ESI Smart Sensor addresses shortcomings of conventional sensors

Developed for local mining conditions to meet specific requirements for gas monitoring at fixed locations, the ESI Smart Sensor incorporates unique design features that effectively address the shortcomings of conventional sensor instrumentation.

Available from Booyco Electronics, this unit features a localised display of sensor information and can measure 15 different gases from a single controller typically including oxygen (02), carbon dioxide (CO2), flammable gases such as methane (CH4) and combustible gases such as carbon monoxide (CO). The ESI Smart Sensor can also accommodate other sensors with analogue outputs, such as air velocity sensors or smoke detectors.

A unique feature of the ESI Smart Sensor is its modular design that makes for ease of repair and calibration. If a sensor fails only this sensor unit needs to be removed, eliminating the need to open the main enclosure to install a new sensor. Similarly when the sensor calibration expires, the sensors can be replaced in situ with new pre-calibrated sensors.

Ingress protection on the ESI Smart Sensor exceeds IP56 and the instrument carries SANS IEC 60079 Part 0:2005, SANS IEC 60079 Part 11: 2007 and IEC 60529 (IP code) approvals. Also certified as EXia T4 Intrinsically Safe, the unit’s dimensions are 265 x 150 x 60 mm and it weighs 1.8 kg.

Booyco Electronics is a single source market leader that supplies quality specialised electronic safety equipment, including collision intervention systems. Its range of reliable accurate warning, locating and monitoring systems is engineered to operate in the harsh African conditions.
