Because it is a modular range, the NX can be tailored to any application or change in working practice.  As regulations or procedures evolve, modules can be removed and new features added to the existing unit.

Made entirely from stainless steel, the heavy-duty NX series is suitable for the harshest environments. Typical applications include the concrete, chemical, power and electrical industries.

Crowcon’s TXgard IS+ Intrinsically Safe Detector Now UL Certified

Global certifications allow use in Zone 0, 1 and 2 or Division 1 or 2 hazardous areas

Crowcon’s intrinsically safe TXgard-IS+ gas detector is fitted with electrochemical sensors which enable it to detect a wide range of toxic gases and oxygen. Gases detected include those commonly found in industrial applications such as carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen sulphide (H2S), chlorine (Cl2), ammonia (NH3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), sulphur dioxide (SO2) and oxygen (O2).

Already certified to ATEX* and IECEx** standards, the addition of UL*** certification means the TXgard IS+ can now be used globally, including China and South East Asia, North America and the Middle East in Zone 0, 1 or 2 or Division 1 or 2 hazardous areas when used with a safety barrier (zener barrier or galvanic isolator) ****.

Typical environments where the Txgard IS+ can be used include plastic, rubber, chemical and semiconductor manufacturing plants, water and sewage treatment plants, steel manufacturing facilities, oil and gas drilling and processing facilities, car parks and tunnels.

Tough and hard-wearing, with IP65 ingress protection, the Txgard-IS+ already has a proven track record in industrial and offshore oil and gas installations worldwide. Simple to operate, it has an intuitive display menu and keypad which enables simple maintenance and which provides comprehensive diagnostic facilities which allow true, one-person non-intrusive calibration.

The detector has configurable display options and configurable fault and inhibit currents. Also, by displaying line voltage, there is no need to access test points inside the unit. In addition, the signal current can be ramped manually to a desired value to simplify commissioning with control panels.

Sensor signals are temperature compensated and the device is compatible with virtually any 4-20mA control system. Unlike some 4-20mA gas detectors featuring LCD displays and keypads, the Txgard IS+ combines its power and signal in just two wires, so only one zener barrier is required.

* ATEX – EU Directive covering equipment for use in potentially explosive environments
** IECEx – a scheme to facilitate international trade in equipment and services for use in explosive areas
*** UL – Underwriters Laboratories Inc. The leading North American product safety certification organization, whose certifications are recognised worldwide
**** A zener barrier is an electrical safety barrier that limits the voltages and currents appearing in the hazardous location when faults occur on a circuit. A galvanic isolator is used in situations where two or more electric circuits must communicate, but their grounds may be at different potentials.

Ocean Optics XR-Series Spectrometers Cover ~200-1050 nm Wavelengths

Extended spectral range with high optical resolution fits project needs and budget

Miniature spectroscopy pioneer Ocean Optics ( has expanded the wavelength capabilities of several of its popular miniature fiber optic spectrometers. The XR-Series, available for the USB2000+, JAZ-EL2000, and USB4000, covers all wavelengths from ~200-1050 nm with the convenience and affordability of a single, monolithic spectrometer.

The new XR-1 grating option developed by Ocean Optics overcomes the traditional challenges of providing broad UV-NIR coverage in a single miniature spectrometer.  With a 500 lines/mm density, the grating delivers high performance at a budget-friendly price, without increasing the system footprint.  The XR-1 grating is available pre-configured in the USB2000+, JAZ-EL2000, and USB4000 and may also be added as an option to custom-built systems.

The XR-Series spectrometers deliver an optical resolution of ~2.0 nm (FWHM).  Ocean Optics’ proprietary order-sorting filter is applied directly to the detector to eliminate second- and third-order effects.  The 25 µm slit on the preconfigured units delivers good optical resolution for most applications. XR-Series spectrometers are a convenient single-instrument solution for setups where both UV-VIS and VIS-NIR measurements are needed, and are well suited to measurement of samples with response across the entire wavelength range, such as solar irradiance, atomic emission line measurement and some plasma applications

The Keeler Cryomatic has been engineered to create a simple to use system with a reliable freeze. Its intuitive console automatically configures itself according to the probe’s characteristics, removing the need for manual set up. To simplify the set up pre-surgery procedures, the gas pressure is automatically set by the console for either carbon dioxide (CO2) or nitrous oxide (N2O).

The control console provides clear, digital readouts of probe activity, temperature, time elapsed and gas pressure. Probe operation is controlled by a footswitch, leaving the user’s hands free at all times. The whole system is quick and easy to set up, a major advantage if experienced staff are not always available.”
