Becker Mining Systems has released a new customisable gas monitoring unit that, the company says, is reliable in all mining environments.
The smartsense® Single Gas Monitor SSSG-100 has been manufactured for everyday safety, Becker says, with the IS-designed terminal module available in two versions: equipped with an on-board sensor to provide an all-in-one environmental monitoring solution, or as a display module to provide quick access to real-time data. Further system expansion is available through the optional external input/output ports for both versions of the terminal module, according to Becker.
“Due to its modular architecture, robust multi-gas monitoring systems can be customised by adding up to six SSSG-100 sensor modules that stack easily and neatly together,” the company says. “Hot-swap capability simplifies sensor calibration and replacement. The customised SSSG calibration caps make for a quick and streamlined LED-guided calibration process.”
The SSSG-100 Alarm Module allows for extra safety with its wide viewing angle, red-amber-green visual warning system, and 100 dBa audible alarm.
“The smartsense Single Gas Monitor SSSG-100 functions like a ‘black box’ as it stores critical information such as calibration and alarm history, and data logging for post-accident investigation,” Becker says.
Fully programmable set points for alarm and output controls, along with short term exposure limit and time-weighted average limits for sensor modules, can be configured and viewed through the RS485 Modbus, it added.
