CC33 Transmitter aluminum
Transmitter for flammable gases and vapors with ignition protection type "d"
If you need to safely monitor combustible gases and vapors in Ex zones, the CC33 transmitter is an extremely durable and reliable solution - even in demanding conditions, such as in industrial production plants. The CC33 can communicate its measured values and status indications either on analog (4-20 mA) or digital (RS-485) signal. The current measured gas concentration is also shown on an LC display. Due to the special stack effect, the response times of the CC33 are very short which ensures quick warnings in case of explosion hazards. Three relay outputs provide additional alarm options. In combination with one of GfG’s reliable controllers, the CC33 can either be installed in a new gas detection system or retrofitted into an existing one.
The CC33 uses catalytic combustion (CC) to detect flammable gases and vapors such as methane, propane and hydrogen as well as ammonia. Their durable sensors make transmitters of the 33 series an economical solution for detecting a wide range of combustible gases in the measuring ranges 0 to 100 % LEL and 0 to 4 vol % (NH3). Its automatic temperature compensation and the linearization of the measuring signals ensure high measuring accuracy. In the event of an alarm, two red LEDs light up and the display color changes to red. Three optional relay outputs can then be used to automatically initiate emergency measures, such as the explosion-proof buzzer, visual warnings like flashing lights or ventilation measures.
Communication and service
Signals are transmitted via the analog industrial standard (4-20 mA) or the digital RS-485 interface (Modbus protocol). The CC33 uses two status LEDs to indicate its operating status. It also features two additional alarm LEDs and three relay LEDs. Service and adjustments can be carried out on site using a magnetic pen and three magnetic buttons behind 10 mm thick bullet-proof glass (one-person adjustment). The pre-adjusted sensors can be easily replaced thanks to Smart Sensor technology. The multi-color backlit display shows the current measured value, status notifications and the CC33's menu. Test gases for function tests can be inserted via a calibration adapter. If the device is mounted in a location that is difficult to reach, an optional remote calibration adapter can alternatively be used. This will not affect the transmitter’s stack effect.
Explosion and device protection
The CC33 is approved for use up to Ex zone 1 and meets the requirements of ignition protection type "d" (flameproof enclosure). The epoxy-coated aluminum housing and Viton seals guarantee a long operating time even in the toughest conditions. The transmitter is protected against the ingress of dust and water according to IP54. If required, the protection class can be raised to IP67 by means of additional thread seals.
