MGS-408 Gas Detection Controller

MGS-408 Gas Detection Controller
Centralized Controller for Refrigerant Safety Compliance
  • Centralized power and alarming for up to 8 gas sensors
  • Provides a single system with an easy means of achieving compliance with refrigeration safety standards
    such as EN 378 and ASHRAE 15
  • Displays real-time status / gas measurement for connected gas detectors
  • Modbus RTU interface, analog output and BMS / BAS connectivity
  • 3 Relays and integrated horn / strobe (optional external beacon available)
  • Retains alarm & status history of connected gas detectors on SD card

 

 Description
Bacharach's MGS-408 Gas Detection Controller centralizes the status of up to 8 gas detection channels in a single 
location. The digital display provides a real-time view of the gas concentration and status at each gas detection
point. It also allows for the controller to be configured in minutes vie the intuitive menu system. A bank of LEDs
corresponds to each connected gas detector; showing power, alarm status and fault indicators.
The MGS-408 can provide power for up to 8 gas detectors, which can be daisy-chained along with Modbus 
communication to each gas detector; simplifying and reducing the cost of installation. Integration is possible with
Bacharach's MGS-400 series, MGS-250 and MGS-550 Gas Detector platforms; allowing for a flexible gas detection
system design which can utilize the benefits of multiple gas detector types as required in different locations 
(machinery rooms, cold storage rooms, walk-in freezers and food preparation areas).
Combining the MGS-408 with Bacharach's range of gas detectors provides a single system with an easy means of 
achieving compliance with refrigeration safety standards such as EN 378 and ASHRAE 15.
