20 October 2008

RAE Systems has introduced MeshGuard a rugged single- sensor, battery-powered toxic gas detector integrated with a wireless mesh radio modem for detecting hazardous levels of hydrogen sulphide (H2S) or carbon monoxide (CO). The monitoring units are designed to operate in the full temperature range of -40° to 122° F or -40° to +50° C.

Self-healing and automatic configuration of the network for the best wireless route results in ease of deployment and operation, while ensuring that critical data is delivered to the FMC 2000.

The MeshGuard monitors are intrinsically safe for use in hazardous atmospheres and weatherproof to an IP-65 rating. Each unit can operate up to six months without calibration or battery replacement. The radio range for the units is 300m (1000ft) line of sight, with each unit providing radio relay capability.

The FMC 2000 Controller can manage 24 sensor input channels and provides four programmable single-pole/double-throw (SPDT) relays. The controller includes a backlit display, 14 hours of battery backup and audible and visual alarms all in a stainless-steel package. The controller uses a standard SD-memory card to store alarm and program information.
