Advanced gas detection technology meets modern demands

The need for effective gas detection solutions is a critical concern across various industries.

Teledyne Gas & Flame Detection has responded to this need with the introduction of the iTrans 2 fixed gas detector, a device that stands out for its versatility and performance.

This advanced detector offers smart sensor capabilities, supporting an intelligent electronics platform that enables detection from a single head with both readings displayed on the standard-issue LED and display.

iTrans 2: a comprehensive solution for diverse applications

The iTrans 2 is designed to detect explosive, toxic, or asphyxiant gases.

It accepts infrared, catalytic bead, or electrochemical sensors, making it a comprehensive solution for a wide range of applications.

The device is configurable with various sensors, including a 0-100% volume methane infrared sensor for bio-gas applications and CO2 infrared sensors ranging from 0.5% to 100% volume.

All sensors are pre-calibrated using smart technology for automatic sensor recognition and data transfer.

Efficient and flexible installation options

The iTrans 2 boasts efficient installation options, suitable for a vast array of applications through common configurations, including 3-wire (4-20mA) and 4-wire (digital ModBus) models.

These configurations allow full utilisation of the gas detector’s features and compatibility with all iTrans 2 sensors.

Additionally, the device offers analogue 4-20mA and digital RS-485 Modbus outputs, with an optional HART communication protocol for remote communication.

Teledyne’s robust design for diverse environments

The robust design of the iTrans 2 ensures its suitability for heavy industry applications as well as smaller systems.

The housing is available in epoxy-coated aluminium or an optional 316 stainless steel version for corrosive environments.

With certifications from CSA, ATEX, IECEx, INMETRO, CCC, and China Ex, the iTrans 2 is equipped for a range of sectors, including oil and gas, utilities, petrochemical, water and wastewater treatment, and food and beverage production.

Innovative features for enhanced safety

The iTrans 2’s microprocessor-controlled transmitters can operate in a stand-alone mode or as part of a multi-point system.

Optional on-board relays enable the activation of alarms, horns, or fans and can shut down a system without return wiring to a central control panel.

This feature enhances the safety and operational efficiency of the device.
