Draeger Polytron ® 8310

Quick, reliable and cost-effective detection of combustible gases and vapours in the ambient air: The Dräger Polytron ® 8310, which contains a durable, poison-resistant IR sensor, can also be integrated into your digital fieldbus system, thus providing additional diagnostic functions.

Simple instrument management thanks to digital communication

With its HART® ability, the Dräger Polytron 8310 allows remote access using the Dräger PolySoft 8000 software for the quick and convenient evaluation of the instrument status. Integration in existing management systems (e.g. PactWare) is also possible using DTM. In addition, fieldbus systems such as Foundation Fieldbus or Profibus are supported by corresponding interfaces.


Proven – and still getting better: Dräger measurement technology

Dräger has been developing and manufacturing sensors and gas detectors for industrial use for more than 40 years. And with each new instrument generation, we drive our measurement technology a bit further. With the Polytron 8310, you will definitely benefit from this experience and power of innovation. For the more sophisticated DrägerSensor IR is also traditionally manufactured by Dräger.


Optional: Two mounting sets for easy flange-mounting

The housing has four mounting holes. Two different mounting sets are available for installing the Polytron 8310: a duct-mount and a pipe-mount set. This means that the transmitter can be easily installed anywhere – e.g., on a smooth wall, a pipe or an exhaust duct.


Further advantages


  • Easy and cost-effective: one-man calibration
  • Aluminium or 316 L stainless steel housing for the most extreme industrial conditions
  • Extremely user-friendly software thanks to a minimum number of menu items
  • Backlit display: easy to read, even in the dark and without a flash light
  • Traffic light status indicator (green = no danger, yellow = error, flashing red = gas alarm)
  • Matrix display allows the flexible setting of measuring ranges and units



Poison-resistant and fail-safe

The DrägerSensor IR offers several benefits: technological advantages such as poison resistance and a long service life. Another asset is the significantly reduced maintenance expenditure, as compared to pellistors. The DrägerSensor IR offers a high reliability and outstanding performance features, e.g. in terms of response times and long-term stability.


Optional: Three relays for controlling external equipment

On request, the Dräger Polytron 8310 can be equipped with three integrated relays. This enables you to use it as an independent gas detection system with two arbitrarily adjustable concentration alarms and one fault alarm. Audio alarms, signal lights, or similar devices can, thus, be controlled locally – without an additional cable between the transmitter and a central controller. The sensor signal can be evaluated using the 4 to 20 mA signal.


Quick and easy wiring

The electronics and the bezel form a single unit. Simply pull them out of the housing. Then insert the three-wire cable into the terminals. Finally, plug the terminal block into the PCB.
