PROLONG INDUSTRIAL SCIENTIFIC BZ1 RUN TIME WITH EXTERNAL POWER

Prolong Industrial Scientific BZ1 Run Time with External Power

Why use an External Power Supply?

In September of 2016, Industrial Scientific released the Radius® BZ1 Area Monitor with LENS™ Wireless. Since then customers have found the instrument extremely easy to use and configure into a wireless network. Although a non-pumped Radius BZ1 configured with LEL, CO, H2S, and O2 sensors are capable of running for seven days, an increased battery runtime is always beneficial for around-the-clock projects and turnaround work.

To extend the battery runtime of the Radius BZ1, Industrial Scientific has released the Intrinsically Safe Extended Run Time Power Supply. The power supply is UL/CSA certified for use in Class I, Division 2 locations and can extend run time indefinitely. It joins the Extended Run Time Power Supply, which is certified for use only in safe zones, as the second supplemental power supply for Radius BZ1 Area Monitors.
 

See below for runtime estimates for the Radius BZ1 with and without supplemental power supplies.

The Extended Run Time Power Supply and Intrinsically Safe Extended Run Time Power Supply have been designed for use in different scenarios. Refer to the graphic below for each instruments appropriate use.

To clarify, the Intrinsically Safe Extended Run Time Power Supply can be in a Class I, Div 2, or Zone 2 location. It includes a blue cable that can extend into a Class I, Div 1, or Zone 0 location where it connects to the Radius BZ1 Area Monitor. A yellow cable is plugged† into an intrinsically safe receptacle in a Class I, Div 2, or Zone 2 location.

The Extended Run Time Power Supply is suitable for customers who do not have an intrinsically safe power receptacle. It should be plugged into a standard outlet and placed in a safe zone. The blue intrinsically safe cable can then extend to the Radius BZ1 Area Monitor in a Class I, Div 1, or Zone 0 location.
