The Manning by Honeywell EC-FX ammonia gas detector offers tough sensors that will work in three harsh environments. The rugged, longer lasting ammonia sensor are ideal for commercial buildings and other industrial applications, with stability you can count and low cost, the EC-FX-NH3 is the new gold standard in ammonia detection.
- Quick reponse to ammonia concentrations in low parts per million (PPM)
- Rugged construction for long-term reliability
- ATMOSTM Technology for environmental flexibility
- Stainless Steel enclosure with LCD options
- New ammonia sensor with a proprietary electrolyte
- 3 year warranty
The Ammonia sensor/transmitter has been designed for use in industrial refrigeration applications.
The EC-FX-NH3 can provide a linear 4/20 mA or Modbus RS-485 signal input into PLC’s or SCADA systems and can also be used with Honeywell controllers to create a complete gas detection system that includes visual/audible notification and relay outputs to activate ventilation.

EC-FX is designed for operation in a wide range of environments and harsh conditions. However, it is important that exposure to high concentrations of solvent vapors is avoided, both during storage, fitting into instruments, and operation.
EC-FX is designed to be used in safety critical applications. To ensure that the sensor and/or instrument in which it is used, are operating properly, it is a requirement that the function of the device is confirmed by exposure to target gas (bump check). Failure to carry out such tests on a regular basis may jeopardize the safety of people and property.
