Photon S

Photon S – CEMS system with NDIR sensors

Photon S is madur’s most recent and most sophisticated apparatus.
It was created based on portable gas analyser - Photon. As its precursor it also uses NDIR gas sensors as the main measurement method - it can have 9 of them supplemented with 4 EC cells.
Along with power supply with control center and the most efficient gas dryer this modular CEMS system is available to mount in 19” open frame rack. It is tailored to a very specific demands of customer, what is possible thanks to lot of available extensions and add-ons.

Hereby tool helps to configure, in few simple steps, ready to measure analyser. It allows to select main structural components, like gas dryer, gas sensors, etc. Some elements, like probe pipes are to be selected separately. This mini-configurator, generates a list of madur codes that identifies the selected configuration. Customer may add own comments and requests. Device configuration has to be verified by pressing the Refresh button in the Order Summary section. Order summary can be send to our sale engineers for validation and in order to obtain price offer.


Presenting prices principles

Analyser’s standard equipment supplied along with the device.

Each installation of the Photon S analyser is unique and requires individual approach to customer’s requirements.
Generally, the installation consists of three main modules each in 19’’ rack:

  • Control module with colorful display and touch panel
  • Gas conditioning module
  • Measurement module

Besides, the necessary part of the CEMS system are:

  • 19” frame or cabinet for installation of aforesaid modules
  • Gas probe pipe
  • Heated hose

supplemental equipment - ordered separately, but essential to work with the analyser

Heated hose

4_1

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.
Standard length of hose is 3m, it is possible to order other lengths of hoses.
It is especially advised when dealing with high humidity and SO2, NO2 and other gases highly reactive with water.

Ordering code:
see heated hoses section

Gas probe pipe

4_2

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 heated hose is a complete gas probe.
There are many probe pipes available. They differ in length and working temperature.

Ordering code:
see gas probes section

Stationary gas probe

4_3

THIS ELEMENT IS ORDERED SEPARATELY, YET IT IS ESSENTIAL TO WORK WITH ANALYSER!
Gas probe designed specially for stationary purposes. Probe is available in different lengths and is equipped with suitable holder (different types are available).
Optionally it may also be equipped with:

  • Thermocouple for measurements of gas temperature.
  • Sintered stainless-steel filter (cleanable) - especially recommended when dealing with high concentration of dust and soot.
  • ”Blow-back” cleaning option - valve that allows to switch between measured gas and the compressed air inlet that is used for cleaning the sintered filter.

Ordering code:
see stationary probe section

Optional equipment

Pitot tube

4_4

Pitot tube is used for indirect measurement of gas flow velocity (measurement with the analayser’s differential pressure sensor).
Few length of tubes are available. Pitot tube has 2m gas tubings to connect it with the analyser.
It may be provided with a suitable holder for stationary purposes

Ordering code:
Pitot tube 500mm: Z00-PITOT-5002
Pitot tube 800mm: Z00-PITOT-8002
Holder: Z00-PITOT-HA4

Heated filter

0

Heated filter is installed right after the gas probe. It is best when it is paired with heated hose to prevent vapour from condensing.

Ordering code:
see heated filter section

WiFi communication interfaces

4_6

Optional interface allows to communicate wirelessly with Photon S analyser
