Notes: 

– HVCLD-NOX: Heated vacuum CLD, measures NO, NO2 and NOx using a switched arrangement. 

– HVCLD-DNOX: Heated dual detector CLD for continuous measurement of NO, NO2 and NOx. 

– HVCLD-DNOX (NH3): Heated dual detector CLD for continuous measurement of NH3. 

– Blank Panel is provided with free issued S4i software to act as remote display and to automate coarse and fine calibration. Display: Removable wireless tablet with on-board logging facility. 

– Pump control module can be used for automatic remote control of pumps as part of system.
