PurgEye 1500 Site Weld Purge Monitor

May 20, 2021
Huntingdon Fusion Techniques' welding monitor is an on-site monitor that has been specifically designed for extreme conditions.

The PurgEye 1500 Site is an on-site monitor that has been specifically designed for extreme conditions—protecting the quality of the weld. By using the PurgEye Site, welders can ensure non-oxidized, zero-color welds are achieved regardless of conditions.


The monitor has a fast, long-life sensor and features a PurgeNet Smart Cable, allowing the monitor to connect to a variety of accessories. One of the accessories, an automatic welding machine interface, allows controls to be based on the oxygen level to prevent welding if that level is too high. Other accessories include a traffic light visual indication system and a temperature gauge.


With the housing case open, the PurgEye Site is IP65 rated and IP68 rated with the lid closed. It measures oxygen from 1,000 ppm down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm) with readings in parts per million (ppm) or percentage, depending on the user's preference.


The small case can be carried anywhere and the monitor can be used either with its internal battery—which lasts up to 10 hours—or connected to mains electricity from 90 to 250V AC. The OLED display allows the data to be easily read and is mainly symbol-based, rather than text. The display does not need a backlight and can be viewed from greater angles than LED screens.
