Life-Long Sensor with little Maintenance Requirement
The PurgEye® Desk now comes complete with PurgeNet™, which controls all Automatic Welding Systems as well as Orbital Welders, causing them to switch on and off for example when oxygen level rises too high or falls to low.
For control of Automatic Welding Equipment by a Weld Purge Monitor®, the relevant cable accessory will be used. At that point, the Monitor will switch off your automatic welding system if by any chance the oxygen level should rise above your pre-set limit, to prevent the risk of weld oxidation. The Monitor will switch the welding system back on, once the excess oxygen has been purged away.
The IP66 Rated (Environmental Protected) PurgeAlarm™ displays a red indicator, only if the PurgEye® has warmed up, the alarm enabled and is reading a greater value than the alarm threshold set by the user.
An optional green indicator can be fitted above the standard red indicator and will illuminate only if the alarm is active and reading a value lower than the alarm threshold set but the user. A sounder is available as an option to provide an audible alarm instead of the red light.
PurgeNet™ also works with PurgeLog™ to easily transfer weld purge data for Quality Control purposes.
The PurgEye® 500 Desk Weld Purge Monitor® is small, lightweight and portable. The automatic fault finding diagnostics can detect and report a number of possible faults.
Now with an OLED (organic light emitting diode) display, the PurgEye® 500 Desk Weld Purge Monitor® gives sharper, brighter and clearer readings for viewing at longer distances than before.
The monitor is menu driven by two of the four buttons on the front panel and it has an internal alarm with high and low points for oxygen level that can be set with the other two buttons.
The rugged, high frequency (HF) proof instrument measures and clearly indicates actual oxygen levels from 1,000 down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm).
The PurgEye® 500 Desk Weld Purge Monitor® incorporates an automatic internal audible alarm in the event of sudden oxygen level increase, or when the oxygen level reaches the lowest required point. The oxygen levels can be set by the operator.
The integral electro-mechanical pump for extracting a gas sample works automatically where it is required to deliver a constant flow of exhaust purge gas over the sensor. The PurgEye® 500 Desk Weld Purge Monitor® comes with a unique, fast response, long life sensor with little to no maintenance requirement. Special attention has been paid to electrical shielding to avoid interference.
