MSA’s Z-Gard Series of Sensors and Controllers

MSA’s Z-Gard Series of Sensors and Controllers

The Z-Gard Product Line with an abundance of features like new combustible sensor, an updated calibration process, and a controller (CXII) with BACnet MS/TP have the versatility and flexibility to meet your gas detection needs.

Highlights of the series include the Z-Gard S Sensor - designed to detect the presence of carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and combustible gases in air. These sensors employ solid state, electrochemical or catalytic sensors which generate a representative output signal proportional to the calibrated operating range. All Z-Gard S Sensors are available with 2 output versions, a 4-20mA analog output, or an addressable RS-485 digital signal. Z Gard Sensors with RS-485 digital output are specifically designed to operate as a system with any Z-Gard CXII or C 485 Controller. Z-Gard Sensors with 4-20mA can be installed as stand-alone sensors typically integrated with the Z-Gard C Controller, or common commercial equipment including PLC, DCS, or building automation systems.

Now available! New Quick Start Guides for four varieties of the Z-Gard S Sensor; the Z-Gard S 4-20mA, Z-Gard S CXII, Z-Gard S RS485 and Z-Gard S Apogee. The guides include an overview of features, associated part numbers and wiring diagrams. Visit www.msagasdetection.com keyword z-gard s to view.

The Z-Gard DS Sensor - employs electrochemical sensors which generate a representative output signal proportional to the calibrated operating range. All Z-Gard DS Sensors are available with 2 output versions, a 4-20mA analog output, or an addressable RS-485 digital signal. Z-Gard Sensors with RS-485 digital output are specifically designed to operate as a system with any Z-Gard CXII or C 485 Controller. Z-Gard Sensors with 4-20mA can be installed as stand-alone sensors typically integrated with the Z-Gard C Controller, or common commercial equipment including PLC, DCS, or building automation systems. These are designed to detect the presence of carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide gases in parking garages, vehicle storage areas or wherever these two toxic gases could be found.

The Z-Gard CXII Controller – is a highly-configurable, robust controller that connects with a wide array of MSA Z-Gard Sensors, accepting up to 99 sensors. A large backlit LCD screen displays operating, alarm and fault diagnostic system status. Modbus RTU or BacNet MS/TP digital protocols are available for integration with building automation systems.

The economical Z-Gard C 485 Controller - for wide-ranging gas-monitoring needs, are up to the task. The controllers connect with a wide array of MSA Z-Gard S Sensors, with controller models accepting up to 24 sensors. Relay outputs indicate warning, alarm or sensor fail for each zone, and units are available with one or two zones. A large LED readout displays the active channel and the corresponding sensor gas level.

MSA Z-Gard Sensors and Controllers are ideal for use in underground parking garages, enclosed truck docks, boiler rooms, vehicle maintenance and storage facilities, transit facilities and airport and courier transfer stations.
