History of Photoionization
 In

May 2011, Dr. Jack Driscoll of HNU and now with PID Analyzers received the Outstanding Achievement Award from NESACS for the development of the first handheld photoionization detector  The Model 102+ represents the fifth generation of that device

Photoionization Process
Where:  R= a molecule with an IP <10.5 for the 10.6 or 11.9 for the 11.7 lamp  h = a photon with an energy >= IP of the molecule  R+ is the ion formed by the process that is collected in the ion chamberconcentration is proportional to the current produced

R + h = R+ + e

What is unique with the 102+
Analog output- not available with other PID’s  5 amplifiers in each head  Snap on heads with additional sensors  Best 11.7 eV lamps  Bluetooth wireless included  Low cost ppb option  ppm and ppb in same instrument  Wide ppb range- 1-60,000 ppb

Snap on Heads

 

Interchange PID lamp heads (9.5, 10.6, 11.7 eV) without the need for recalibration Library for 9.5, 10.6, 11.7 >300 response factors The best option is to have a 10.6 eV lamp with an 11.7 head to use when looking for chlorinated HC

11.7 Lamps
Customer comment ” the 11.7 lamp that I got from your competitor lasted just 5 days”  We have been making 11.7 eV lamps since 1979 and they are still better than any others out there

 Our

11.7 lamps will last for 600-700 hours of operation

102+
 In

the 102+ amp board, there are 5 amplifiers:
– PID- high input impedence- namps – CG, TCD, IR- Wheatstone bridgemeasure diff. in resistance for CG, TCD or IR for HC, CO2 or N2O – EC1- Biased or Unbiased – EC2- O2 or Unbiased – EC3- Biased or Unbiased

Snap-On Modules
It is possible to have multiple heads for the 102+ or other models  CG, TCD & IR use the same circuit but are setup differently (current)-can have separate heads for each  Unbiased EC sensors can be interchanged by customer, recalibrated then run  Readout unit will recognize type of PID or type of WB/sensor
