Electrochemical Oxygen Analyzer - EC900
The electrochemical oxygen analyzers of series 900 are designed to measure most accurately oxygen levels in gases. The EC900 is used worldwide in industrial and laboratory applications.
Various versions of the EC900 allow measurings in trace, ultra trace or percent ranges.
The EC 900 is one of the worldwide most sucessfully used analyzers for residual oxygen measurings.
Among others these oxygen analyzers are used for quality assurance by well-know gas manufacturers.
These measuring devices work with a fuel cell which continuously measures the oxygen content in the sample gas.
Analyzers with a measuring range <1ppm …100% O2 are equipped with two measuring cells. The trace cell is controlled and protected via the percentage cell.
Features of the oxygen analyzer EC900
The oxygen analysers of series EC900 are available with two different sensors. These sensors switch to each other in order to increase measuring time and their lifetime.
- T90 : 30 sec
- Response time O2
in inert gas: 20.9% <20ppm O2 within 3 min
- Sensor lifetime:
3 to 6 years, depending on version and application up to 10 years
(Data for EC903)
The EC900 is available with three various casing types. All casings can be upgraded on demand. Additional plugs, mounting brackets, handles or jack rings can be mounted.
- Panel mounted or bench-top casing
- NEMA 4X/IP66 waterproof and weatherproof casing EC920
- 19″ rack mount casing EC930
Depending on the required measuring range, various sensors can be used. Four configurations are available for this, starting with measurements of oxygen in percent ranges, measurements of residual oxygen up to ultra trace analysis.
- Percent measurement – EC 900
Measurement range: 0.3% …100%
- Trace measurement – EC901
Measurement range: 0.1ppm …1%
- Ultratrace Measurement-EC902
Measurement range: 0.01ppm … 100 ppm
- RACE – EC903
Measurement range: 0.1ppm …100%
The EC903 RACE is by far the most popular and most widely used oxygen analyzer in the world. For most applications this analyser can display the total oxygen value and is most unaffected against a premature failure of the sensors. In atmospheres with hydrogen insensitive sensors can be used.
The electrochemical analyzers can be equipped with accessories and numerous configurations. The result is an oxygen analyzer precisely tailored to customer’s applications.
