MSA says its new GasGard 100 Control System, which can be used in applications such as natural gas vehicle maintenance facilities, is now available with a display.
According to the company, the system has a 10.4′ TFT SVGA LED Panel PC touch-screen display and an LED indicator on the front panel for power on/off, storage access, and LAN active status.
MSA says its Gasgard 100 Control System provides fully integrated measurement, display and recording platforms that, when equipped with the company's line of transmitters and sensors, forms a complete gas detection solution.
The flexible, modular architecture of the GasGard 100 Control System's main module can manage anywhere from one to six I/O modules on the backplane. Up to six GasGard Controllers can be networked together to create a complete system. With this capability, each GasGard 100 Controller can serve as a measurement node, monitoring a subgroup of sensors, where all communicate back to a Master GasGard Controller. MSA says this can minimize the length of wire and conduit typically necessary for adequately monitoring a facility.
The company adds that open Ethernet connectivity, with Web-based configuration and data monitoring functions, allows GasGard 100 Controllers to handle a wide range of monitoring and historical logging functions.
