Hydrogen Gas Detector for AC and DC Applications

The HGD-2000 Hydrogen Gas Detector by Eagle Eye Power Solutions is now available for DC power sources in addition to AC power. The DC-powered HGD-2000 gas detectors are commonly found in telecoms, in addition to utilities and other battery charging and storing rooms.

The Eagle Eye HGD-2000 Hydrogen Gas Detector allows the user to monitor hydrogen gas buildup in storage rooms and facilities that house batteries – including forklifts, golf carts, backup power supplies, and battery charging stations. Lead-acid batteries on charge emit hydrogen gas after reaching the 80 percent recharge point. When mixed with enough air, hydrogen becomes a highly flammable gas that can ignite easily with just a spark, destroying equipment and harming personnel. The lower explosive level (LEL) for hydrogen is 4.1 percent by volume. The dangers of hydrogen gas explosion are eliminated by using the HGD-2000 hydrogen gas detector.

The HGD-2000 is easy to use and install for both AC & DC power sources. If the concentration of hydrogen gas in the air surrounding the sensor reaches 1 percent by volume, the yellow LED will light and the 1 percent internal relay will close. A four second delay prevents false activation. If the concentration reaches 2 percent, the red LED will flash, the internal 80 db warning alarm will sound, and the 2 percent internal relay will close. The HGD-2000 is a preventative tool for equipment and personnel protection where hydrogen gas buildup can occur.
