The PurgEye® 100
Another first for Huntingdon Fusion Techniques, is the integration of a tripod mount facility in the housing of the instruments. Monitors can now be located securely in anaccessible viewing position without having to resort to additional clamping fixtures and eliminating the risk of instruments falling to the ground, often from great heights.
Protective Rubber Housing
In the event that customers have a policy about instrument protection and security, HFT does provide a rubber housing as an additional accessory with the PurgEye® 100.
Greater Digit size
The digits are 41% larger on the PurgEye® 100. This means that they can be seen more clearly by the operator and from longer distances.
Accuracy at low level readings
The PurgEye® 100 has an algorithm in the software to correct the reading at the low oxygen levels to ensure accuracy and repeatability of readings. As mentioned already above, most low cost Oxygen Monitors are made for oxygen measurement at breathing levels for personal safety rather than welding and they are unable to read accurately as oxygen levels fall below the atmospheric reading of 20.94%.
Low Battery Indicator
When the battery life is too low to provide sufficient power to run the PurgEye® 100 correctly, a battery symbol appears in the screen/touch screen warning the operator to change the battery.
Replace Sensor Indicator
Similarly, a sensor symbol will appear on the screen with alerting the operator change the oxygen sensor. This particular feature is a great advantage to the user, because immediately that symbol appears, the user has time to have his purchasing department obtain a new one, without having to stop a job while waiting for delivery for a new sensor, as would be the case for other types of oxygen measuring instrument.
HFT old style instruments and other oxygen monitors have a complicated sensor wiring system that involves plugging in of wires and clips. The New Style PurgEye® 100 replacement sensor has no wires but connects easily by simply plugging it on the brass terminal pins located within the housing.
Due to expected demand and pre-order levels, it has been possible to keep the selling prices of these UK Manufactured and CE marked units the same the same as the obsolescent versions.
