New Stand Alone CO Monitor Now Available With Optional Remote Sensor Extension Cable
RKI is pleased to introduce the new EC-600 stand-alone carbon monoxide monitor. The EC-600 will continuously detect CO with a range of 0-150 ppm with 1 ppm increments. The EC-600 features highly visible 3-color alarms, audible alarms and digital display as CO levels increase above the 2 alarm points.
As a new addition to this release, these units are now available with remote extension cables of various lengths factory attached as one part number. Please see the new price list below for these updates.
The EC-600 replaces the model EC-500, which is no longer available. The EC-600 has all the same capabilities as the EC-500 as well as the following advancements:
- 3 power options (115 VAC, 24 VDC, or Alkaline batteries-AA)
- An audible alarm tone with a multicolored LED digital display
- Ready to operate with a simple wall mount bracket and 10 foot power cord in its AC version
- Larger display makes readings visible from farther away
Three color display: Green, yellow, and red to show various operation or alarm conditions
RKI Instruments is now shipping the new SDM-6000 calibration station for the GX-6000.
Here are some details (pricing will be on the website soon)
Stand Alone Station
RKI’s new SDM-6000 is a versatile maintenance tool that automates the service of a GX-6000 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 SD card or connection with a USB cable depending on the mode of operation.
SDM-6000 calibration stations are modular by design and can easily connect to each other without the need for any tubes or cables. Up to 10 calibration stations can also be connected to one PC for automated charging, calibration, bump testing and archiving of data. All data collected from the PC Controlled software can also be centralized in one network location accessible by anyone with the PC Controlled software with access to the network location.
The SDM-6000 can be used in PC Controller operation where it is controlled by the PC Controller Program or in Standalone Operation (not connected to a computer) where all control is done at the master SDM-6000 and all data is transferred to the PC Controller program via an SD memory card.
