Guard Against Fire And Gases

Aug. 1, 2006
The HazardWatch Integrated Fire & Gas Detection System is designed to help process and plant engineers protect their operations, equipment and staff from fire and combustible gases.

The HazardWatch System’s controller, hardware configuration and software have been tested and certified by Factory Mutual to verify NFPA 72 compliance. A modular system, HazardWatch combines a PLC platform with the vendor’s gas and flame field devices. Up to 13 local gas and fire alarm panels can operate over a network up to 25km in length. The system features a standalone local fire and gas alarm panel with a color touch screen and easy-to-use HMI. The system’s optional HazardNet dual media (coaxial cable or fiber optic) fault tolerant communications network supports communication between the local flame panels and optional HazardWatch Central Station with a HazardView workstation that is AC-powered with UPS backup. HazardWatch supports Modbus, Ethernet or ControlNet communication for interfacing with DCS or ESD systems.
