A unique feature of the C16 gas detector is its ability to measure a variety of different gases by simply inserting the appropriate sensor for that gas. That makes this gas detector capable of measuring over 30 different gases or vapors, reducing the need to purchase individual detectors for each type of gas. The gas sensors for the detector can be changed quickly and easily, and there is no need for calibration when a gas sensor is change is made.
Gas sensors used in the C16 portable gas detector are ATI’s newest miniaturized smart sensor modules. Each sensor module is actually a sensor, amplifier, and memory module in one compact package. Because of this design, sensor modules can be calibrated independently and simply plugged into any detector for immediate use. When installed in a gas detector, calibration data is loaded into the microprocessor so that no adjustments are needed. The result is that a gas detector can, for example, go from phosgene measurement to ammonia measurement in less than one minute.
The C16 PortaSens II is equipped with an RS-232 output which allows stored data to be downloaded to a PC through an interface cable that is supplied with the unit. A software package is included with the unit to facilitate data transfer.
