Series 1300 Oxygen Deficiency Monitor

Series 1300 Oxygen Deficiency Monitor

The cornerstone feature of the Series 1300 Oxygen Deficiency Monitor is its extended life electrochemical sensor with optimized Enhanced Electrolyte System (EES). As a result of EES, Alpha Omega Instruments is able to offer an unparalleled four (4) year sensor warranty.  The standard measuring range of the monitor is 0-30% with a readout resolution to the nearest tenth of a percent. Alpha Omega Instruments’ exclusive Advanced Digital Interface (ADI) offers the capability to expand the Series 1300 with up to three oxygen sensors.  Adding oxygen sensors and/or optional horn and strobe alarms in the field takes just a few minutes.  For multi-point monitoring requirements, equipping the Series 1300 with three oxygen sensors reduces the per-point price to under $1,000.  The Series 1300 also features a powerful built-in data logger so time-stamped oxygen values can be captured and stored for subsequent use with a variety of spreadsheet programs.

Price Range: $1,490.00 – $1,890.00

Overview

Deploying a permanently mounted oxygen deficiency monitor in areas where inert gases are stored or piped is highly recommended. Like most things in life, not all oxygen deficiency monitors are the same. Alpha Omega Instruments Series 1300 Oxygen Deficiency Monitor has an array of features and safeguards that makes it today’s premier monitor.

The Series 1300 is a digitally-controlled instrument with a measuring range of 0-30%. Oxygen values are displayed to the nearest tenth of a percent on a high contrast front panel liquid crystal display (LCD).   The monitor is housed in a resilient polycarbonate, wall mountable general purpose enclosure. Standard input power to the Series 1300 is 90-264 VAC, 47-63 Hz. 18-36 VDC and 12 VDC powered systems are available.  Battery backup power is an option. The  eloquence of the Series 1300 is its simple operation, as well as its ease of expandability. Included are four individually adjustable Form C alarm relays, each rated at 10 amps (250 VAC). The Series 1300  can be programmed to provide a maximum of nine individual alarm events. Two scalable analog outputs (4-20 mADC and 0-20 mADC) are standard, as is RS-232 serial communications. Each Series 1300 includes an internally mounted audible alarm rated at 85 decibels (nominal) as well as visual alarm indicators. The Series 1300 can control up to a maximum of 8 remote optional horn and strobe alarms.

ENHANCED ELECTROLYTE SYSTEM (EES)

The Series 1300 can be equipped with a local oxygen sensor and/or up to two remote sensors. The sensors  featured in the Series 1300  are extended life electrochemical oxygen sensors designed with a proprietary Enhanced Electrolyte System (EESTM) that extends the life expectancy of the sensor to years instead of approximately 12 months typical of most “fuel cell type” sensors.  The oxygen sensors in the Series 1300 are designed with open diffusers eliminating the need to use sample pumps.  Alpha Omega Instruments backs each Series 1300 oxygen sensor with an unprecedented full four-year warranty. Users can expect sensor life well beyond 5 years, helping to ensure reliable and trouble free performance.

Room Oxygen Monitor

Room Oxygen Monitor For facilities such as laboratories, industrial plants, medical facilities, food processing plants, et al. that have closed or restricted areas containing stored or piped inert gases such as nitrogen, helium, argon, carbon dioxide, etc., deployment of a room oxygen monitor is an excellent way of helping to ensure that breathing air oxygen levels are properly maintained. Most room oxygen monitors are designed to provide 24/7 protection by alerting personnel of a change in oxygen levels. However, not all room oxygen monitors (often referred to as oxygen deficiency monitors) are the same. There are appreciable differences between models of automobiles, laptop computers, and yes, room oxygen monitors.  The focal point of Alpha Omega Instruments’ room oxygen monitors is their long-life electrochemical sensors with EEStm(enhanced electrolyte system). EES helps to ensure that the useful life of the sensor is in years not months like most "fuel cell" type oxygen sensors. Backing the Company’s claim of sensor longevity is Alpha Omega Instruments unprecedented extended sensor warranty.  Many room oxygen monitors use sensors that need to be replaced every 12 months or so (planned obsolescence). But that's only half of the problem.  It is quite common for room oxygen monitors with fuel cell [...]

The Importance of Oxygen Deficiency Monitors in the Work-Place

The Importance of Oxygen Deficiency Monitors in the Work-Place If someone were to ask you what the major cause of gas related injuries in the work-place is, would your answer be carbon monoxide poisoning? What about exposure to ammonia, hydrogen chloride, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, or chlorine? Even though injuries are reported as a result of over exposure to these gases, oxygen deficiency continues to pose the largest overall health risk. Often referred to as the “silent killer”, oxygen depleted breathing air is the cause of numerous injuries and/or deaths on an annual basis. Breathing air oxygen can be depleted as a result of leakage of stored or piped inert gases such as nitrogen, helium, argon, carbon dioxide, sulfur hexafluoride, etc. These gases, as well as others, are often used in laboratories, fertility clinics, heat treating facilities, cryotherapy installations, shipyards, various manufacturing processes, MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) installations, research facilities, dry ice manufacturing facilities, and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) installations to mention a few. According to a recent paper released by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) “oxygen can even be consumed by rusting metal, stored ripening fruits, drying paint, combustion, or bacterial activities.” so it’s not just leakage [...]

Oxygen Sensor Types

Oxygen Sensor Types Today’s oxygen analyzers use one of a several types of oxygen sensors.  As industrial process applications call for improved measurement accuracy and repeatability, users are also demanding analyzers that require a minimum of maintenance and calibration.  To this end, users of oxygen analyzers are encouraged to evaluate the merits of a particular oxygen sensor type in context to the application for which it is intended. There is no one universal oxygen sensor type. The synoptic review of the various gas phase oxygen sensors provided below should be used in conjunction with information gathered from manufacturers of oxygen analyzers. This combination will help to ensure the selection of the right sensor type for the application under consideration. Ambient Temperature Electrochemical Oxygen Senors Paramagnetic Oxygen Sensors Polarographic Oxygen Sensors Zirconium Oxide Oxygen Sensors Ambient Temperature Electrochemical Oxygen Sensors The ambient temperature electrochemical sensor, often referred to as a galvanic sensor, is typically a small, partially sealed, cylindrical device (1-1/4” diameter by 0.75” height) that contains two dissimilar electrodes immersed in an aqueous electrolyte, commonly potassium hydroxide. As oxygen molecules diffuse through a semi-permeable membrane installed on one side of the sensor, the oxygen molecules are reduced at the cathode to form a positively charge hydroxyl ion. [...]
