Part Number: 67-7010-xx (xx denotes resolution and range variant)


World’s safest PID technology is now even safer! FALCO has been specifically engineered to work within condensing atmospheres and extreme weather.

List of Benefits

  • The only VOC detector designed specifically for extreme weather
  • Cutting-edge sensor performance minimizes drift and downtime
  • Typhoon Technology stops condensation forming within the PID
  • Multi-coloured status display seen from 20m in sunlight
  • Fitted with long-life lamp for 2 years’ continuous use
  • Eliminates false readings found with other PID’s
  • Pumped or diffused models
  • Pumped unit ideal for difficult to access locations; Diffused model reduces servicing costs
  • Four detection ranges available
  • Selectable response factor for varying VOC selection
  • Ex d approved

FALCO is the latest generation of fixed photoionisation detectors (PIDs) from ION Science that continuously detect a wide range of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s). Unique to FALCO is its revolutionary Typhoon Technology safeguarding the sensor from condensing moisture for added reliability in severe weather conditions. In addition, FALCO incorporates patented Fence Electrode Technology, which negates the effects of airborne humidity. FALCO gives you cutting-edge performance; reliability, accuracy and results you can trust, saving you both time and cost to your business. FALCO has an externally located Intrinsically Safe sensor for quick and easy servicing without the need for a hot work permit. Duel certification allows FALCO to be serviced in a hazardous environment without having to remove power.` Simple to operate, FALCO has an intuitive user interface. It has five magnetic switches with LED confirmation, a high contrast OLED screen and graphical interface ensuring installation and servicing are both quick and easy. RS485 (Modbus), 4-20mA and Relay outputs are standard for all models. The Relay outputs are configurable for either high and low alarms, fault conditions or test cycle synchronisation. FALCO offers the ultimate in flexibility and can be purchased as one of four detection ranges in either a pumped or diffused variant. With a diffused model, servicing costs are kept to a minimum with no pump to maintain.
