We developed FA-5000/5200 series as the gas analyzer used in a metal hardening process, MPA-5000 as the gas analyzer used in an iron manufacturing process and VA-5000WM series as the gas analyzer used for a measurement of combustion exhaust gas and gas in various process application. FA-5000/5200 series were designed as a panel mount case and can measure up to three gases at the same time, such as Carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide and Methane. Nondispersive infrared method is used as measurement principle. MPA-5000 was designed as a 19-inches panel mount case and can measure Oxygen gas. Magnetic force method is used as measurement principle. VA-5000WM series was designed as a wall mount case and can measure up to four gases at the same time, such as Carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide and Oxygen. Nondispersive infrared method, Chemiluminescence method and Oxygen analysis method (magnetic force method, zirconia method and electrode method (galvanic cell type)) are used as measurement principle. This article describes the specification and characteristic of these analyzers, measurement principle used in these analyzers and improvements from conventional model.
