The Dräger X-zone 5500 transforms the Dräger personal gas detection instruments X-am 5000, 5100 and 5600 into innovative area monitoring devices for a wide range of applications. A patented combination for increased safety – in addition to the personal air monitors carried on the body, these area monitors are positioned where gas hazards are expected.
Even from a distance, the illuminated green LED ring indicates that the air is free of toxic and combustible gases. Upon detection of gas hazards, the LED color changes from green to red, thus providing a clear visual warning that gas is present. Additionally, a loud and highly audible evacuation alarm is emitted. The Dräger X-zone 5500 gas entry location permits gas to diffuse into the Dräger X-am 5000, 5100 or 5600 from all sides.
Up to 25 Dräger X-zone 5500 can be automatically interconnected to form a wireless fenceline. The interconnection of the area monitoring devices allows for rapid establishment of safety networks for larger areas.
A Dräger X-zone 5500 detecting a gas alarm transmits the alarm signal to all interconnected units. A red flashing master alarm in the unit detecting the gas contrasts with red/green flashing alarms of the connected units. This provides simple recognition of alarm status and the actual location of the hazard.
With the corresponding configuration, the maximum gas concentration in the monitored area is shown on the display. Combined with the display of the X-zone ID a clear containment of the hazard area is possible.
The 24 Ah battery of the Dräger X-zone 5500 provides up to 120 hours of continuous operation – up to a complete working week.
- 360°-gas entry
- Approval for Ex-Zone 0 (with Switch On or Switch Off for Ex-Zone 1)
- daily function test and calibration not required after single on-site testing
- individually configurable with the Dräger CC-Vision PC software (e.g. alarm frequency)
- inductive charging station: easy and convenient non-contact charging
- Integration in a control room system
- Connection to external displays, such as the Visualisation Panel X-zone 5500
Time, place and gas concentration are the most important data in the event of a gas leak. In an emergency, every second counts. Consequently, we have developed a more efficient and significantly safer method of area monitoring compared to conventional solutions: the Dräger X-zone 5500 together with X-zone Com. With these you can receive and view the measured data and alarms outside of the danger zone.
