Pointwatch Eclipse® (PIRECL) IR Gas Detector
The PointWatch Eclipse® Model PIRECL IR Hydrocarbon Gas Detector is our most rugged stainless steel, point infrared gas detector. It is approved to be factory calibrated to detect methane, propane, ethylene, and butane. The Eclipse goes above gas detection to life-safety control. Thanks to its onboard relays and tri-colored LED indicator, the Eclipse has earned ANSI/ISA approval (ANSI/ISA-12.13.01: 2000) to annunciate and initiate life-safety executive control functions.

The PointWatch Eclipse® Model PIRECL is a diffusion-based, infrared combustible gas detector that provides continuous, fixed monitoring of flammable hydrocarbon gases from 0 to 100% Lower Flammable Limit (LFL).

Standard device outputs include an electrically isolated 4-20 mA signal with HART communication protocol, and RS-485 serial communication.

Serial communication protocols supported include MODBUS and ASCII.

An optional relay output board with two programmable alarm relay outputs and one fault relay output is available.

Ideally suited for protection of challenging on/offshore oil and gas facilities and other downstream hydrocarbon applications, the PointWatch Eclipse is globally certified for use in Class I, Divisions 1 and 2, and Zones 1 and 2 hazardous areas.

In addition, the stainless steel construction, sapphire optics, and modular design all combine to deliver industrial grade hardness along with easy installation and the lowest cost of ownership available.

 The PointWatch Eclipse is capable of detecting hundreds of flammable hydrocarbon gases and vapors.

 The Eclipse is performance certified to methane, propane, ethylene, and butane, and is shipped from the factory set and calibrated to one of these gases.

 Numerous additional operating parameters are programmable via digital communication or the optional hand-held communicator.
