Tyco Gas & Flame Detection has introduced the Model X40 integrated alarm and control system, a low power device designed to monitor multiple gas detectors and a wide range of other ﬁeld devices.
The versatile control system receives and supervises inputs using either 4-20mA DC or Serial RS-485 Modbus and is available in two packages: Model X40-8 and Model X40-32. Both packages function as a Modbus Master and can be customised and expanded based on individual application needs using stackable din-rail mounted modules.
All I/O modules are individually addressable and operate on 11.5-30VDC. The X40-8 provides power for up to eight field devices and can house up to six 4-channel I/O modules. The X40-32 provides power for up to 32 field devices and can house up to 12 4-channel I/O Modules. All I/O modules provide for digital and analog inputs as well as alarm relay and analog outputs. They can be remotely installed to simplify field wiring.
The Model X40 is completely field programmable and offers advanced technology with intuitive, embedded intelligence. Among the system’s unique features is a wireless option that can be used with RXT-320 SmartWireless transceivers.
