Model 221R

DESIGNED FOR SAFETY

The AMI MODEL 221R is the gold standard for oxygen deficiency & confined space oxygen monitoring. It is used by the thousands in US Government Laboratories, Space Agencies, Universities and a broad range of industries to ensure the safety of personnel. The MODEL 221R provides an incredibly accurate and stable reading over a wide temperature range (0-130°F) and is not affected by changes in barometric pressure. This analyzer is virtually maintenance-free with its unique oxygen sensor delivering a 10-year life expectancy.

Note that the MODEL 221R should not be used in areas where Flammable Gases may be present.

Features & Benefits

Oxygen Deficiency Monitor in Work Environment
MODEL 221R Oxygen Deficiency Monitor installed in area with several gas cylinders

Designed for OSHA Compliance

The MODEL 221R is optimized for safety. Our standard offering provides (3) OSHA-compliant preset alarm relay contacts and a single 95 decibel audible alarm. The “Caution” alarm is preset for 20.0% oxygen, Danger for 19.5% and the Enriched Oxygen alarm for 23.5%. Both the 19.5% Danger and 23.5% Enriched Oxygen condition trigger alarm relay contacts and the 95dB audible alarm to alert personnel of the potentially dangerous situation. This Analyzer is also NRTL-certified to be compliant with UL61010-1, covering safety requirements of equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use.

Zirconium Oxide Sensor

10-Year Zirconium Oxide Sensor Technology

AMI’s zirconium oxide sensors are virtually maintenance-free, extremely accurate and stable over a wide temperature range without suffering from changes in barometric pressure. This unique sensor is the perfect choice for reliably measuring percent levels of oxygen in confined spaces, tank storage area, or in the workspace, ensuring personal safety. AMI’s zirconium sensor in the MODEL 221R will last up to 10 years without ever needing replacement.

Optional Remote Probe

The MODEL 221R is available with an optional remote probe for continuous monitoring of locations separate from the control unit. This makes it an ideal solution for making sure difficult to access locations continue to have a safe oxygen level. The remote probe comes standard with a 12 ft (3.6m) cable, but they can be extended by the customer up to 300 ft (91.4m). The probe features the same long-life zirconium oxide sensor as the standard MODEL 221R.
