New Call-to-action

Designed to monitor and alarm for ethylene (C2H4) levels in ambient air near agricultural sites, food & fruit storage, and controlled atmosphere storage, etc. The ethylene sensor is of the disposable electrochemical type with an expected life of between 3-4 years. The sensor needs no warm up time and is ready to go as soon as the monitor is turned on.

Model 596DR1 has one remote sensor which is electrically connected to the main cabinet.
