Open Path Eclipse (OPECL) IR Gas Detector
Det-Tronics offers a line-of-sight gas detector for measurement of hydrocarbon vapors in the lower explosive limit per distance (LFL-meter) detection range. Ideally suited for open path gas detection applications in oil, gas, and petrochemical facilities, the Open Path Eclipse provides a number of unique features and benefits.

The Open Path Eclipse Model OPECL is an open path infrared gas detection system that provides continuous monitoring of combustible hydrocarbon gas concentrations in the range of 0 to 5 LFL-meters, over a distance of 5 to 120 meters.

Standard system outputs include an electrically isolated/non-isolated 4-20 mA dc current output, with HART and RS-485 MODBUS communication.

 Alarm and fault relays are available as an option.

A fully addressable LON based model (with no analog or relay outputs) is available for use with Eagle Quantum Premier® systems.

The OPECL IR Gas Detector delivers superior open path combustible gas detection for protection of oil/gas and other industrial facilities.

The Open Path Eclipse system is especially useful for perimeter monitoring and applications where combustible gas/vapor leaks can happen over a widely dispersed area.

The Model OPECL system offers industry leading features including dual xenon flashlamps, stainless steel construction, ease of installation and alignment, field replaceable transmitter and receiver modules, and a standard 2 year warranty.

The system is optimized for low maintenance, no false alarms, and low cost.

The OPECL system utilizes onboard heaters in both modules to melt snow and ice, enabling unattended and uninterrupted operation in inclement weather.
