MSA's GasGard 100 Control System, a scalable, high performance data acquisition/data-logging platform, is now available with a 10.4” TFT SVGA LED panel PC with resistive touchscreen display providing intuitive and smart operator control. The user friendly design of the display makes it very reliable, and comes with a LED indicator on the front panel for power on/off, storage access and LAN active status. 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 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. This can minimize the length of wire and conduit typically necessary for adequately monitoring a facility. Its open Ethernet connectivity, with web-based configuration and data monitoring functions, allow GasGard 100 controllers to handle a wide range of monitoring and historical logging functions, according to the manufacturer.
