Product Overview

The Manning EC-F9-NH3 with SensorCheck™ features industry-leading performance gas detection technology and adds a built-in system to monitor and predict the sensor’s electrical viability.

Available with an optional LCD that allows real time display of gas concentration. The easy to read display allows for quick visual error events upon startup and troubleshooting and can be calibrated without a voltmeter.The EC-F9-NH3 with LCD is designed to work in the harshest environments including chemical washdown.

General Description

The Manning EC-F9-NH3 sensor consists of a pair of polarized electrodes isolated from the ambient air by a gas permeable membrane.As Ammonia diffuses into the sensor, a redox reaction occurs, generating a current linearly proportional to Ammonia gas concentration. Unlike many other Ammonia sensors, this gas diffusion detector exhibits excellent zero and calibration stability over long periods of time. EC cells often last 3-4 years in the refrigerated environments of food processing and storage warehouses. This sensor can provide direct input into PLC’s and computer control systems that accept a linear 4/20 mA signal either directly from the sensor or from any Manning multichannel stand alone alarm consoles with relay or analogue output.
