FALCO Fixed VOC Detector

Offering the ultimate in safety, FALCO overcomes false readings found with other PIDs. Its multicolored LED status display can be seen from a distance of twenty meters in direct sunlight, ensuring you are clearly alerted to hazards present. FALCO has an externally located Intrinsically Safe sensor for quick and easy servicing without the need for a hot work permit. Dual certification allows FALCo to be serviced in a hazardous environment without having to remove power.

Simple to operate, FALCO has an intuitive user interface. It has five magnetic switches with LED confirmation, a high contrast OLED screen and graphical interface, ensuring installation and servicing are both quick and easy. RS485 (Modbus) 4-20 mA and relay outputs are standard for all models. The relay outputs are configurable for either high or low alarms, fault conditions or test cycle synchronization.

\FALCO offers the ultimate in flexibility and can be purchased as one of four detection ranges in either a pumped or diffused variant. With a diffused model, servicing costs are kept to a minimum with no pump to maintain.
