Honeywell Biosystems PhD6 Key Features

PhD6 Detector Being Used at A Utility Installation

PhD6 Being Used at a Utility Installation

  • 5 Sensor Ports & 19 Sensor Options With 19 sensor choices, including PID, IR-CO2 and CH4, conventional LEL, oxygen and 15 different toxic gas sensors including Duo-Tox, the Biosystems PhD6 can be configured for just about any use.
  • PID Sensor Option PID sensor monitors for hundreds of known VOC's.
  • IR CO2 Sensor Option For breweries, wineries and anywhere accumulations of CO2 can be an issue.
  • LEL Sensor Option A catalytic hot-bead LEL sensor is available for the detection of combustible gases and vapors.
  • Electrochemical Sensor Option Choose from 14 different toxic gas sensors.
  • IR CH4 Sensor Option Poison-proof technology for use in situations where a conventional LEL sensor can fail.
  • Durable The PhD6 is enclosed in a solid polycarbonate case with a TRP (rubber) overmold, so it's both tough and easy to handle
  • Interchangeable Battery Packs Both Li-Ion and Alkaline battery packs offer up to 24 hour run times.
  • Dual Audible Alarms that Stand Out The new dual audible alarms are unlike anything you've ever heard from a gas detector - and rated at 92 dB.
  • Status Bar with Easily Recognized Symbols Icons let the user know the status of the instrument. A heartbeat symbol beats every few seconds to let the user know the instrument is functioning normally. Calibration is shown with a gas cylinder icon coupled with a triangular warning symbol.
  • IQ Dock™ Compatibility Reduce labor costs, automate record keeping and save up to 60% on calibration gas all at the same time with the IQ6 Dock.
  • Built-In IrDA Port For Easy Downloads Every PhD6 includes a built-in IrDA port that allows the instrument to be configured with a PC. This allows instruments with the Datalogger upgrade to be downloaded in the field to retrieve data on calibration and exposure levels.
  • Intuitive Menu-Driven Instrument Configuration Select from the Main Menu or the Basic Menu. Access all instrument configuration options from alarm settings to pass code access option to menus.
