Signal Group introduces portable gas analyser with FID

The device incorporates the company's core technologies in flame ionisation detection (FID) for the measurement of volatile organic compounds (VOCs)

Signal Group has announced the launch of Solar Xplore, a portable gas analyser. The device incorporates the company's core technologies in flame ionisation detection (FID) for the measurement of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

“There are two unique features in the Solar Xplore that set it apart from any other analyser in the world,” said Signal’s Stephane Canadas. “Firstly, we have taken the detachable tablet interface from our S4 fixed analysers and built it into the new instrument. This will be an enormous benefit for stack testers that have to travel up ladders and across roofs, because using the tablet, they will be able to operate the analyser wirelessly from a convenient location up to 50 metres away.

“Secondly, the new analyser can be fitted with twin FIDs, which means that users will be able to monitor total VOCs, methane, and non-methane VOCs (NMVOCs) simultaneously.”

The product is also supplied with an ethernet connection and software to enable remote operation.

The device's features also include a datalogger and a lightweight but robust frame. The unit's chassis design allows the internal electronics to simply slide out on a rail and unfold for maintenance operations.
