The PID sensor is the ideal choice for detecting low concentrations of volatile organic compounds. A PID (photoionization detector) is used to measure hazardous substance groups or can even be adjusted to measure individual substances.


VOCs detection in the ppm range

  • The PID (photoionization detector) completes the DrägerSensor family by measuring volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the ppm range. Therefore, it is a useful addition to workplace monitoring with multi-gas detectors in certain applications.

Many different applications

  • PID sensor technology is very versatile and can be used, for example, for clearance measurements during shutdowns in the chemical and petrochemical industries, monitoring operations in shafts and enclosed spaces, detecting leaks and many other applications.

Robust design (in combination with Dräger X-am® 7000)

  • The Dräger X-am 7000 is equipped with water-repellent membranes to protect the integrated Smart PID sensor during industrial use. The sensor also has very short response times and gives a rapid warning.

Adjustment and response factors

  • The PID sensor is quickly and simply adjusted using isobutene. Isobutene is a harmless gas that is available in practical, disposable, test gas bottles. Sensitivity to the monitored substance can then be individually set using response factors. This means that it can be calibrated on location at any time.

Our own design

  • The DrägerSensors have been developed and optimized by Dräger for specific applications. This allows them to be fully utilized in combination with our full line of in-house developed Dräger gas detectors.
