The Sensitron Multiscan++S1 is a versatile gas detection control unit specifically engineered to cater to a wide range of requirements in various industries, including the marine sector. It has been certified SIL1 and ATEX, complying with the EN 60079-0 and EN 60079-29-1 standards. Equipped with a powerful microprocessor, this control panel offers an extensive array of self-diagnostic procedures to promptly identify and locate any potential faults. One notable application of the MULTISCAN++S1 in the marine industry is its ability to manage up to 16, 32, 64, 128, or 256 gas detectors, depending on the version. These detectors can be either addressable type, directly connected on the buses, or analog types (4-20 mA) connected via 8-input STG/IN8S remote modules. Such versatility allows for efficient gas detection and monitoring in maritime environments.
To enhance its functionality, the system architecture of the Sensitron Multiscan++S1 Gas Detection Control Unit also provides up to 516 programmable Open Collector outputs, facilitated by STG/OUT16S modules. These outputs can be utilized for various purposes, such as activating alarms or triggering safety protocols. In the marine industry, these outputs can be crucial for alerting crew members or initiating appropriate actions in case of gas leaks or hazardous situations. In addition to its comprehensive features, the MULTISCAN++S1 includes 8 on-board machine relays, with Multiscan++ 16 offering 6 relays, further expanding its potential applications in the marine sector. These relays can be employed for controlling equipment or activating safety mechanisms, contributing to a safer and more efficient marine environment.
For installation convenience, the gas panel of the MULTISCAN++S1 can be housed within a 19-inch 6U rack or enclosed in a plastic box, which also includes a 27.6 Vdc 4 A power supply. This flexibility in placement ensures seamless integration into various marine vessels, helping to optimize gas detection and control systems on board. The MULTISCAN++S1 gas detection control unit is equipped with a multitude of features that enhance its functionality and versatility. One of its notable capabilities is the ability to be programmed and configured using the Sensitron software. This allows users to easily customize and adapt the unit to meet specific requirements.
The control unit offers three operating levels, which can be accessed and adjusted via password-protected settings. This ensures secure and controlled access to different functionality levels, providing an added layer of security and flexibility. Another important feature of the MULTISCAN++S1 is the ability to set or unset detectors. This feature is particularly useful for field maintenance, as it allows users to temporarily disable one or more channels while performing necessary maintenance tasks.
The control unit also provides the option to test channels in the field. This capability allows for efficient and convenient testing of the gas detection system, ensuring its proper functioning and reliability. Efficient system supervision is made possible through the use of the Modbus protocol. This protocol enables seamless communication and supervision of the system, facilitating effective monitoring and control.
The MULTISCAN++S1 includes an event log that can be easily accessed and visualized either from the gas panel or through the software. This log provides a comprehensive record of events, offering valuable insights and information for system analysis and troubleshooting. To ensure accurate timekeeping, the control unit is equipped with an internal clock that has a backup function. This backup feature allows the unit to retain the correct date and time even after a shutdown, ensuring continuous and reliable operation.
Visual indications are provided through an LCD display and 18 status LEDs, allowing for quick and easy monitoring of the system status. Additionally, acoustic indications are available via a built-in buzzer with a sound level of 60 dB at 1 meter. For user interaction and control, the control unit features front panel buttons, including numbers from 1 to 9, ENT, ESC, and four directional buttons. These buttons enable intuitive navigation and operation of the unit, enhancing user convenience and ease of use.
