Main features

  • Double thermal stabilisation: stabilisation of entire casing and of each NDIR sensor separately - such approach provides the best thermal stabilisation (accuracy to 0.01°C), short warm up time (30 ÷ 60min) and the best accuracy of the NDIR sensors
  • Up to 6 NDIR sensors, up to 3 electrochemical cells
  • Paired up with professional gas conditioner - PGD-100
  • Large - 6.4”, high-resolution - VGA (640x480) colourful display with touch-pad
  • PC-104 industrial class computer with Windows CE operating system
  • Advanced algorithms to control analyser's work, like warming up, compensation of cross-sensitivity values, response time - all which influence the quality and performance.
  • Measurement of many additional parameters: temperatures (ambient, gas), pressures (atmospheric, differential), flow velocity (with help of Pitot tube), flow control through device and more
  • Calculation of all combustion parameters like: stack loss, combustion efficiency,excess air coefficient, dew point temperature, and more
  • Communication with PC computer via RS232C and Ethernet interfaces
  • 2x USB port for connecting commercial peripherals (mice, keyboards) and Photon add-ons (analogue outputs / inputs)
  • Optional add-ons: analogue outputs (8-channels), analogue inputs (8-channels) modules
  • Optional portable printer
  • Results stored in database - possibility to view entire measurement session in graphical form, create measurement reports, export data to csv files, and more

Optional equipment & spare parts

PGD 100 Gas conditioner

4_1

THIS ELEMENT IS ORDERED SEPARATELY, YET IT IS ESSENTIAL TO WORK WITH ANALYSER!
Photon analyser “cares” only for analysing the gas sample. Nevertheless, such sample must firstly be properly prepared. For this purpose, the Photon is always paired with powerful gas conditioner - PGD-100.
Photon communicates with, and controls PGD-100 dryer via 2.5m electric cable. Gas sample is delivered via 2.5m Tygon tube.

Ordering code:
see PGD-100 dryer section

Heated hose

4_2

THIS ELEMENT IS ORDERED SEPARATELY, YET IT IS ESSENTIAL TO WORK WITH ANALYSER!
Heated hose with heated gas filter supplies gas sample to the the analyser’s conditioning module.
Hose has M30x1 threaded connection to fix gas probe pipe. The other end has magnetic quick-coupler and electric connector to connect it with analyser.
Standard length of hose is 3m, it is possible to order other lengths of hoses.
Hose is provided with a carrying bag.

Ordering code:
see heated hoses section

Gas probe pipe

4_3

THIS ELEMENT IS ORDERED SEPARATELY, YET IT IS ESSENTIAL TO WORK WITH ANALYSER!
Exchangeable gas probe pipe mounted on the probe holder with M30x1 fastening.
It has thermocouple type K (in some configurations type S) for measurement of gas temperature and a threaded fixing cone. With the probe holder is a complete gas probe.
There are many probe pipes available. They differ in length and working temperature.
For work efficiency it is advised to own different probe pipes to be able to adjust to the measurement place.

Ordering code:
see gas probes section

Boiler’s inlet air temperature sensor

4_4

This PT500 temperature sensor on a 3m cable is used for measurement of the boiler’s inlet air. It is optional equipment. The sensor has to be connected to the Temp. Amb. socket. If this sensor is not connected Photon assumes the boiler’s inlet air temperature to be equal to the temperature measured with the NTC2k7 sensor installed in the device’s lid.

Ordering code:
Z40P-SENS-TEMP – sensor PT500 with 3m long cable

Temperature sensor for thermal stabilisation

4_5

This NTC2k7 temperature sensor with a 300mm cable is used for measurement of the surrounding air temperature. It helps to set the optimal target temperature for Photons thermal stabilisation. The sensor is connected to the Temp. Aux socket (in some units the socket is without label). The head of NTC2k7 sensor is installed in analyser's lid. For calculations, where ambient temperature is required, Photon uses readings from PT500 3m sensor (boiler's inlet air temperature sensor). In case of absence of this PT500 sensor, readings from NTC2k7 are being used.

Ordering code:
ZPH2-SENS-NTC – sensor NTC2k7 with 300mm long cable (grey)

Pitot tube

4_6

Pitot tube is used for indirect measurement of gas flow velocity (measurement with the analayser’s differential pressure sensor).
A few lengths of tubes are available. Pitot tube has 2m gas tubings to connect it with the analyser.
