Now exhibiting at the Texas A&M Instrumentation Symposium

Foxboro's Simrad GD10 is an infrared point detector for use in flammable gas applications, oil drilling and waste disposal facilities. Typical calibrations for the GD10 include: 0-100% LEL Methane, 0-100% LEL Propane, 0-100% volume Methane, and 0-10,000 ppm CO2. The detector can be calibrated for other gases. Depending on the wavelength and the gas response to IR, customization of the GD10 is possible.

The GD10 is calibrated at the factory for the gas of choice. The system uses a compensation detector in addition to the main detector, eliminating the need for field recalibration.

The solid-state silicon based infrared source is electronically chopped, eliminating the need for moving parts. Even with 70 percent reduction in transmittance caused by dirt accumulation, all functions are maintained.

The detector has been designed to be interchangeable with catalytic detectors using the existing cabling and a separate bridge interface.
