1. XgardIQ Intelligent Gas Detector and Transmitter Minimise the time operators spend in hazardous areas.

2. When lives and property are at risk and you need gas detection equipment that is totally reliable, you need Crowcon. For over 45 years Crowcon has been developing and manufacturing high quality products with a reputation for reliability and technical innovation. Crowcon fixed-point detectors have been proven in many arduous environments, including oil and gas exploration and production, petrochemicals, water treatment, chemical plants and steel mills. XgardIQ provides fail-safe detection of a very wide range of gases and vapours. XgardIQ Intelligent Gas Detector and Transmitter Product Description XgardIQ is an intelligent and versatile gas detector and transmitter compatible with Crowcon’s full range of sensor technologies. XgardIQ is available fitted with a variety of flammable, toxic and oxygen gas sensors and provides a bright OLED display with clear and comprehensive status infor mation in a range of languages. Confidence with Positive Safety Bright LEDs indicate detector status at a glance; the unique Positive Safety LED confirms the detector is operating safely and alerts operators to any irregular events that may affect product integrity such as the ambient temperature exceeding sensor limits. When working safely, the blue LED remains on constantly. If any abnormal conditions are detected the LED will flash and a warning message will be displ ayed. Flexible signal outputs XgardIQ provides comprehensive and powerful output signal options; analogue 4-20mA signal with auto sink/source detection feature and RS-485 Modbus communications are provided as standard. Alarm and fault relays featuring heavy-duty changeover contacts, rated 230Vac 5A, are available at purchase or may be added at any time after installation. HART communications can be provided both over the analogue signal and via local I.S. terminals for diagnostics via any HART asset management system or hand-held device. Rugged and robust ATEX and IECEx certified for use in Zone 1 and Zone 2 hazardous areas, XgardIQ has been designed for long-life operation in extreme environments. Featuring a rugged 316 stainless steel construction and a wide operating temperature range from -40°C to +75°C, XgardIQ is suitable for the most demanding applications. Improved safety XgardIQ minimises the time personnel spend in potentially hazardous locations by using simple hot-swappable sensor modules. Sensors can be bump tested and calibrated in-situ or removed in seconds using one hand, and either replaced with a pre-calibrated sensor module or re-calibrated in a safe area before being re- fitted. All functions and adjustments can be made via the integral keypad without the need for special tools or hot-work permits.

3. XgardIQ Options • Pre-calibrated flammable, toxic or oxygen sensor module • Huge range of gas sensors. Transmitter with Sensor • Enables transmitter to be installed in advance of com - missioning • Supplied with a dummy sensor module for weather protection • Auto-configure function when the sensor module is plugged in. Transmitter Only • Enables diagnostics via asset management systems • Local I.S. HART terminal connection • Detectors can be installed on a HART addressable network. HART Communications • Simple plug-in module • Heavy-duty 230Vac, 5A contacts • Alarm 1, Alarm 2 and Fault relays • On-delay and off-delay timers • Can be retrofitted as needed. Relays XgardIQ is compatible with Crowcon’s full range of sensor technologies. The transmitter provides analogue 4-20mA and RS-485 Modbus signals as standard and HART communications is available as an option. A relay module may be fitted at the time of purchase, or retrofitted at any time. The 316 stainless steel enclosure has three cable entries suitable for either M20 or ½”NPT cable glands. If XgardIQ is to be installed months ahead of scheduled commissioning, it can be supplied without a sensor module to avoid the possibility of the sensor being poisoned or expiring whilst inactive. The transmitter is supplied with a dummy sensor module to maintain dust and water ingress protection and sensor modules c an be delivered and installed prior to commissioning.

4. Simple installation and maintenance Hot-swap sensor modules Auto-sense function Auto-configure function Smart Bump and Speedy Bump test Calibration due warning Sensor range selection Easy to use Positive Safety indicator OLED display Buttons Event log Minimising risk XgardIQ offers powerful features which minimise the time opera tors spend in hazardous areas performing routine maintenance. Status checking at a glance and from a distance. Bright, clear display indicates gas level even in dark locations. Functions performed via buttons, without the need for special magnets or tools. Clear history of detector use. Easily removed or replaced using one hand without requiring hot work permit or special tools. Automatically detects whether the control system is 4-20mA current sink or source, saving time and faults. Detects when sensor module is plugged in and uploads the appropriate gas type, range, units and alarm levels. Sensor health and response verified quickly and easily following simple on-screen instructions. Detector automatically provides a reminder when next bump test is due. Automatically reminds the user when calibration is due to ensure sensors remain accurate at all times. Users can set the full-scale range of the sensor via the display menu according to site or specific location requirements. Accessories Pipe Mounting Kit Stainless steel U-bolts, nuts and washers to enable XgardIQ to be rigidly mounted to a 50mm (2”) pipe. Maximum pipe diameter: 60mm. Sun Shade Protects the detector from elevated temperatures due to direct sunlight. Collector Cone Clips to the sensor housing to aid detection of lighter-than-air gases such as hydrogen or methane. Calibration Cap Clips to the XgardIQ transmitter or remote sensor housing for application of calibration/bump test gas. Dummy Sensor Module Maintains IP rating of the XgardIQ transmitter when no sensor module is installed. Flow Adaptor For gas sampling applications. Splash Guard For outdoor installations and sensor protection from water sprays. Includes pipe spigot for application of bump test gas.
