Series 1610B Gas Detector

CAPITAL CONTROLS® Single Point Gas Detector, Series 1610B provides continuous detection of Chlorine, Sulfur Dioxide and Ammonia gas in a normally clean air environment. 

In General

CAPITAL CONTROLS® Single Point Gas Detectors are ideal for protection of personnel and property wherever Chlorine, Sulfur Dioxide or Ammonia is unloaded, stored or used.The sensor responds immediately to the presence of gas, and 
quickly recovers after the gas has cleared. The sensor is also designed to eliminate false alarms caused by interference gases and environmental conditions.Series 1610B design includes protection against radio frequency /electromagnetic 
interferences (RFI/EMI) typically present at industrial and municipal plants.

The modular design for the gas detector provides easy installation of the receiver and sensor module.

• Maintenance-free, longlife sensor
• Dual alarm output for remote warning and device control
• Audible and visual alarms
• Rapid response to Chlorine, Sulfur Dioxide or Ammonia

• RFI/EMI protection
• Optional power back up

Brief Specification:

The single point gas detection system for (Chlorine) (Sulfur Dioxide) (Ammonia) shall consist of an electrochemical type sensor (requiring no chemical additions), housed in a corrosion-resistant, NEMA 12 enclosure suitable for wall mounting. In the presence of gas, a current flow will develop and be transmitted through electrical wiring to the receiver. The maximum separation between the receiver and sensor shall be 1000 feet (305 meters).
The receiver shall process and display incoming signals from the sensor module, and be housed in a NEMA 12 enclosure suitable for wall mounting. The receiver shall contain the following components: a power switch and LED indicators for power and ready; setpoint alarm level, fieldset via push button on the front of the receiver and indicated by on the color bar graph by a flashing bar segment; an LED alarm indicator and annunciator with corresponding contact; an LED malfunction indicator with jumper-selectable manual or automatic reset relay contact; a RESET button for clearing alarm and malfunction circuits; a timer for sensor stabilization, and an LED bar graph display in the range of 0-10 ppm for Chlorine and Sulfur Dioxide; 0-50 ppm and 0-100 ppm for Ammonia. A 4-20 mAdc output signal shall be provided to transmit scanned levels.

The minimum detectable concentration of Chlorine or Sulfur Dioxide gas shall be 0.5 ppm by volume. The response time shall be 60 seconds for 80% of range to 10 ppm gas at 20°C, after stabilization. Protection shall be provided against radio frequency/electromagnetic interference typically present at industrial and municipal plants. The unit shall operate from a (120 Vac) (240) 50/60 Hz single-phase power supply. Battery terminals shall be provided for use in the event of a power failure. The gas detector shall be CAPITAL CONTROLS® Series 1610B.

An optional power backup shall be provided, with internal 18 Vdc battery and shall automatically provide power in the event of a power failure. No manual switching shall be required. The unit shall automatically and continuously recharge to supply maximum support to the gas detector and/or the remote indicator. The power backup shall be
