The Detcon Model X40 control solution from 3M Gas & Flame Detection is equipped with cutting-edge technologies and is fully field-programmable using a small handheld magnet.
The control system displays real time readings and field device status on a backlit LCD screen.
During normal operation the screen displays the alarm status and current reading (ie. channel number, gas type, and gas concentration) for up to eight field devices simultaneously.
The display is sequential and during normal operation it auto cycles through each of the active channel screens.
Enclosure options include NEMA 4X, NEMA 1 panel mount and NEMA 7.
Features and benefits:
The Model X40 Integrated Alarm and Control System is a low-power alarm and control system designed to monitor multiple gas detection sensors and /or a wide range of other field X40 functions as a Modbus™ Master and can be customised and expanded based on individual application needs using the stackable din-rail mounted I/O modules.
All I/O modules are individually addressable and operate on 11.5VDC-30VDC.
The Model X40 provides power for up to 32 field devices and can house up to 12 four-channel I/O modules. I/O modules available for use with the X40 include a four-channel 4mA-20mA input module (DA-4), a four-alarm relay output module (RL-4), a four-channel 4mA-20mA output module (AO-4), and a four-relay contact input module (DI-4).
Modules can be mounted within the main system enclosure or installed remotely to simplify field wiring.
