PHD6 features real-time readings

sperianDec. 5, 2008 - Smithfield, RI -  Biosystems’ PHD6 is a new multi-gas detector from Sperian Instrumentation, part of Sperian Fire. It senses and identifies many different gases and volatile organic compounds such as benzene, diesel, alcohol and thousands of chemicals. It has five sensor ports, up to six channels of detection, and more than 20 sensor options including PID and Infrared.

Sperian Fire built the PHD6 to be reliable and sophisticated while keeping it easy to use with minimal training. Day-to-day detector operations are controlled entirely through a single mode button. A status bar on the display with easily recognizable icons gives the user real time readings of everything from time to calibration status. Clear, built-in menus allow advanced users to configure the detector in the field.
The PHD6 is constructed of an engineered polycarbonate frame with a rubber overmold, making it tough and durable. Power for up to 24 hours comes from interchangeable alkaline (3 AA) or Li-Ion rechargeable battery packs. A manual sample draw kit is included and a motorized sample draw pump is available.
New to most fire departments is an accompanying express dock, the IP6. The dock logs data, calibrates common PHD6 configurations and self-tests in less than a minute. It not only simplifies the procedures but saves on the cost of calibration gas. An IP6 is often used with several PHD6 detectors, and IP6 docks at several stations can be tied into a central computer for consolidated record-keeping.
