EC28 i Transmitter

Intrinsically Safe for Toxic Gases, O2 and H2

If you need to monitor toxic gases, oxygen or hydrogen in areas particularly at risk of explosion, the intrinsically safe EC28 i transmitter in combination with one of GfG‘s controllers is a reliable and cost-effective solution. The power supply and transmission of the measured values are carried out via two-wire cabling.

Intrinsically safe operation
Due to its intrinsically safe build, the EC28 i can be used even in areas with a particularly high risk of explosion. A safety barrier (SB1 or Zener barrier; optionally available) has to be connected between the transmitter and the programmable logic controller (PLC) to convert the supply voltage to 24 V DC. This prevents the power lines from igniting within Ex zones. The intrinsic safety of the EC28 i is ATEX-certified and makes it suitable for applications up to Ex zone 0.

Communication and service
The EC28 i communicates via 4-20 mA signal. The Smart Sensor technology enables quick and easy sensor replacement. Adjustments can be made using the RC2 remote control (one-person calibration).

RC2 remote control (optional)
Gases like ammonia and hydrogen are lighter than air. Transmitters with these sensors are therefore installed near the ceiling. To simplify servicing them, these transmitters can be equipped with a permanently installed cable that connects the RC2 remote control to the transmitter for maintenance work, meaning adjustments can be made from ground level. The display of the RC2 remote control shows the same information that would be shown by the EC28 versions with a display. This makes inspection, maintenance and calibration much easier.

Reliable measurement & minimal operating costs
The sensor and built-in temperature compensation guarantee high measuring accuracy. The long sensor service life and low maintenance requirements ensure minimal operating costs.
