International Gas Detectors has launched a new 2-wire addressable room status indicator to clearly show whether it is safe or not to enter an area protected by gas detectors.
After an area has been evacuated due to a hazard detection, IGD’s range of room status indicators provide a clear and unambiguous signal of when it is safe to return.
This device can give live readings of up to 8 detectors / devices in specified rooms, to provide accurate measurement of the background atmosphere for a specific hazardous target gas.
The system incorporates clear visual and audible alarms for any hazard to ensure safety.
A two-line colour change display indicates green when all is OK, and flashing red when in alarm mode. There is a customisable display, featuring a two line message. By default the green display will message OK TO ENTER and the flashing red display will message GAS ALARM. Should a fault occur, the display will change to yellow and display FAULT.
In addition, the unit has an 85dB sounder. Placed at eye level by a doorway the unit clearly indicates the room status.
IGD’s detector nodes interface with standard 4-20mA detectors and temperature, pressure and flow probes, with a 4-20mA output.
Relays and digital outputs are included allowing them to run additional illuminated signage, beacons, solenoids or door controls to further enhance site safety.
They can be fitted with slam switches or key switches, to create extra flexibility for process laboratory areas or similar applications.
IGD’s room status indicators provide an innovative solution to a number of common problems, clearly displaying local information and alarms in a simple yet powerful format.
