Model FP-700 Combustible Gas Sensor

Model FP-700 is a portable, non-intrusive “Smart” sensor designed to detect and monitor combustible gases in air over the range of 0-100% LEL using catalytic bead sensor technology. The plug-in, field replaceable detector is poison-resistant and features over-sized gold-plated connections to prevent corrosion. The FP-700’s rugged framework includes an electropolished 316 stainless steel housing with fully encapsulated electronics and dual layer surge protection. This design prevents sensor failure due to water ingress, corrosion, vibration, and transient spikes.
