Description

G460 1-6 Gas PID Multi-Gas Detector

GfG’s new intrinsically safe G460 is a rugged, compact instrument for simultaneous detection of up to 6 gases. Installed sensor options include infrared (NDIR) for CO2 and PID for VOC measurements. A full 3-year warranty is provided on most commonly used sensors and 5 years on the oxygen sensor, which reduces the cost of ownership over the lifetime of the instrument. The G460 offers completely automatic calibration, one-button operation, top mounted display and interchangeable battery packs for up to 24 hours of continuous operation. The rechargeable NiMH battery pack can even be equipped with optional “flash light” LEDs.

The large, high-resolution top display can be flipped 180° by pressing two buttons. Its watertight design incorporates an impact proof, rubberized housing to meet the toughest requirements.

The datalogger records over 1800 gas concentrations and alarms. The data can be downloaded to a PC for viewing, storage and evaluation.

A detachable, self-powered pump is available for sampling confined spaces prior to entry. It allows operation of the instrument in diffusion or sample-draw mode.

GfG Instrumentation develops and manufactures a full line of portable gas detectors, fixed systems and respiratory airline monitors to provide protection from combustible gases and vapors, oxygen hazards and toxic gases.

Product FAQs

I have an Optima-7 and suddenly the H2S readings are bad or very high. Do I need to replace the sensor?

Not necessarily. When the H2S sensor is exposed to high levels of H2S gas, it is recommended to run the instrument with the gas pump on with ambient air for the same amount of time the sensor was exposed to the high level of H2S. This allows for purging of the instrument before turning the instrument off. Be aware though that continued exposure to levels over 5000ppm H2S will damage the sensor.

Is it safe to expose the H2S sensor in an Optima-7 to H2S gas concentrations just below 5000ppm?

Exposure to H2S levels from 2000-5000ppm with moisture will degrade the sensor more quickly. Using filters inline reduces the moisture content of the gas stream entering the instrument.

A gas reading is much lower than expected. Is the sensor bad?

A common cause for lower than expected gas readings is leakage in the instrument. Perform a leak test by connecting the Condensate Separator Tube to the Pressure Connection 1 Port with tubing.

Perform a leak test as described in the User Manual Optima 7 Biogas. If the leak test fails, check for defective or missing o-rings in the Condensate Separator Tube.

If the user uses the Sampling Probe with sampling lines to take gas readings, place a clean Leak Proof Test Cap on the end of the probe spike. Attach the other end of the sampling line onto the Condensate Separator Tube. Perform the leak test. If the leak test fails, check for defective or missing o-rings in the Condensate Separator Tube and for cracks in the sampling line.

The Optima 7 is not displaying a temperature reading after inserting the thermocouple into the instrument.

Look closely at the prongs of the thermocouple. The prongs might be dirty. Use a sponge soaked in a 1:3 vinegar/water solution and gently wipe the prongs. Wipe dry with a lint-free cloth or allow to air-dry.

The Optima 7 will not power down after pressing the OFF key. How do I turn off the instrument?

Simultaneously, press the ESC key and the power button then release both keys. You will have to update the Date and Time setting in your instrument afterwards.
