Hydrogen Gas Detector is available for AC/DC applications.
October 18, 2013 -
Available for AC and DC power sources, HGD-2000 monitors hydrogen gas buildup in storage rooms and facilities that house batteries. If concentration of hydrogen in air surrounding sensor reaches 1% by volume, yellow LED illuminates and 1% internal relay closes; 4 sec delay prevents false activation. If concentration reaches 2%, red LED flashes, internal 80 db warning alarm sounds, and 2% internal relay closes.

Hydrogen Gas Detector for AC and DC Applications
Protect from hydrogen gas buildup in battery rooms and facilities in any industry
Milwaukee, Wisconsin — The HGD-2000 Hydrogen Gas Detector by Eagle Eye Power Solutions is now available for DC power sources in addition to AC power. The DC-powered HGD-2000 gas detectors are commonly found in telecoms, in addition to utilities and battery charging and storing rooms. To learn more about the battery industry’s most popular mounted gas detector please visit: http://www.eepowersolutions.com/products/hgd-2000-hydrogen-gas-detector/.
The Eagle Eye HGD-2000 Hydrogen Gas Detector allows the user to monitor hydrogen gas buildup in storage rooms and facilities that house batteries - including forklifts, golf carts, backup power supplies, and battery charging stations. Lead-acid batteries on charge emit hydrogen gas after reaching the 80% recharge point. When mixed with enough air, hydrogen becomes a highly flammable gas that can ignite easily with just a spark, destroying equipment and harming personnel. The lower explosive level (LEL) for hydrogen is 4.1% by volume. The dangers of hydrogen gas explosion are eliminated by using the HGD-2000 hydrogen gas detector.
The HGD-2000 is simple and easy-to-use and easy-to-install for both AC & DC power sources. If the concentration of hydrogen gas in the air surrounding the sensor reaches 1% by volume, the yellow LED will light and the 1% internal relay will close. A four second delay prevents false activation. If the concentration reaches 2%, the red LED will flash, the internal 80 db warning alarm will sound, and the 2% internal relay will close. The HGD-2000 is an inexpensive, preventative tool for equipment and personnel protection where hydrogen gas buildup can occur.
