MVR-300 VRF Refrigerant Gas Detector

MVR-300 VRF Refrigerant Gas Detector

Refrigerant Detector for VRF Systems in Occupied Spaces
  • Fits in standard 3-gang electrical boxes for easy installation
  • Low profile / flush mount for aesthetically non-intrusive appearance
  • Two relays and Modbus Communications for notifying building management & initiate counter measures
  • Alarm options (LED, buzzer, two levels, configurable delay and fail-safe) to alert occupants and remotely
    inform building management
    of alarm location for rapid response as required
  • Refrigerant specific sensors for enhanced safety
  • Self diagnostics and simple field calibration for easy maintenance
  • Unique plug-in field replaceable pre-calibrated sensor for low cost of ownership


The MVR-300™ VRF Refrigerant Gas Detector is specifically designed to provide continuous monitoring for 
refrigerants associated with high-efficiency, high volume refrigerant cooling and heating systems, such as VRF /
VRV (Variable Refrigerant Flow/Variable Refrigerant Volume) systems. Typical applications include hotels,
dormitories, hospitals, office buildings, and apartment buildings.
The MVR-300™ audible and visual alarms alert occupants and simultaneously communicate to Building 
Management Systems/Building Automation Systems (BMS/BAS). Two on-board relays can be used to close valves,
activate alarm devices and exhaust fans or initiate emergency calls to rescue teams.
The on-board Modbus RTU interface provides real-time information about concentrations, status and settings. It 
also enables custom configuration of the MVR-300™ to any application specific requirements using multiple
Modbus registers.
The MVR-300™ is designed for easy installation and simple maintenance.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Large refrigerant leaks into occupied spaces can reach concentrations that pose a suffocation 
risk to the occupants. The MVR-300™ is not designed to be used as the sole safety device for this risk. Safety of
the occupants also must take a system designed approach that includes things such as ventilation, detection, early
warning, mitigation and design redundancy.
