Portable Gas Monitors

The GX-3R Pro is the world’s smallest 5-gas monitor weighing only 4.58 ounces and fits in the palm of your hand (2.9” W x 2.6” H x 1.06” D). It simultaneously monitors and displays 5 different gases. In addition to monitoring standard confined space gases, LEL, O2, CO, & H2S, the GX-3R Pro has a 5th channel where you can add infrared or toxic gas sensors (Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN) and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) sensors are currently available for the GX-3R Pro).

Two of the four sensor slots have interchangeable sensors providing flexible configurations, which can easily be changed in the field. RKI is pleased to announce the availability of  These 2 sensors are in stock and are the latest in toxic gas options added to the line of GX-3R Pro sensors.

Portable Single Gas

RKI Instruments
Single-Gas Monitors GP-03

The 03 Series single gas monitors are designed for LEL, O2, H2S, or CO detection. Individuals need personal protection in hazardous areas at all times without adding extra bulky equipment, and the 03 Series can provide that kind of protection at an affordable price. The GP-03, OX-03, CO-03, and HS-03 models are personal single gas monitors designed for protection from exposure to combustible hydrocarbons, oxygen deficiency, hydrogen sulfide, or carbon monoxide.

Controllers

Gas detection should not be complicated. The Beacon 110 is gas detection simplified. The Beacon 110 is a powerful, low cost fixed system controller for one point of gas detection. It is microprocessor controlled, versatile, simple to install and operate, and priced to be the industry’s best value single gas detection controller. It is capable of accepting RKI sensors directly for LEL level combustibles, Oxygen, Hydrogen Sulfide, or Carbon Monoxide. The Beacon 110 can also accept any 4-20 mA transmitter (2 or 3 wire, 24 VDC). Sensors can be mounted directly at the Beacon 110 housing, or can be wired remote from the controller.

Controller Beacon 110

The 10 amp rated relays are strong enough to directly power external alarms and horns. The digital display has backlighting and simultaneous readout of the gas type and concentration.

The Beacon 110 is also housed in a NEMA 4X rated case for a weather tight seal. This case design complies with lock out / tag out standards and can be fully secured. An external reset switch allows the alarm to be silenced from outside of the controller housing. The Beacon 110 ships complete with a wall mounting kit for easy installation.

RKI offers the industry’s widest selection of standard and toxic gas detection sensors, which can be utilized with the Beacon 110, providing gas monitoring protection for almost any application.

Stand Alone Detectors

The OX-600 is an indoor, standalone monitor that detects Oxygen (O2) with a range of 0-25.0 % volume with 0.1% increments. It’s sleek, low-profile design is equipped with a unique tri-color display, which changes color as oxygen levels reach each alarm level. The OX-600 has 2 preset alarms, and comes ready to operate with a simple wall mount bracket and 10 foot power cord.

OX-600 O2 Monitor

It is capable of operating with three different power options; 115 VAC, 24 VDC or alkaline batteries. If Oxygen is present, the user is notified by an audible alarm tone and the multicolored LED digital display. The OX-600 uses a fast responding low-cost plug-in style galvanic cell sensor. This long life sensor is field-replaceable with no special tools required. The sensor can also be remotely mounted with an optional remote sensor cable.

Wireless Gas Detectors

AirLink 6900 – Wireless Gas Detector

The RKI AirLink 6900 is a versatile truly wire free transmitter using electrochemical, PID or low-power infrared sensor elements to detect a variety of gases. Wireless, dual battery power (3.6 V Lithium-Thionyl Chloride battery) with 900 MHZ or 2.4 GHz radio options.

Magnetic switches allow for non-intrusive calibration as well as full system settings and diagnostics, while in the field. The AirLink 6900 Gas Detector represents the latest leading edge wireless technology in fixed gas detection today.

Calibration Station

Stand Alone Use

The SDM-3R is a versatile maintenance tool that automates the service of a GX-3R (Pro) portable gas monitor. This docking station can be used as a stand alone device for charging, calibration and bump testing, with all records stored automatically for future upload to a PC via USB flash drive (PC software and flash drive included).

PC-Controlled Use

Automate how you manage and service GX-3R (Pro) instruments by connecting the SDM-3R to a computer with a USB cable. With the SDM Docking Station controller software, you can simultaneously calibrate, bump test, alarm check, archive data, or charge up to ten instruments. You can also download the datalogging history from each instrument into one easy to manage location. SDM-3R stations can be manifolded together to reduce the number of demand flow regulators gas cylinders required.

Speciality

Vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP) fumigation is a technique that has been widely used for disinfection of medical facilities, pharmaceutical environments, including cleanrooms, production filling lines, and chemical fogging for the food industry.

RKI offers a reliable source of hydrogen peroxide gas detection in a continuously monitoring stationary solution with the GD-70D or as a portable solution with the SC-8000 or the Eagle gas monitors.
