Sensit HXG-2D Digital Gas Leak Detector
Recognized by The Building Performance Institute, Inc. (BPI) to meet or exceed industry standards
The lowest cost answer if you need to be BPI 1200 and/or RESNET compliant!
IDEAL FOR USE IN NY STATE (EMPOWER) PROGRAMS
The first affordable gas leak detector with TRUE digital display!
After you tell your customers/clients you have detected a gas leak with a TICK type leak detector, many may ask: "Well, how much of a leak?"
Now the HGX-2d allows you to be specific!
With the innovative ZTR-Zero Threshold Reset - you can look at the gas level above the level created by pipe dope or some soap solutions, to tell you the TRUE LEAK!
The SENSIT HXG-2d pinpoints leaks quickly with its true digital display and electronic tick control. Ideal for natural, butane and propane gas leaks. The SENSIT HXG-2d is safe, durable and reliable.
- Direct PPM readout
- Direct "LEL" percent readout
- Electronic tick rate control to pinpoint leaks
WORKING WITH PROPANE?
When an HXG-2D calibrated on Methane shows 10% LEL when sampling Propane gas you are actually measuring 6% LEL of Propane due to the differing energy content between Methane (CH4) and Propane (C3H8).
EG. When sampling Propane gas:
(LEL reading when Methane Calibrated) x 0.6 = LEL reading of Propane gas
The SENSIT HXG-2D Covers the requirement of ANSI/BPI-1200-S-2015 (BPI 1200) Standard

7.1.1 Combustible gas detector (CGD) CGD equipment used for testing shall:
184.108.40.206 Be classified to UL 913 Intrinsically Safe Apparatus and Associated Apparatus for Use in Class I, II, and III, Division 1, Hazardous (Classified) Locations or equivalent.
220.127.116.11 Have a variable tick rate or changing tone based on gas concentration levels. Note: The tick rate provides the indication of concentration but only accounts for relative concentration changes, not necessarily identifying hazardous concentration thresholds.
18.104.22.168 Be capable of providing a digital display of percentage of Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) and/or provide an alarm when detecting combustible gas concentrations exceeding 10% Lower Explosive Limit (LEL).
22.214.171.124 Be calibrated and/or operation checked in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations with available documentation traceable to the individual device.
126.96.36.199 Have the ability to zero ambient conditions.

Excerpt from Revisions to Chapter 8 Sections 806-808
806.1 Equipment needed Combustible gas detector
- Must be intrinsically safe. It is essential that the instrument being used to detect gas leaks will not cause a spark.
- Must have an adjustable tick rate. The tick rate provides the indication of concentration.
- Gas leak detectors are prone to false positive signals from humidity and it is essential to have the ability to zero ambient conditions to trace the location of a leak.
- Must provide an alarm when detecting the LEL exceeds 10%.
- Must be calibrated in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations, or at least annually, whichever is the greater frequency.
- Must be labeled with a calibration sticker, noting at a minimum the date of last calibration
