KwikSense PID VOC Detector (Volatile Organic Compounds)

The KwikSense PID VOC detector, ATEX certified, is dedicated to the volatile organic compounds detection. It is an ATEX transmitter with linear 4-20 mA output, alarm relay, and a digital display that can be connected to a control system (safety PLC, gas detection system) or used as a stand-alone control point.

  • VOC detectors with PID technology (10.6 eV photo-ionization lamp) for the detection of volatile organic compounds
  • Digital display and three-colored LEDs to indicate the status of the detector 
  • Rugged, explosion-proof housing with cast aluminium alloy
  • 4-20 mA, MODBUS, and 1 or 3 relay outputs depending on the model
  • Numerous compatible accessories: calibration cap, gas manifold, climate protection, duct mounting kit
Additional information

Volatile organic compounds (VOC) gather a multitude of substances that are characterized by their high volatility. Their effects on health are very variable depending on the nature of the pollutant. They range from a certain olfactory discomfort to mutagenic and carcinogenic effects (including benzene), various irritations also, and a reduction in respiratory capacity.

The KwikSense PID is a photo-ionization VOC detector that uses a 10.6 eV PID lamp in diffusion mode with fewer contamination and maintenance problems than pump-based systems. It has a robust and compact design to withstand harsh environments, is ATEX certified, and can be used in most industrial applications.

It is available in 2 models depending on the needs and applications: KwikSense PID with display, 4-20 mA and MODBUS outputs, three alarm relays, and optional HART protocol and SIL2 certification. The KwikSense Lite PID "economical" version with display, 4-20 mA output, and one single alarm relay.

The COV detector KwikSense PID's two interface buttons are operated non-intrusively by a simple magnet allowing complete configuration and calibration of the transmitter without opening the unit's housing. It can be used as a stand-alone detector or connected to a gas detection controller or a safety PLC.
