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.
