Whether it is emergency rescue, driving services or security at events, the Regional Association of the Red Cross of Lower Austria sets high standards – not only in the care of Austria’s citizens. It also ensures the safety of its own employees.

In the course of the new construction of the branch office, the vehicle hall of the ambulances will be equipped with a CO gas warning system. Accordingly, in case of an increased CO concentration in the hall, an alarm is triggered to warn the staff.

Products from MSR-Electronic protect life and CO gas warning system


When it comes to safety, the Red Cross banks on products from MSR-Electronic. Gas warning systems must be reliable at all times. When gas is present, in parking garages or vehicle halls, prompt help and reliable products are needed.

The sensors, controllers and warning devices from MSR-Electronic effectively protect people and systems in dangerous situations when combustible or toxic gases occur. With the help of modern communication technology, it is possible to react quickly.



The digital  exchange sensor from MSR-Electronic

For continous CO monitoring of the ambient air in the vehicle hall, the digital exchange sensor (type SC2) is used in the CO gas warning system.

  • If the average value of 30 ppm is reached, the ventilation system reacts immediately and provides fresh air.
  • When a carbon monoxide concentration of 60 ppm is reached, all warning devices in the hall switch to alarm in the form of light signals.
  • The acoustic warning means – the so-called warning horn – reacts additionally at an alarm threshold of 150 ppm.

Calibration can be carried out by simply exchanging the sensor head or by using the integrated, convenient calibration routine directly at the system.

The Digital-Gas-Controller DGC-06 is:

  • measuring device system
  • warning device system
  • controlling device system

It can be used for toxic, combustible gases and vapours as well as refrigerants. It is designed according to EN 50545 and can monitor and evaluate up to 128 gas sensors. Each sensor has 4 freely adjustable alarm thresholds.

Freely adjustable parameters and setpoints enable flexible use in gas measurement technology. Various interfaces and protocols are available for connection to a higher-level management system.




The project, which is currently in the final phase, is being supervised on site by our MSR-Austria branch.

Further information on MSR products can be found in the current online catalog or in the webshop.

MSR-Electronic is a manufacturer of fixed gas warning systems with decades of experience in the field of gas measurement technology.  The international company with headquarters in Germany has a wide range of methods for the detection of toxic, combustible gases and oxygen. On this basis MSR-Electronic develops individual gas sensors, controllers and warning devices for many applications, such as  parking garages, tunnelspetrochemical industry  or  shipping. The products meet more than the  general standards and regulations  and can therefore guarantee the safety of the plantIf you have any questions please send us an email or give us a call.
