Series 4 Pulsar
Pulsar nondispersive infrared (NDIR) analyzers offer superior performance in a wide variety of applications for the monitoring of all infrared absorbing gases.


Gas Filter Correlation (GFC) is the best type of nondispersive infrared (NDIR) for combustion analysis. Instead of a dual beam sample cell and a separate reference cell, this method uses only a single cell for both sample and reference. This method reduces problems with cell contamination causing a difference in readings. Also, we fill the filter wheel with our own proprietary gas mixtures to eliminate interference from other gases (e.g., H2O or CO2) when measuring. For example, ppm level CO is easily measurable in the presence of percent levels of these other gases.

Up to 5 gases can be measured using a single Analyzer. We offer various configurations and options to suit many applications, including internal gas switching for automatic calibration, any combination of separate or combined sample inlets for all of the measurement channels, sample pumps, etc.

Our unique design means that we can cater to many combinations of gases. Gases such as CO, CO2, NO, SO2, CH4, HCl and O2 can be included in many combinations of ranges; for example, a 100ppm CO range can be used alongside 20% CO2, 1000ppm NO, 100ppm SO2, and 25% O2.

Pulsar-class monitors are Series-4 instruments and provide superior levels of linearity throughout the 10,000:1 range ratio.

  • SO2 (sulfur dioxide): 0.1, 1%

Pulsar options:

  • Front panel screen = Required for onboard logging capability; supplied with a 2GB USB memory stick, but can also be used with flash memory SD card.
  • Ambient pressure compensation
  • Calibration gas handling
  • Full gas handling
  • Individual sample inlets
  • Integrated sample pump
