The AutroPoint HC300PL is a diffusion-based, infrared combustible gas detector that provides continuous, fixed monitoring of flammable hydrocarbon gases from 0 to 100% Lower Flammable Limit (LFL).
A key feature of the HC300PL IR gas detector is the built-in PowerLoop system technology, enabling the detector to communicate with AutroSafe Integrated Fire and Gas (IFG) systems on a single pair of wires. This compatibility, called the PowerLoop technology, is a two-wire power and signalling bus connected in a ring topology and galvanically isolated from the rest of the system, saving cable cost and weight. Each detector has a built-in short-circuit isolator, hence no detectors will be lost because of a single break or short-circuit in the PowerLoop lines. All alarms and faults are signalled via the PowerLoop. The detector does not require any local power supply.
Ideally suited for protection of challenging on/offshore oil and gas facilities and other downstream hydrocarbon applications, the HC300PL is globally certified for use in Class I, Divisions 1 and 2, and Zones 1 and 2 hazardous areas. In addition, the stainless
steel construction, sapphire optics, and modular design all combine to deliver industrial grade hardness along with easy installation and the lowest cost of ownership available.
The AutroPoint HC300PL is capable of detecting hundreds of flammable hydrocarbon gases and vapors. The detector is performance certified to methane, propane, ethylene, and butane, and is shipped from the factory set and calibrated to one of these gases.
Numerous additional operating parameters are programmable via digital communication or the optional hand-held communicator.
