In the following facilities, relevant safety measures according to the Ordinance on Hazardous Substances (GefStoffV) and the Laboratory Guideline must be observed when handling hazardous substances:

  • laboratories
  • research
  • pharmaceutical industry
  • chemical industry
  • medical facilities

Substances are produced, examined and monitored in production processes. For this purpose, mixtures of substances are separated, substances are detected, and chemical reactions and measurements are performed.

Reliable monitoring of the large number of gases in the ambient air must therefore be ensured.

Fixed gas alarm systems from MSR-Electronic are particularly flexible in this respect, as all requirements can be tailored to suit individual needs, whether single sensors with connection to existing BMS systems or complex self-sufficient gas detection systems for large-scale laboratories with different areas.

The gas alarm system from MSR-Electronic includes freely configurable alarm thresholds for compliance with MAK values as well as various interfaces (Modbus, BACnet, analog output) for connection to existing BMSs. The system will be adapted to your requirements thanks to means of a modular structure.

MSR-Electronic designed the Compactcontroller for the connection of up to 10 gas sensors via its own field bus and can be used to warn against various gases. Multiple output and input options allow for easy integration into existing systems.
