Michell Oxygen Analyzer Approved for Hazardous Area and General Purpose Use in the United States and Canada

Press release date: August 18, 2014

Rowley, MA –¬†The Michell Instruments XTP601 Oxygen Analyzer has CCSAUS certification making it approved for use in both hazardous¬† and general purpose areas in the US and Canada. The instrument also carries ATEX and IEC Ex certification, broadening its global hazardous area coverage.

The XTP601 uses thermo-paramagnetic technology to make accurate and stable measurements of oxygen in background gases such as hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and air as well as hydrocarbon gases. It is capable of measuring oxygen ranges from 0-1% up to 0-25%. Typical hazardous area applications include monitoring of inert or blanketing gases in refining, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. General purpose applications include inert gas generators and breathing air.

The analyzer, which is housed in a tough metal case, is available in three versions: a blind transmitter, a unit with status LEDS or a full-display unit. The full display version has a touch-screen interface which allows through-the-glass interaction eliminating the need to remove the analyzer cover to actuate its functions.

All versions are supplied with two 4-20mA outputs, two concentration alarms, Modbus RTU over RS485 protocol and application software as standard.
