Biosystems PhD5 Gas
From Sperian Instruments now Honeywell Analytics
Up to 5 Gases Simultaneously
||The Biosystems PhD5
monitors up to five atmospheric hazards simultaneously,
including oxygen, combustible gas, and up to three channels
of toxic gas detection.
Choose from a wide
variety of toxic sensors; including Biosystems' innovative
"Duo-Tox" two-channel CO/H2S sensor to measure
both carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulfide when both hazards
are present without cross interference.
Sensors available include:
purpose "Duo-Tox" CO/H2S
Dioxide (non-specific) (ClO2)
sensitivity to hydrogen (CO-H)
Dioxide (specific) (ClO2)
Dioxide, extended range (SO2-EXT)
The Biosystems PhD5 is housed in a rugged, metal-plated
case designed to stand up to the most demanding environments.
While all procedures necessary for day-to-day operation, including
fully automatic calibration adjustment, are still controlled through
a single button, an easy-to-read graphics display and navigation
keys to make the PhD5 even easier to use than earlier
detectors may be ordered with or without datalogging. Datalogging
PhD5 detectors may be additionally equipped with Biosystems'
unique "Touch ID" automatic memory download system. The system
uses small, nearly indestructible memory buttons to store user
ID and location information for the environment being monitored.
It even stores the language preferences of the instrument user.
The inexpensive buttons can be attached to worker ID badges, key
rings, or permanently mounted to the external structures of frequently
entered confined spaces. All you need to do is touch the built-in
reader to the button to automatically download the stored
information. Keeping good records is a critical part of every
confined space program. With "Touch ID" keeping good records is
made easy with the touch of a button!
The Ultimate Confined Space Gas
at an affordable price:
to use: All procedures necessary for day-to-day operation,
including automatic calibration adjustment, are controlled through
a single On / Off "Mode" button.
package; rugged design: The PhD5 is completely
sealed against the elements. The rugged metal-plated case is
designed to minimize radio frequency interference.
sensors / five channels of detection:Choose from O2,
LEL, and a wide selection of substance-specific toxic sensors;
or choose Biosystems' innovative new "Duo-Tox" two-channel CO/H2S
sensor for the simultaneous measurement of both CO and
H2S without cross interference!
calibration adjustment: "One Button Auto Calibration" is
available any time while the PhD5 is in normal operation.
All you have to do is press the "Mode" button, attach the adapter,
and flow gas to the sensors. All the adjustments are made automatically.
NiCad or alkaline battery packs: Either type of snap-in
pack provides up to 12 hours of continuous operation.
with "Touch ID": PhD5 detectors may be ordered
with ot without datalogging. Datalogging instruments may be
additionally equipped with Biosystems' unique "Touch ID" automatic
memory download system. "Touch ID" buttons store user ID, location
information, and even the language preferences of individual
users. With "Touch ID" keeping good records is yours with the
touch of a button!
Ordering information: Each PhD5 detector is shipped
complete with leather case, carrying strap, hand-aspirated sample
draw kit, reference manual, quick reference card, and training video.
Alkaline PhD5 detectors include an alkaline battery pack
and a set of 3 AA disposable batteries. NiCad detectors include
a NiCad battery pack and a charger, as well as a spare alkaline
battery pack and a set of batteries. Add "A" or "N" to the part
number to specify "Alkaline" or "NiCad". Add "D" to include "Datalogging".
Add "T" to include both datalogging and "Touch ID". Add "C" to the
part number to order as a complete "Confined Space Kit" which includes
calibration gas, regulator, fittings, and foam-lined carrying case.
