an easy user interface, intelligent architecture and innovative functionality. The system offers a scalable, high-performance data acquisition/data logging platform. Users can form a complete gas detection solution by equipping the systems’ fully integrated measurement, display and recording platforms with MSA’s line of transmitters and sensors. Open Ethernet connectivity with web-based configuration and data monitoring functions lets the controller handle many monitoring and historical logging functions. Real-time trends can be viewed from the user’s PC web browser without specialised software. Data monitoring and reporting functions allow for customised reports and layout configurations for viewing trending analysis and more. The email alert feature allows users to view continuous plant status updates when they can’t be physically present. The product’s flexible, modular architecture manages one to six measurement modules on the backplane. Each GasGard 100 Controller serves as a measurement node, avoiding long, dense sensor leads throughout machines or processes. MSA Australia Pty Ltd www.msa.net.au
