Simple recalibration with exchangeable sensors ensures safety at Austrian winery

The digital CO2 gas sensors from MSR-Electronic (type SC2 of the PolyGard®2 series) include a sensor element with infrared sensor and a measuring amplifier as well as μController for measured value processing. The IR measuring principle with integrated temperature compensation ensures highest accuracy, selectivity and reliability despite the long calibration interval. All data and measured values of the sensor element are stored in μController in a fail-safe manner and are transmitted digitally via the local bus to the sensor board (e.g. SB2 or MSB2). The calibration management is also integrated in the μController of the sensor cartridge. Calibration can be carried out by simply replacing the sensor cartridge or by using the integrated, convenient calibration routine directly at the system.

MSR-Electronic’s GC-06 gas controller was installed at a winery facility in Austria in the existing switch cabinet of the wine storage. It is used for the monitoring and warning of toxic and combustible gases and vapours as well as freon refrigerants within a wide range of the gas measurement technique. Numerous adjustable parameters and set-points permit individual adaptation to many applications. The GC-06 fulfils the functions of monitoring carbon monoxide (CO) in garages, tunnels and cart tracks etc. according to the current EN 50545-1. Additionally, ammonia (NH3) refrigerant plants can be monitored according to the requirements EN 378, VBG 20 and the guidelines "Safety requirements for ammonia refrigeration systems".
