The RKI S2 series gas sensor/transmitters are highly reliable and very cost effective for the detection of common gas hazards. The transmitters for LEL, H2 Specific, Oxygen, H2S, CO2, and Carbon Monoxide are explosion-proof with flame arrestors, and approved for use in hazardous areas (Class l, Groups B, C, D). An optional non-explosion proof version is available for oxygen, H2S, CO, and CO2 in non-hazardous atmospheres. LEL sensors are available using catalytic bead and infrared technologies.
The toxic sensors are electrochemical type plug-in sensors, which provide high specificity, fast response, and long life. The plug-in design allows quick replacement in the field with no tools required. Toxic sensors are designed for use in Class I, Div. 2 hazardous locations.
The S2 transmitters can be used either indoors or outdoors. The flame arrestors for the explosion-proof versions utilize a patented coating which make them water repellent. Splash guards are also available for use in very wet environments. An optional stainless steel junction box is available for corrosive environments.
