Signal launches heated VOC analyser11 October 2021

Signal Group (UK) has announced the launch of a new portable gas analyser, the Solar Xplore. One of the company’s core technologies is flame ionisation detection (FID) for the measurement of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and the new instrument is said to bring the advantages of fixed analysers to a portable device.

“There are two unique features in the Solar Xplore that set it apart from any other analyser in the world,” said Signal’s Stephane Canadas. “Firstly, we have taken the detachable tablet interface from our S4 fixed analysers and built it into the new instrument. This will be an enormous benefit for stack testers that have to travel up ladders and across roofs, because using the tablet, they will be able to operate the analyser wirelessly from a convenient location up to 50 metres away.

“Secondly, the new analyser can be fitted with twin FIDs, which means that users will be able to monitor total VOCs, methane, and non-methane VOCs (NMVOCs) simultaneously.”

The new Solar Xplore is also supplied with an ethernet connection and software to enable remote operation. This means that users will be able to manage the analyser and monitor the data from almost anywhere in the world.

New design features include an in-built datalogger. In addition, the chassis design allows the internal electronics to simply slide out on a rail and unfold for maintenance operations.
