EIGHT OR SIXTEEN CHANNEL ALARM & DISPLAY CONTROLLER FOR CRITICAL MONITORING APPLICATIONS
The R-4864 is an ideal solution for monitoring up to 16 critical input variables.
Built around ‘plug and play’ input and output modules, the ToxGas Ranger Series Controller can accept signals from wireless monitors, analog sensors, digital sensors, discrete inputs or even direct connection to bridge-style combustible or VOC sensors. Built in calibration mode, three programmable alarm relays (A1, A2, FAULT and HORN) are included in the base configuration. Up to sixteen 4-20mA analog outputs, 48 discrete relays and an Ethernet interface are available as options.
Status “At a Glance”
The high resolution graphic LCD displays data as trends, bar-graphs and calibrated engineering units; a 24-hour trend graph for each channel is always available. Forty-eight high intensity LED’s show channel status in real-time. In addition to touch-sensitive buttons, a standard magnetic keypad allows non-intrusive operation in potentially hazardous locations.
Digitally Connected Wireless Enabled
The ToxGas Ranger Controller included both master and slave RS-485 serial MODBUS interfaces for maximum flexibility. The controller’s master’s master port reads data from remote RS-485 serial and wireless sensors, while the slave port enables remote MODBUS masters to access the controller’s channel and configuration data in real-time. Built-ion support for wireless gas monitors makes it easy to install and manage a wireless system. Using ProtectorView software and MODBUS/TCP interface, a remote display of the controller’s real-time status and stored configuration is available across any Ethernet network.
The ToxGas Ranger Series Controller is designed from the ground up for critical alarm monitoring and is CSA certified for use in Class 1 Division 2 hazardous areas. In addition to gas detection, the R-4864 Controller is widely used in flow management, tank level monitoring and other critical alarm applications. The R-4864 is available in panel mount, single or dual rack mount, NEMA 4x fiberglass stainless steel, and NEMA 7 explosion proof enclosures.
