Item # Model 460N7MC, Continuous Process Analyzer for Sulfur Dioxide by Infrared Detector, Wall Mounted NEMA7 UL/CSA Explosion-proof with Non-intrusive Magnetic Calibration, Class 1 Div 1 Group BCD

The Nova 460 Series SO2 analyzers utilize a reliable microprocessor-based non-dispersive infrared detector specific to SO2. In operation, the internal sample pump draws the sample gas through the filter/condensate trap, secondary filter, flow meter, and then on to the infrared detector. The detector output is digitally linearized and then displayed as percent or PPM SO2 on the digital meter. The output is also available as an analog or digital signal.

Cabinet: Wall Mounted NEMA7 UL/CSA Explosion-proof with Non-intrusive Magnetic Calibration, Class 1 Div 1 Group BCD
