toxic gases and oxygen deficiency may pose hazards to working environments. Honeywell Sensepoint XCD detectors offer high performance and reliability and are designed for a broad spectrum of industrial applications with a comprehensive choice of features and benefits in a truly cost effective package.
The Sensepoint XCD uses three instantly recognizable colors to indicate status on a large tri-color backlit LCD. This allows anyone to clearly see the status of any detector. Steady green indicates normal operation, flashing yellow indicates fault and flashing red indicates alarm.
All detectors are supplied preconfigured and include (2) programmable alarm relays, 1 programmable fault relay, as well as a 4-20mA output and MODBUS. There are three different types of the XCD transmitter for use with three different families of sensors.
The mV type transmitter is for use with the mV family of XCD sensors including catalytic sensors to detect flammable gases and infrared (IR) sensors for detection of hydrocarbon gases. Two IR hydrocarbon sensors are available; one linearised to methane and one linearised to propane. the propane version has linear cross sensitivities factors for ethylene, butane and pentane. There is also an IR CO2 sensor available.
The EC type transmitter is for use with the EC family of XCD sensors including carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen dioxide and hydrogen. The oxygen transmitter is for use with the oxygen XCD sensors.
A transmitter can auto-recognize any sensor from within its sensor family. The sensor simply plugs into the bottom of the transmitter and the transmitter automatically configures itself accordingly.
Please consider these optional accessories.
This product can be used in the following applications:
The Background: Our customer is a chemical plant in which methane is sometimes off-gassed during one of their processes. They require a means of monitoring the levels of methane and to trigger an alarm if levels exceed safe limits.
The Problem: The customer requires a fixed solution which can provide measurement values along with alarm capabilities. The application also requires hazardous area classification.
The Solution: We recommended the Honeywell Sensepoint XCD with an LEL sensor. The Sensepoint XCD has two alarm relays, 4-20mA output, and comes standard with ATEX/IEC Ex certification. The customer was so happy they ordered another Sensepoint XCD to monitor H2S at another location in their facility.
