μGard®2 Propane Gas Transmitter MC2-X-P3480-X-X GasAlarm
μGard®2 (developed by MSR) is the new exchangeable sensor unit which is capable of digital value processing, temperature compensation and self control for the continuous monitoring of the ambient air to detect C3H8.
The MC2-X-E3480-X-X is a sensor element at its core with many possible customization’s. The beauty of the microgard 2 system is a micro controller integrated into the Pellistor C3H8 sensor module. The Electrochemical measurement principle with the integrated temperature compensation ensures highest accuracy, selectivity and reliability despite the long calibration interval. The micro controller calculates a linear 4-20 mA (or 2-10V) signal out of the measurement signal of the Pellistor sensor and also stores all relevant measured values and data of the sensor element.
Calibration is a breeze with this modular design allowing easy swapping of the sensor unit or via the use of the integrated calibration routine directly at the system.
The μGard®2 Sensor MC2 is used for the detection of combustible gases in the non-Ex zone when a typical 4 – 20 mA (or 2 – 10 V) signal is required.
Digital measurement value processing incl. temperature compensation
