MSR secures the rescue vehicle hall with digital gas sensors
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 DGC-06 – The central control of gas measurement and fans
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.
