Gas Monitoring for Underground Plant Rooms:
Plant rooms are often situated underground. This is by design to save space or by virtue of being built into existing basements or chambers. Underground Plant Rooms often contain an array of machinery such as Water Pumps, Boilers, Sprinkler Systems or Generators.
This machinery, by its very nature, can generate Toxic gases such as Carbon Monoxide and the fact they are below ground level can also result in an Oxygen Deficient Atmosphere developing.
Therefore, it is extremely important to monitor these rooms to ensure the safety of staff and other persons who may need to enter.
Simple low-cost fixed solution:
Standalone monitors are the simplest and therefore lowest cost solution for small Underground Plant Rooms. Because of this the Riken Keiki EC-600 Carbon Monoxide and OX-600 Oxygen monitors are ideal for this application.
Visual and Audible Oxygen Alarms:
The EC-600/ OX-600 display Oxygen levels on an LCD screen. This screen changes colour at each alarm level. This is unique to the Riken Keiki 600 series. HSE Inspectors are Increasingly looking for this feature in Gas Monitors in addition to audio and visual alarms.
The EC-600 / OX-600 has two pre-set alarms. The user can program the alarms to other levels if desired. The EC-600 / OX-600 has relay outputs for the 1st and 2nd alarms. In addition, there is a 4-20mA output. These features allow customers to connect to optional external accessories such as additional sounders beacons and connect to the building management system if required. Users can also connect a data-logger using this feature as well as drive other external items.
The EC-600 / OX-600 has the option of a Sensor extender cable. The extender cable allows the unit to be mounted outside the room with the sensor inside. Staff therefore have the ability to ascertain the state of the room prior to entry. The Extender cable is available in various lengths up to 30M
The EC-600 / OX-600 come ready to operate from a 24 VDC Power supply (an optional mains adapter provides 240VAC operation if required). In addition, a Battery Powered option is available.
