Bacharach’s MGS-550 leak detector combines electrochemical, semiconductor,
catalytic bead and infrared sensors into one platform to support leak detection
for the new low GWP (Global Warming Potential) refrigerant blends as well as
natural refrigerants to enable gas leak detection in the often harsh environments
of industrial refrigeration.
The MGS-550 can easily be integrated into any building management system
(BMS). The Modbus RTU interface allows the user to program and configure the
unit remotely through the BMS. Remote access gives complete control to the
user when using Modbus. Alternatively, electrical current or volt analog output
provides an industry standard reading using 4-20mA.
Having three integrated relays within each instrument reduces the need for
having to wire alarm devices back to a central control system. Because of the
integrated relays, the Bacharach MGS-550 can be operated as a stand-alone
system. Each relay can be individually programmed to trigger alarm devices and
actions separately or as a redundant system.
The straightforward menu structure is identical regardless of the type of
sensors used, reducing the costs and amount of time for training required upon
installation or during maintenance.
Bacharach’s MGS-550 offers the flexibility of adding a second sensor at any
point in time without the need for any additional controllers. Any sensor can
be remotely mounted from the main instrument to a distance of 5 meters or 15
feet. It meets the requirements of EN 378 and ASHRAE 15.
