The Stationary Photoionization Detector SPID2 is a continuously measuring detector for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) with an ionization potential <10.6 eV. The use of new technologies for the excitation source and the sensor allows a high stability of measurement and longer maintenance intervals. An integrated active carbon filter and the circuit sampling an automatic fresh air setup and automatic calibration are controlled.

The unit is designed and approved for use in explosive atmospheres.

The SPID2 uses a high stable hollow cathode lamp with an energy of 10.6 eV as ionization source. This lamp provides with its ceramic discharge channel a highly stable UV output and a lifetime of 8,000 h (typically 15,000 hours and more). The special design of the sensor in conjunction with automatic feeding of pollutant-free air through an activated carbon filter results in longer maintenance intervals.

The detector provides an analog (4-20 mA) output to represent the linearized and compensated measurement result in different scaling and digital (RS485-MODBUS) output which supports reading measurements and diagnostic results. The SPID2 is equipped with a graphical back-lighted display and high brightness Led’s for normal operations, failures and alarm conditions. The intuitive graphical menu guide and a non – intrusive magnetic key interface make it easy to use.
